Remains turn up in pond
SoVaNow.com / September 08, 2010The Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office dive team on Saturday afternoon recovered the body of a man inside a red SUV submerged in 10 to 11 feet of water in a pond on Trinity Church Road.
The body is believed to be that of Jeremiah Taylor of South Hill, who was reported missing by his family on July 24. He owned a red 1995 Isuzu SUV.
Major James Snead of the Mecklenburg County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday that the investigation remains open. An autopsy report from the Medical Examiner has not been received.
Snead said, however, that Taylor’s parents have been notified the remains had been recovered.
A local fisherman who saw what looked to be a shoe floating in the pond Saturday afternoon called 911. When deputies arrived they were directed to a farm pond where anglers had been fishing from their boat, according to a press release from the Sheriff’s Office.
The Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division responded along with the Sheriff’s Office Dive Team.
