SUMMERVILLE — A resident of the Palmetto Park subdivision who was reported missing Tuesday apparently drowned in a neighborhood pond, authorities said.
Someone walking around a retention pond behind Kiawah Circle found Nathaniel Irick's body Wednesday afternoon, Dorchester County Coroner Chris Nisbet said.
Irick, 50, suffered from seizures and other medical issues after an automobile accident in the 1980s, Nisbet said.
He said Irick apparently drowned, but an autopsy will be performed today to rule out any other cause of death.
Summerville officers found no apparent wounds, and foul play is not suspected, police Capt. Jon Rogers said.
