On Sunday morning July 19, 2015 around 12:18 am the body of Jessie
Damron, age 60 of Golden Mississippi was discovered deceased in the
Mohican River near the bridge on Brinkhaven Rd.
Deputies were first
called to the area on Sat. night around 11:00 pm. Friends of Mr. Damron
indicated that he was last observed in the area of the canoe access at
St. Rt. 514 in Greer. He had been canoeing with them prior to his
disappearance. Personnel from the EKCJFD were able to recover the body
just before 2:00 am.
Damron had been camping in the area with a
group of friends from out of state. Mr. Damron was not wearing a
lifejacket when he was discovered, and alcohol may have been a factor.
His body was transferred to the Franklin County Coroner’s Office.
