SC Death Appears To Be Suicide

(SULLIVAN COUNTY) – We have new details in a Sullivan County death.

Officials first deemed the incident as some kind of car accident on Benny Mowell Road…but since then we have a different picture of what happened. Investigators say instead of a crash…a passenger in a car apparently jumped out while going at speed.

The man, in his 40s, died at the scene. A witness told investigators the man jumped after talking about killing himself. The investigation is ongoing. Officials are now waiting for the results of an autopsy.
