Forensic detectives attended the autopsy conducted on a Piedmont man found deceased yesterday morning along the bank of the Saluda River.

The victim whose identity was released earlier today by the Pickens County Coroner’s Office has been identified as Mr. Steven Carroll Fletcher (38 yoa).  His vehicle was recovered late last night within a couple hundred yards of the river’s bank on the Greenville County side not far from where the body was first discovered by an area resident in Pickens County.

The autopsy confirmed that there was no physical trauma to the body and no visual evidence of foul play. Requests for additional toxicology tests have been submitted and the Sheriff’s Office will continue to investigate the days and any events that may have involved Mr. Fletcher prior to his death.

The Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that the victim’s vehicle had been parked at the site where it was found for at least three days prior to the discovery of his body.

The Sheriff’s office asks anyone that may have any information connected to Mr. Fletcher to please call the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office at (864) 898-5500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CrimeSC.
