Authorities Identify Dead Man Linked to Disappearance and Death of Faye Swetlik”

Authorities said Friday they have linked a 30-year-old man to a missing 6-year-old SC girl who vanished earlier this week, after both were found dead.

"I checked all the houses in my neighborhood and anybody that actually answered is out looking for her too", the girl's mother said after carefully describing what her daughter was wearing through tears in the 911 call.

Faye was reported missing Monday afternoon. Both bodies were found Thursday. "He was merely a neighbor", Antley said.

Faye Swetlik's death is being investigated as a homicide.

According to Antley, the evidence that led to the discovery of Faye's body was found inside a trash can outside of Taylor's home.

"And as your vice president and as a father, let me say we were deeply saddened to receive word this afternoon that the remains of Faye Swetlik, a 6-year-old girl who went missing from her parents' front yard just three days ago, have been found", Pence said on Thursday.

Further details about Taylor's death will be provided after an autopsy scheduled for this weekend is performed, said Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher, who officially identified his body. "We made them late for work, we searched their homes and we invaded their privacy", Antley said.

The girl's body was found Thursday in the woods, and police think it was put there after investigators found the evidence inside the trash can, Cayce Public Safety Sgt. Evan Antley said at a Friday news conference. Taylor's body was discovered a short time later.

Swetlik's body had not been in the wooded area "for a very long time at all", Antley said.

Janet Shamlian is in SC with the latest details law enforcement has shared in their investigation.

Police assured residents the area is safe.

"We have no suspects at this time".

"This has been a terrible situation for our community and our department", Antley said.

"Just because we don't have any suspects now we want to make sure we don't have anyone involved with the disappearance of Faye Swetlik", Antley said while also emphasizing there's "no reason to believe there's an active threat in the Churchill Heights community or City of Cayce".

Antley told CNN that around 3:45 p.m. on Monday, her family noticed the girl was missing.

Police were called around 5 p.m. It prompted nationwide attention while hundreds of investigators and officers carried out a search. By Tuesday, more than 250 were searching and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was assisting.
