CANDLER, NC (AP) — Investigators have discovered human bite
marks on the torso of a 4-year-old boy who was found dead in a
Buncombe County mobile home.

Autopsy information released Monday showed evidence of bites on
Trent Scott’s buttocks, back and chest, as well as signs he was
struck.

Heather Benson reported finding her son’s body when she awoke at
their home in Candler on the morning of April 19.

Benson’s friend, William Godfrey Hedden, was also in the home.
Police said Hedden had what appeared to be blood on his skin and
clothing.

Investigators took dental impressions from Hedden that will be
compared to the child’s injuries.

Hedden has been charged with first-degree murder. It was not
clear if he has an attorney.
