Man Murdered In Beaufort County

A man is dead after deputies say they found his body inside a vehicle early this morning.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office says they were called to Minor Run Road in the Edwards area at 12:15 a.m. Wednesday for a traffic accident. When they arrived they found an Aurora man dead in a vehicle on the side of the road.

Lawmen say Bobby Buck had a gunshot wound. The 33-year-old man has been a registered sex offender since 2005.

Buck was convicted in Beaufort County in 2004 for taking indecent liberties with a child and he spent just over two years in prison for that crime. His criminal record dates back to 1998, including several B&E convictions.

Buck was supposed to appear in court Tuesday on pending misdemeanor drug charges.

Deputies say they have now identified a suspect in the Buck's murder, but have not released any information about an arrest. They are asking anyone with additional information to call them at 252-946-7111.

    Justice was served. God knows what he did to those girls, and it will haunt them the rest of thier lives. Moving forward will be easier now that he is gone and wont be running into him while trying to put it all behind them. Glad to know he will not be looking for victims anymore.

    I KNEW BOBBY AND REGARDLESS OF HIS PAST WE ALL HAVE SKELETONS IN OUR CLOSET. NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO JUDGE ANYONE UNLESS THEY ARE GOD. JUST REMEMBER BELIEVE HALF OF WHAT YOU HEAR AND HALF OF WHAT YOU SEE. HE WAS A VERY GOOD PERSON AND EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES AND REGARDLESS OF WHETHER HE WAS ON DRUGS ETC. NOONE HAS THE RIGHT TO TAKE ANOTHER BREATHING HUMANS LIFE.HAVE RESPECT FOR HIS FAMILY AND LET HIM RIP.HE HAD TO PAY FOR HIS SINS IN A HORRIBLE WAY.

      Only if they were molesting children. I guess if he molested your child, you would spend your time baking him brownies. Maybe you would let him babysit the child again? You don't sound all that bright.

        Children dont LIE!!!! There is rarely ever any physical evidence. You dont know what your talking about. Taking the side of a child predator tells me you are on their low life level. Learn the facts. Get educated and I pray YOU never have children!

          I personally work with children on an everyday basis and yes they all lie. Rather it be a little white lie or a huge lie. They are not always truthful. On a sn: alot of children are corrupted to say things by family members. I was once that little girl. People are crazy and do very stupid things to other people. Its sad, but its what this world is coming to.

    It seems if you drink and abuse drugs long enough, sooner or later it always catches up with you and get caught and end up in prison or like this young man. Hope the person that committed this crime is soon arrested. Prayers for the family.

    Well everybody. Bobby was buried today and I think it is about time to stop making these comments and bury all the hate and disrespect for him and his family. Please pray for his family, they are all good people.

      Boy, there are some mean people on the media and on this site. Amen Puff, preach it. Now negative ones go put down someone else and their families. What God must think when he looks down on those he created and sees nothing but hatred and meanness. Sad world we live in. Forgive them Father for they know not what that do. And they don't even care!! Family you are in thoughts and prayers. Bobby is now home and out of this hateful world and with his heavenly father.
