SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Spartanburg County deputies are investigating a death after a body was found near New Cut Road Tuesday morning.

Lt. Kevin Bobo with the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office said they received a man down call at New Cut Road and Wingo Corporate Drive about 6:45 a.m.

When deputies arrived, they found someone dead beside a vehicle, Bobo said.

Deputies and the coroner are investigating the death, but so far, Bobo said foul play is not suspected.

Sheriff Chuck Wright spoke with the media where he was audibly upset. He said the man was a Spartanburg County Detention Center officer and on his way to work when he was found dead Tuesday morning.

Wright said it appeared the man had taken his own life, but they were investigating to assure there was no foul play.

"I'd just ask that you would pray for this family," Wright said.
