ROCK HILL, S.C. -- Detectives are investigating the murder of a Rock Hill man after police say they found a dead body Thursday evening.

According to police, Alexander Hardin, 62, was found by a neighbor, Hardin's girlfriend and her daughter in a home off of Orr Drive near Ogden Road.

Police say Hardin, who went by "Boot," was assaulted with an object and believe he had been dead for several days before he was found.

Hardin's brother told police he last saw him on Sunday at the home.

Detectives have learned Hardin recently lost a lot of money and had gotten on bad terms with his son, who lived with him at the home.  The son has been in contact with police, but they won't say if he is a suspect.
