Man Found Dead In Doughnut Shop Restroom

The body of a customer who apparently died in the locked restroom of a Greenville doughnut shop wasn't discovered until seven hours later.

The dead man was found around 5:40 p.m. Wednesday afternoon at the Dunkin' Donuts on South Memorial Drive in Greenville.

Dunkin' Donuts District Manager Cyndi Hudson tells us she received a call that a customer tried to get into the restroom, but the door was locked.

One of the employees knocked on the door to ask if anyone was inside and got no answer. They then took the screws off the door to get inside and that's when they found 41-year-old Jack Mewborn of Greenville dead on the floor. Hudson says many of the employees were shaken up by the discovery.

Mewborn was last seen walking into the restroom around 10:40 a.m., but his body wasn't discovered until seven hours later.

Greenville police say this is a death investigation with no sign of suspicious activity. The Medical Examiners Office tells us the cause of death is pending.
