A Lexington County man was found dead in his residence Sunday afternoon with his head smashed in, officials said Monday.
Timothy Edward Tice, 45, of 220 Jakes Landing Road, Lot E-4, just south of the Lake Murray dam, died from a fractured skull “resulting from a blunt force injury,” said county Coroner Harry Harman.
Harman has ruled Tice’s death a homicide.
The coroner’s office was called Sunday afternoon to Tice’s residence, where the man was pronounced dead, officials said.
No other details, including when Tice might have died, or any circumstances of his death, were available Monday evening.
The coroner’s office and the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department are investigating.
