Kershaw County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) deputies discovered a decapitated and dismembered body in a shed behind a home on Dogwood Lane in Cassatt early Monday morning. According to information provided by the KCSO, the suspect, 46-year-old Raleigh Furman Jr., confessed to relatives that “he had done something bad, that he had killed a man and cut him up” after he checked himself into KershawHealth due to chest pains Sunday. Those relatives called Kershaw County dispatchers around 6 a.m. Monday morning and directed deputies to the shed.
