Police Tie Neighbor's Death to 6-Year-Old Girl's

Newser — Bob Cronin

Police in South Carolina have decided the deaths of a 6-year-old girl and an adult neighbor, whose bodies were found the same day, are one case.

While searching trash cans in the neighborhood, investigators found something listed on the missing person flyer for Faye Marie Swetlik, who was found dead Thursday, WIS reports.

The can belonged to Coty Scott Taylor, 30. Police, who had interviewed Taylor and searched his home before the girl's body was found, then went back to his house, where they discovered his body.

Investigators would not say Friday what the evidence was, but they said they're not looking for anyone else in the case. Faye and Taylor lived less than 500 feet apart.

They were neighbors, police said, not friends or relatives. Taylor had no criminal record, per WYFF. Police did not give a cause of death for Taylor.

Autopsies on both bodies are scheduled for Saturday. "This is not the outcome we wanted," a Cayce officer said. "Our work continues to bring justice for Faye Marie Swetlik."
