Dr. Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary issued the following statement:
“I was informed by the Union County Sheriff’s office this morning that a deceased body of a male was found in the bushes of the island in front of the SES campus. Evidently, this person died or was killed in another location and was left on our campus. The police are investigating and said their forensic investigation of the scene has concluded. They assured me there was no break-in to the SES building.
“First and foremost, we all need to pray for this victim whatever the circumstances, and for his family, as they will be grieving the loss of their loved one. It is at times like this we are reminded of the fragility of life and of the comfort and security of eternal life we have as disciples of our Savior.”
