Sumter County Sheriff’s deputies say 61-year-old man’s death Wednesday is now an active homicide investigation.
Robert “Bobby” Troublefield, 61, was found unconscious by relatives at his home in the 4900 block of Live Oak Road Wednesday morning, according to Braden Bunch, a Sheriff’s Office spokesman. He was declared dead at the scene.
Troublefield had been shot multiple times, Bunch said. The results of an autopsy, which was completed Friday morning, showed his injuries were not self-inflicted.
The Sheriff’s Office initially did not release information on the cause of death as to not hinder the investigation other than to say the cause of death was not natural, Bunch said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
