CAMDEN, Ala. (AP) — A district attorney says the bodies of five children missing from South Carolina have been found in rural Alabama. He says the father is being held in Mississippi.
Wilcox County, Alabama, District Attorney Michael Jackson told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the father is suspected of killing the five children in South Carolina and dumping the bodies in Alabama. The father has not been identified.
Jackson said all charges will be filed in South Carolina and the children’s bodies will be taken back to that state.
Authorities from the Lexington County, S.C., Sheriff’s Department said in a news release that the man had been detained in an unidentified state Saturday on charges unrelated to the missing children.
