The Aiken County Coroner has identified the victim of Wednesday’s hunting accident as 55-year-old Charles Reed. The Graniteville man went turkey hunting on Wednesday. When he did not return by late evening, his wife and father-in-law went looking for him.

Around 5:40 p.m., they found Reed in a field where he normally hunted. Emergency crews were called to a dirt road off Rainbow Falls Road. The coroner believes Reed died around 9:25 on Wednesday morning.

An autopsy on Thursday confirms Reed died from a gunshot wound. The coroner says no foul play is suspected at this time.
