Update on Pickens County Sheriff’s Office Death Investigation

Over the course of the past two days, the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office has been conducting an investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of two males, identified as Alex Mitchell Moore (25 yoa) and Skylar Wolfgang Cary (24 yoa), who were found near 128 Edwards Lane in Central, South Carolina.

Through the course of this investigation, detectives have identified numerous witnesses and have since developed a person of interest in this case.   At this time, no arrests have been made due to our obligation to investigate claims of self-defense, as is alleged in this case.  The investigation remains ongoing while detectives continue to collect, analyze, and compare evidence against statements provided by witnesses and the person of interest.
