Kershaw County deputies are trying to determine if the deaths of two people are related.
Sheriff Jim Matthews said at a news conference Wednesday that the body of 59-year-old Jerry Geiger was found in the bedroom of his home in the northern part of the county Tuesday night after family members said they had not heard from him in a few days.
Investigators say Geiger had been beaten and shot.
Matthews says the second body was found in woods elsewhere in the county a short time after a man driving Geiger's truck was taken into custody. The identity of the second body has not been released.
Matthews says the man found driving Geiger's truck is being questioned, but has not been charged.
