A white man has been arrested after a black man was shot to death and then
his body dragged for 10 miles along an American road.

The body of 30-year-old Anthony Hill was found yesterday morning in central
South Carolina.

Police followed a trail of *** to the mobile home of Gregory Collins, 19.

They demanded he come out - but he refused. After a three-hour stand-off,
police forced him out by using tear gas.

He was wearing an empty gun holster.

Sheriff Lee Foster, who has been in law enforcement for 35 years, told a
local news conference it was 'one of the top three most *** crime scenes
he's ever seen'.

Police believe Hill was killed at Collins' mobile home with a shot to the
head, and then his body dragged behind a pickup truck.

'That is the part that's absolutely senseless,' Sheriff Foster said. 'Why
would somebody do that to a person after they were dead?'

Police said the killing is being investigated as a hate crime. So far they
have been unable to find a motive.

Hill and Collins worked together at the Louis Rich turkey factory in
Newberry, South Carolina.
