The remains of a body that were found in a wooded area in Bath Tuesday are tentatively being identified as a Warrenville man who has been missing since December. At this time, the remains are believed to be those of 25-year-old Ronnie Cheatham Jr. of Warrenville, according to Tim Carlton of the Aiken County Coroner's Office in a statement released Tuesday night. An autopsy is scheduled in Newberry this morning. Carlton said that latent finger prints led to the preliminary identification. Carlton added that the death is being considered as suspicious. The remains were found about 2 p.m. in a wooded area near Anthony Drive and Horse Creek in Bath, according to Lt. Troy Elwell of the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. The remains were discovered by two people looking for scrap metal. The Burnettown Police Department, Sheriff's Office, the Aiken County Coroner's Office and the Solicitor's Office responded to the scene. Cheatham was last seen Dec. 6 by his girlfriend at 223 Glenwood Drive. Investigators said Cheatham left the residence for the store and was not heard from or seen since. Aiken County Sheriff's Office and Coroner's Office are working on the ongoing investigation.
