Chandler Jordan Threatt, 18, of West Ashley has been identified as the body found on Sullivan’s Island Wednesday morning.

Search teams with the Coast Guard were patrolling the Charleston Harbor after receiving distress calls.

Crews were sent to investigate around 4:30 a.m. after multiple people at the Charleston Harbor Marina reportedly heard someone screaming for help in the harbor, Zorn says. A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and a U.S. Coast Guard boat were dispatched to Castle Pinckney, but did not immediately locate anyone.

Threatt's death is being investigated by the Charleston Police Department, Sullivan’s Island Police Department, and the Charleston County Coroner’s Office.
