LUMBERTON — The Robeson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the apparent murder of a 31-year-old Florida man whose body was found on Friday.
Ernst Rajkumar, of North Miami, was found dead in a ditch on the 900 block of Dallas Road about 1:30 p.m. Friday after a passerby saw the body and called 911, according to sheriff’s Capt. Anthony Thompson. He had suffered a gunshot wound.
Investigators aren’t sure how long the body had been there before it was discovered, according to sheriff’s Maj. Howard Branch.
“We think it was there just a few days,” Branch said. “We know it wasn’t there long, but it’s hard to say exactly.”
It was unclear how many times Rajkumar has been shot.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office at 910-671-3198.
