Two bodies found in Mount Pleasant identifed, no crimes involved
Neither of the bodies found in Mount Pleasant Wednesday was connected to any crime, according to the Charleston County Coroner’s Office.
A fisherman reported a body floating in the Intracoastal Waterway near the Pitt Street Bridge Wednesday morning. The coroner’s office identified him on Thursday as Thomas Harkness, 25, of Mount Pleasant. He drowned, and his death is believed to be a suicide, Deputy Coroner Bobbi Jo O’Neal said.
A body was found along Rifle Range Road late Wednesday afternoon. The body was at the edge of the woods between Six Mile and Hamlin roads.
The coroner’s office identified him as Randy Morris, 54, who lived in the area. He died of natural causes, O’Neal said.
