Police in Cayce say the body of six year old Faye Swetlick was found Thursday in her Churchill Heights neighborhood

CAYCE, SC (WOLO)– Police in Cayce say the body of six year old Faye Swetlick was found Thursday in her Churchill Heights neighborhood. Police also say they found the body of a man in the Churchill Heights subdivision.

ABC Columbia’s Tim Scott is live outside the heights subdivision with what investigators revealed.

Authorities did not reveal if Faye and the man whose body was found nearby in the neighborhood, knew each other or if their deaths are connected.

However, earlier this week, Byron Snellgrove, the Director of Cayce’s Department of Public Safety, said Faye was a girl whose love of life was contagious.

Officials say the investigation into her homicide has begun and local, state and federal partners, will work together to bring this case to a close. @Cayce_DPS
