The body found at a Williston, S.C., water treatment plant has been positively identified as that of Daris Brown, an investigator said.

Brown, 23, had been missing since Feb. 24 when he left a group of friends to walk to another friend’s house. His body was found in a water treatment plant pool Monday, Williston Police Investigator Rodney Pruitt said.

Pruitt said Brown’s cause of death appeared to be drowning, but investigators were waiting on a few more details to confirm. As of now, he is calling the death suspicious pending further investigation.

One person has been arrested in connection with the case for giving misleading information.
