GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) - Deputies with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office said an arrest has been made after a body was found in a business parking lot.
An adult-age man's body was found after 8:20 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 15 in the parking lot of Hanover Mortgage located on Wade Hampton Boulevard, according to deputies. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.
The man was identified by the coroner's office as 30-year-old Jeffrey Charles Grant of Easley. His family tells us that he went by "Cj."
On Tuesday Sept. 21, deputies said 28-year-old Dustin Lyn Hammond was taken into custody by Greenville police and transferred to the sheriff's office.
During the investigation, deputies said they learned from video surveillance that Hammond and Grant were together at a motel prior to the incident taking place at around 1 a.m. While walking back to the parking lot, Hammond got into a 2006 Honda Accord that was stolen days before in another incident. Hammond then hit Grant with the car and backed up, repeating the process multiple times.
The sheriff's office said Hammond now faces charges of murder and grand larceny of an automobile and is awaiting a bond hearing, according to the sheriff's office.
Hanover Mortgage released a statement saying, "The victim is not associated in any way with these businesses and our thoughts and prayers go to all their families."
