BEAUFORT, S.C. (WSAV) — The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office(BCSO) has identified the human remains found in Shell Point as 28-year-old Michael Seloske.
After remains were found on Apr.11 in a wooded area close to a marsh off Broad River Drive, officials found a driver’s license in the deceased’s clothing but the identity could not be established while at the scene.
Officials sent the remains for autopsy at the Medical University of South Carolina where it was confirmed as Seloske.
Forensic pathologists were unable to determine cause and manner of death during the autopsy, but toxicology studies may be conducted at a later time. Seloske’s dental records were examined by odontologists and were able to positively identify him.
BCSO investigators located and interviewed people associated with Seloske and learned that he was last seen leaving his Broad River Dr. residence in Nov. 2021, but was not reported missing.
Authorities say at this point in the investigation, there is no evidence of foul play.
