Remains of a human skull were reportedly located in rural Colleton County, South Carolina on Wednesday afternoon, prompting an investigation by the Colleton County sheriff’s office and the local coroner’s office.
The skull was reportedly found at approximately 1:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday (January 31, 2024) by a woman whose dog dug it up near Round O – an unincorporated community of 2,000 people located approximately seven-and-a-half miles northeast of Walterboro, S.C.
The woman called 9-1-1 to report the discovery, sources familiar with the situation told our outlet.
It’s not immediately clear whether authorities have located any other remains associated with the skull. As of this writing, no positive identification of the remains has been made.
Sources familiar with the situation say the skull was found near the residence of Gregory Donell Bodison, a man in his early sixties from Round O who disappeared seventeen months ago. Bodison was last seen at his home on September 11, 2022. Early last year, Colleton County deputies enlisted the support of the public in their efforts to find him – deeming his disappearance “suspicious.”
Searches of the area using drones turned up nothing – and efforts to locate Bodison via financial transaction data or cell phone data also came up empty.
Bodison is 5-foot-8, 140 pounds. He is black, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and a black and brown shirt.
Anyone with information related to Bodison’s whereabouts – or information related to the remains discovered in Round O – is encouraged to call the Colleton sheriff’s office at 843-549-2211.
