While there are very few details available regarding the moments leading up to Few’s tragic fall, police are investigating the incident and believe that alcohol may have played a factor in his death.
From the report:
Police responded to the scene of the fall, at 176 Old Greenville Highway, Clemson, and found Few on the ground, Dixon said. Few was transported to Greenville Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Dixon said. Police do not suspect any foul play, Dixon said. However, the death is under investigation due to the victim’s age and the possibility that alcohol may have been a contributing factor, Dixon said.
