Davis Goodwin

Investigators are seeking two people of interest in the death of a Bowman man, Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said Thursday.

“We have developed these two individuals as persons who may have information in this case,” Ravenell said. “If you know them or know where they can be located, please let us know.”

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s investigators are seeking 25-year-old Joshua Nyrell Davis and 24-year-old Daniel Goodwin in connection with the investigation.

A caller reported finding a 55-year-old Ervin E. Jones lying deceased on the floor inside his Dibble Street home at 5 p.m. Tuesday.

Witnesses said they last saw Jones alive around 2 p.m. that day when he was asking about a tool.

Jones’ cause of death has not been announced, but deputies noted it is an apparent homicide.

Other witnesses said that earlier they saw two men sitting in a green Honda Accord in Jones’ yard.

Goodwin stands about 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs around 150. Davis is 5 feet 6 inches and around 140 pounds.

If anyone has any information on either Davis or Goodwin or the incident involving Jones, they are asked to contact the sheriff office at 803-534-3550 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
