WALTERBORO, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 22-year-old missing man was found shot to death in his own trunk.

Colleton County deputies said Derrick Rhodes’ car was found Tuesday afternoon at a boat landing in Yemassee. He had been reported missing for about a day.

Rhodes’ mother told WCSC-TV that she thinks people have information on who killed her son and why and is asking them to talk to deputies.

Asperita Wright said her husband died on Dec. 31 making this even harder to bear.
