St. Helena shooting victim identified

ST. HELENA ISLAND, SC (WTOC) - A man fatally shot Oct. 6 on Folly Road has been identified.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office said that Joseph Frank Washington, 32, of St. Helena Island, was killed in a shooting.

He was found inside a burning car last week and appears to have been shot, according to the sheriff's office.

Investigators are still trying to figure out if the Washington's death is in anyway related to a murder on St. Helena Island that happened the night before.

Julius Chaplin was found shot to death in his driveway on Fripp Point Road.
