Dana Woods, 18, and June Guerry, 22, were last seen by family members late Sunday night. Soon after a search began early in the week, Woods' car was found burnt in the Francis Marion National Forest.

Investigators processing the car found Woods body nearby. An autopsy determined she had died from gunshot wounds. Guerry's body was later found, 10 miles from the scene in Alvin. She was also dead from gunshot wounds, according to Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury.

The comfort to the families and prayers to them for their loss. This is what evil looks like today within our communities, young adults gone bad because we have somehow lowered the Moral code that our Grandparents use to teach us. We have lost our moral compass for the sake of what ? "tolerance" "acceptance of that which is immoral", society is paying a large price for our so-called "diversity" . but there is "Danger " in Diversity. What has the churches and their Pastors/Ministers done to teach the people the need for "repentence" & the need to get back on that Narrow path to life we use to follow some years ago . The family values have changed in todays world for the worse, we have more single parent homes than is needed , because either the man or woman have lost their fear of the Lord and went the way of the movement and diversity concerning women and men in general.
