GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - The body of a hiker from Piedmont has been found at the bottom of a Greenville County waterfall.
Coroner Parks Evans says investigators think 20-year-old Brent Andrew Elrod slipped and fell while trying to climb Wild Cat Falls at around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.
Elrod's girlfriend found him floating face down in the water Thursday night after she was unable to get in touch with him.
An autopsy was being performed Friday. Elrod was a student at North Greenville University.
