GRAY COURT, SC (FOX Carolina) -

This weekend marks a sad six-year anniversary for one Upstate family still searching for answers in the suspicious death of their loved one.

Investigators said they found 21-year-old Shannon Mangle's truck wrecked on a utility pole on Boyd Road on April 21, 2008. Deputies said his body was discovered the next day in a ditch six miles from the crash site on Bull Hill Road. Mangle's neck was broken and his legs were tangled in barbed wire.

Laurens County deputies said they've classified it as a suspicious death,  not a homicide, because they can't be sure someone else caused his death.

However, Mangle's family disagrees.

"I think he was getting chased, and with him getting chased they probably clipped the back of his truck making him slam into the utility pole," said Sharunaka Williams.

Mangle's family and investigators are still searching for answers in the case.

Investigators say they need witnesses, who might have seen Mangle after the crash, to come forward and call Crime Stoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
