DAYTON TEEN FOUND DEAD, FOUL PLAY RULED OUT 

December 21, 2013

DAYTON – A Columbia County Transfer Station employee discovered the body of 17-year-old Cody J. Snider of Dayton lying on the ground just inside the fence near the public access road below Rock Hill at approximately 10:50 a.m. this morning.

The Columbia County Sheriff's Office and the Columbia County Deputy Coroner were called to investigate. The investigation remains open, but the lead investigator has ruled out foul play. It appears the juvenile fell approximately 150 feet from the top of the cliff above the transfer station as many as two days ago.

The Columbia County Transfer Station, located at 500 S Cottonwood Street in Dayton, is only open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Fire District 3 rope rescue personnel assisted deputies in examining the scene, which took most of the afternoon Saturday and required access to the sheer cliff above the location where the body was found.

It is uncertain at this time whether an autopsy will be conducted, Deputy Coroner June Riley stated Saturday evening.
