MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina officials have found a
human body encased in concrete in a trash bin during their investigation into a missing 2-year-old boy.
Berkeley County Sheriff Wayne DeWitt said Wednesday that investigators were led to the trash bin in Bowman after interviewing the father of Rodricus Williams and the father's girlfriend.
DeWitt said the bin and its contents have been sent to the Medical University of South Carolina for a forensic examination to determine whose body it is.
Rodricus initially was reported missing Tuesday along Charleston's Battery, but police think he was never there.
The boy's 29-year-old father, Roger Anthony Williams, was arrested early Wednesday morning on several bench warrants. It was not known whether he has an attorney.
