Authorities find 3 bodies inside South Carolina home


SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) – Authorities are investigating the deaths of three people whose bodies were found inside a South Carolina home.

Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger described the deaths as violent in nature, but provided no further details in a statement released on Saturday.

The Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said the bodies were found after deputies went to a home around 6 a.m. on Saturday.

Clevenger identified two of the victims as 23-year-old Nathan Louis Poffenberger and 59-year-old Francis Delancey Richards. He identified the third victim as Fred Richards, but family members couldn’t provide an age. All three are from Landrum.

Deputies asked the public to call in tips and say they don’t know if this was an isolated incident.
