WARRENVILLE, SC (WFXG) -

UPDATE: The man and woman found Thursday morning into a home on Jackson Street in Warrenville have been identified as sixty-six-year-old William Howard Boyd and forty-seven-year-old Sheryl B. Stone. The deaths are now being called a murder/suicide.

According to Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton, Stone was shot to death and may have been dead inside the home for up to ten days before Boyd's death. In a note found at the scene, Boyd admits to killing her. At this time, it's believed Boyd died of an overdose. His toxicology and other specimens have been sent to SLED for analysis.

Neighbors tell FOX 54 that Boyd and Stone were a couple and would often argue publicly outside the home.


UPDATE: Aiken County Coroner Tim Carlton says the people found inside the Jackson Street home cannot be identified at this time due to "significant decomposition" of the bodies.

Carlton says the bodies may have been in the home for days or weeks. Autopsies are scheduled in Newberry, SC.


ORIGINAL STORY: The Aiken County Sheriff's Office is investigating the deaths of two people found inside the home at 38 Jackson Street in Warrenville.

According to Sgt. Steve Shunn with the Sheriff's Office, a call came in at around 11:38 a.m. Thursday for a well-being check at the home. A volunteer firefighter was the first person on the scene. He called the Aiken County Sheriff's Office and deputies forced their way into the home. Inside, they found two bodies.

The Aiken County Coroner's Office and Sheriff's Office are investigating. Sgt. Shunn tells FOX 54 that the investigation is still in its early stages and at this time, the deaths are not being treated as a murder-suicide.
