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.
