Neighbor’s death is linked to 6-year-old girl, who was found dead: Police
The three-day search for a missing 6-year-old South Carolina lady ended with her body being discovered in a woody location and cops piecing together hints that connect her death to a 30- year-old neighbor.
” We can’t find her,” said Faye Marie Swetlik’s distraught mother to 911 on Monday. Authorities with the Cayce Department of Public Safety on Friday launched the frantic mother’s five-minute call to police an hour after her daughter went missing out on from their front yard.
Sgt. Evan Antley stated at a press conference that throughout the early stages of looking for Faye in the Churchill Heights area of Cayce, they talked with next-door neighbors like Coty Scott Taylor and evaluated hours of video, however “felt we needed to go back to and look for more proof.”
Investigators found Faye’s body in a wooded location and minutes later Taylor’s body was found inside his house.
Investigators did not state what led them to Taylor after finding Faye as he does not have a criminal record nor is he understood by police.
” He was a next-door neighbor. He was not a relative or a pal. He was merely a neighbor … Taylor’s house to Faye’s house are 100 to 150 feet from each other,” stated Antley, who verified that their deaths “are linked.”
Cops also found a “important” piece of evidence “that would have been listed on her missing persons leaflet” in Taylor’s trash.
The Lexington County Coroner, which determined Scott at a press conference on Friday, is performing autopsies.
” We have no suspects at this time. We have made no arrests. We are not seeking any persons of interest since this time,” stated Antley. “We have no reason to believe that there is an active risk in the neighborhood.”
