Suspect Arrested in
Lott Murder Case

  After six month long murder investigation, Saluda County investigators along with SLED have made an arrest in the murder of a Saluda County woman. 
  Back in June of this year it was reported that Nancy Caughman Lott was missing.  It was not until two months later that her remains were recovered in the Edgefield County landfill. 
  Investigators along with deputies have worked tirelessly trying to get some sort of solid lead into the case.  Friday, December 16, 2016, a warrant was issued and served on Kincaid Bobby Mitchell, age 46, of Ridge Spring.   He is charged with the murder of Ms. Lott and in connection with her disappearance. 
  Sheriff Perry stated that many man hours went into this complex investigation. He further stated
 that he would like to thank Saluda County Coroner’s Office along with Edgefield Sheriff’s Office and SLED for being of great assistance in this case.
