INDIAN LAND — Police are investigating the apparent stabbing death of an Indian Land resident early Sunday.
Jimmie Adams, 47, died at his home at 1217 East Arrow Lake Court just past 1:30 a.m. Sunday. As of Monday afternoon, charges hadnt been filed.
Deputies with the Lancaster County Sheriffs Office responded to the home after a report of a domestic disturbance situation. They found Adams on the floor, the victim of an apparent stabbing, according to a brief statement from the sheriffs office Monday.
Criminal and crime scene investigators processed the home and by Monday morning all involved parties have been located and are cooperating with the investigation, according to the Sheriffs Office. No suspects have been named.
The home sits in the Legacy Park subdivision. Its just beside the intersection of Arrow Lake and Cool Mist Court, near a cul-de-sac. A woman answering the door at the residence declined to comment on the incident.
Bill Palmer lives a few houses down on Cool Mist. He moved to the area in 2001 and cant recall anything like what happened over the weekend, he said.
Very peaceful, Palmer said. The only thing weve ever had to deal with is the kids doing vandalism once in a while. Break-ins dont happen.
Paris Slocum, another neighbor, said he knew someone who lived in the home, but it wasnt the victim. Slocum said residents werent sure what was happening as deputies responded and still hadnt heard much by Monday.
We thought maybe somebody broke in, he said. We didnt think nothing like that (a stabbing death).
Neighbors say officers, investigators and flashing lights surrounded the home for more than four hours Sunday morning. Neighbors asking officers on scene were ushered by the home without much explanation, they said.
Palmer said Monday one neighbor hed spoken with heard screaming prior to deputies arriving on scene. Neighbors agreed the incident doesnt leave them feeling more anxious about the neighborhood.
Very peaceful, Palmer said. Thats why we moved here. Kids can play in the street.
The Sheriffs Office plans to complete the investigation before releasing additional information.
