The Horry County Coroner’s Office has confirmed that the skeleton remains found in Bucksville are those of missing Conway couple Linda McAllister, 64, and William Clemons, 45.
Horry County police have charged 21-year-old Jordan Hodge and 28-year-old Kenneth Carlisle, both of Aynor, with the death of the missing Conway couple.
A bloody truck, possessing and using the victim’s banking information, and a final cellphone ping at the suspects’ home in Aynor are all listed as evidence that led to the murder charges for Carlisle and Hodge in connection with the disappearance of a missing Conway couple, according to arrest warrants.
The couple was reported missing July 1, according to the Conway Police Department. The couple was last seen in the area of Dewberry Street.
“… there is probable cause that the suspect committed the act of murder due to being the last known contact with victims, providing statements which differ from fact, being in possession of multiple banking mechanisms (with excessive use) and the victim’s truck, which was saturated in blood, and final phone ping of the victim’s phone in immediate vicinity of the suspect’s Aynor residence on July 13, 2017,” arrest warrants for both Carlisle and Hodge state.
Horry County police discovered the remains of the couple on July 15 after several people saying they smelled a “foul odor” led officers to discover skeletons in the woods in the Bucksville region of Horry County.
According to the report, three people smelled the odor at 3 a.m. but didn’t want to investigate the smell until morning. The trio discovered the skeletal remains around 6:15 a.m. and called police, who located the remains under a bush.
