Greenville County officials say a 14-year-old South Carolina boy was found dead in a hotel room with his “incoherent” mother a week after he died.
During a 911 call from the InTown Suites hotel in Greenville, authorities found Landon Chance Poston dead and his incapacitated mother also in the room.
“In an official statement, the Greenville County Coroner’s Office stated that Mr. Poston’s death is estimated to have occurred on November 14, 2022. An autopsy was conducted on November 22, 2022,” the statement added.
According to Greenville County Coroner’s Office, authorities transported Poston’s mother to the intensive care unit (ICU) after finding her in the hotel room with her deceased son.
Poston’s disability cannot be determined until court documents related to the case are received by the coroner’s office.
An autopsy report, including the teenager’s cause and manner of death, has not yet been released. On average, autopsy reports take eight to twelve weeks to complete.
This incident is being investigated by the Greenville County Coroner’s Office and the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office.
