The Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) is investigating a 30-year-old man’s death as a murder.
According to a KCSO press release, investigators are looking into the death of Tykendrick Jamail Williamson, who officials said had no fixed address. Deputies responded around 6:10 p.m. on Aug. 10 to a spot behind a building on Bob Hugh Road near Jefferson where two 16-year-old boys had discovered the body.

The boys met deputies and led them to the abandoned cinder block building. It appeared to deputies that Williamson’s body had been placed there several days earlier.

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews said investigators from Kershaw and Lancaster counties are working jointly on the investigation as Williamson was known to frequent the Kershaw area in Lancaster County. He said investigators learned that, earlier in the week, prior to the time that Williamson was murdered, there was a physical altercation between Williamson and another black male in Lancaster County.

Matthews did not say in the press release what led to investigators determining Williamson had been murdered.

At this time, investigators do not have a solid motive, Matthews said, but are working the case “aggressively” and are interviewing potential witnesses.

Anyone with information relative to this crime should contact Inv. Chris Davis with the Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 425-1512 or Inv. Brad Whiteside with the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office at (803) 283-3388.

All information will be treated with the utmost confidentiality, Matthews said in the press release.
