MOUNT PLEASANT, S. C. – Officials in South Carolina have released the names of the four people who investigators think were killed by a family member in a house in the weekend.
The Charleston County Coroner’s Office told local news media on Sunday that the victims were 72-year-old Joseph Manigault; 69-year-old Rose Manigault; 42-year-old Kenya Manigault, and 15-year-old Faith Manigault. The official cause of death is pending for all four victims. They were found dead in a house in Mount Pleasant on Saturday morning.
Twenty-two-year-old Lovequawn Matthew Shaire Scott is charged with four murders. Scott declined to make an appearance for a Charleston County magistrate Sunday.
Family members said the victims were the grandparents who raised Scott, an aunt and a cousin.
The researchers still have not released a possible motive for the death.
