Two weeks after a Winnsboro woman was found dead, police still are looking for the man whom investigators say is responsible.

34-year-old Jennifer Monique Stone was pronounced dead on July 4th outside of a home on South Garden Street, Winnsboro Police Chief Freddie Lorick said.

Lorick said it appeared she died due to strangulation and they were waiting on an autopsy to confirm that.

An arrest warrant was filed for 36-year-old Latroy Sampson after Stone's body was found. He remains on the loose two weeks later. Sampson's photos are attached to this story. He is described as 6 feet tall and weighing 250 pounds.

Lorick said Sampson should be considered dangerous and is possibly armed.

Investigators believe Sampson has connections in the Columbia area and my be near Oceola and South Saluda Streets.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Sampson is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
