Authorities Investigate Highway Homicide

Daisy Nevils Highway Daisy Nevils Highway

Authorities in Evans County are investigating a homicide on the highway. Just after 8pm last night, someone spotted an overturned car on the Daisy Nevils Highway in Evans County. When sheriff's deputies arrived, they found a man they believe to be the driver dead inside the overturned car.

But investigators don't think the crash killed him. "His injuries are not consistent with a car crash and his body was found away from the car," said Chief Deputy Randall Tippins.

Early this morning, authorities arrested two suspects, Erastor Ramirez and Pedro Nieto. They are seeking a third man, Jose Ayala. All three suspects live in Evans County.
