Orangeburg County officials say a 60-year-old Eutawville man whose body was found on Lake Marion’s shore drowned.
Leroy Adair Dantzler of Miracle Drive died from asphyxia due to drowning, according to Orangeburg County Chief Deputy Coroner Sean Fogle.
Dantzler was with friends Sunday and, at about 11:30 p.m., decided to step outside alone. He didn’t return.
Dantzler was found on the shore of Lake Marion after a search on Monday morning, about 200 feet from the pier he was fishing from earlier.
