A 14-year-old South Carolina boy was found dead in a hotel one week before police arrived
South Carolina boy: A 14-year-old South Carolina boy was found dead in a hotel room with his “incoherent” mother about a week after his estimated date of death, according to Greenville County officials.
Monday, when police went to an InTown Suites hotel in Greenville to answer a 911 call, they found Landon Chance Poston dead and his mother unable to care for him.
“There were no obvious signs of physical injury noted to Mr. Poston. Mr. Poston’s date of death is estimated to be November 14, 2022. An autopsy was performed on Mr. Poston on November 22, 2022,” the Greenville County Coroner’s Office stated in a media release.
The Greenville County Coroner’s Office confirmed to Fox News Digital that authorities had transported Poston’s mother to an intensive care unit after finding her in the hotel room with her deceased son.
Since the coroner’s office is still waiting for court documents about the case, they could not say whether or not Poston had any disabilities.
The final autopsy report, which will say how and why the teen died, has not been released. Usually, it takes between 8 and 12 weeks to finish the final autopsy report.
The Greenville County Coroner’s Office, along with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office, is actively investigating the incident.
