Cayce, SC 01/02/2024 (Paul Kirby) - Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher said that one man died after fleeing from Cayce police officers first in a vehicle and then on foot last Friday.  Fisher said that Raheem Jamar Bonham, 30, of West Columbia died on I-26 near the 114-mile marker at approximately 11:40 p.m. on Friday, December 29, 2023.
