SC: Hunter found dead in remote area of Abbeville County, coroner says


A man preparing for hunting season with friends was found dead near his tree stand Saturday, a half mile from a main road, according to an Upstate coroner.

Abbeville County Coroner Dr. Mark Dorn said Robert Morgan, 70, of Taylors, was found dead by someone in his hunting club just before 1 p.m.

The area is so remote, it took 10 to 15 minutes to reach the body on ATV, Dorn said.

Morgan was on the property preparing his deer stand and surrounding area for the upcoming hunting season, the coroner said.

Dorn said no foul play was suspected.

An autopsy was scheduled for Tuesday.
