Victim found shot to death at vacant mobile home in Greenville Co.


GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – Deputies are investigating after a person was found shot to death in front of a vacant mobile home in Greenville County.

Greenville County Sheriff’s Office deputies said a man was found face down, partially clothed in front of a vacant mobile home on East Pine Lake Circle Wednesday.

The victim’s body was discovered by a bystander who made the 911 call at about 11:45 a.m., deputies said. When deputies arrived on the scene, they discovered the body with what appeared to be at least one gunshot wound.

The coroner identified the victim as 24-year-old Tommy Emmaus Anderson, Jr., of Taylors.

Tangenika Smith lives in the neighborhood. She said it’s typically pretty quiet.

“We’re not scared over here. We don’t have strange people. You don’t ever see people over there in that trailer,” said Smith.

The Greenville County Coroner’s Office said the manner of death is homicide.

“Just trying to figure out exactly what led to this, when this occurred, and of course who may be responsible for this,” said Public Information Officer for the Sheriff’s Office, Ryan Flood.

This case remains under investigation.
