Body Found Near Greenwood on Highway 82

Greenwood authorities are now launching a death investigation after a man is found dead Tuesday afternoon.

Assistant Police Chief Marvin Hammond says the body of 34-year old Lamarcus Hemphill was found in a field off of Highway 82 East.

A viewer sent this photo of officers at the scene around 3:30 Tuesday.

A family member told reporters that Hemphill had been missing since Friday night and that his mother found the body.

Hemphill allegedly fled from a traffic stop.

Hammond says the remains have been sent to the state crime lab for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
