Byron Snellgrove of the Cayce Department of Public Safety along with Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher and Sgt. Evan Antley notified the public Thursday at 2 p.m. that the body of 6-year-old Faye Swetlik has been found.
“It is with extremely heavy hearts that we tell you the body of Faye Marie Swetlik has been found and identified by Coroner Margaret Fisher,” said Snellgrove. He informed the public that the body of a male has also been found in the Churchill Heights neighborhood in Cayce. There was no elaboration on any details of the male who was discovered.
