Four Blackville men are facing charges associated with a man’s body that was found decomposed and charred in Bamberg County.
On April 4, the Bamberg County Coroner’s Office arrived at a wooded area near Mount Zion Church Road close to the Barnwell County line, where a man’s body had been discovered burned and in a state of decomposition.
Local authorities called on the S.C. Law Enforcement Division to assist with the investigation.
On Friday, SLED announced the man’s body was identified as that of Timothy Jared Brison, 19, of Blackville.
SLED announced that Montrell Davonta Isaac, 23, of 131 Rain Drop Dr., Blackville, was arrested on one count of murder.
Isaac’s arrest warrant accuses him of shooting Brison at 208 Rivers St. on March 27.
The body was disposed of in a wooded location, the warrant states.
The following individuals are facing one count each of accessory after the fact to murder: Dwayne Lieutenant Prophet Jr., 23, of 208 Rivers St.; Edwin Lyn Jones, 28, of 10 Hardwood Dr. and Darren Latroy Saxon, 23, of 224 Falcon St.
Warrants accuse Jones of cleaning his vehicle after Brison’s death.
Warrants say Jones allowed his vehicle “to be used after the shooting.”
As for Prophet and Saxon, warrants accuse them of “cleaning up the crime scene and disposing of evidence.”
A memorial service for Brison will be announced at a later time by Dyches Funeral Home of Barnwell.
According to his obituary, Brison enjoyed riding 4-wheelers and dirt bikes with his family and friends.
He attended Blackville-Hilda High School.
Family members reported Brison missing in late March.
