The body of Stephen Smith has been exhumed, autopsied, and reinterred. A SLED security team accompanied the body to a location in Florida where the examination took place. Information on the new autopsy has not been released yet.
Meanwhile, news of two possible persons of interest has come to light. Investigations into those leads are continuing.
Stephen Smith’s body was discovered on a rural road in Hampton county back in 2015. Just 2-weeks ago the South Carolina law enforcement division announced they are now investigating Smith’s death as a homicide. Smith’s death was initially investigated as a hit-and-run but investigators say the evidence did not support that as a cause of death.
