York County deputies are investigating after three people were found dead Wednesday in a home near Clover.
The bodies were found at 331 Griggs Road east of Clover, said Trent Faris, spokesman for the York County Sheriff’s Office.
Two were female and one was male, Faris said. The male, younger than the other two, appears to have died from an apparent suicide. The cause and manner of death for the two women remains under investigation.
It is also unclear how long the bodies have been there, Faris said.
“Right now we are trying to determine how long the bodies have been in place and what happened,” Faris said.
Deputies were called by S.C. Department of Social Services to assist with a well-being check at the home Wednesday two weeks after the last well-being check on older adults in the house July 16, Faris said.
Initial reports were one body was found. Deputies then searched the home and found the bodies of the two women, Faris said.
Detectives have not said foul play is involved in the other deaths.
York County Coroner’s Office officials have not identified the deceased. Technicians were on scene from the coroner’s office Wednesday afternoon.
“The coroner is working to determine the causes of death and the timelines,” Faris said.
All three people have a connection to the home, Faris said, but officials have not said who lived at the house.
