When he entered the room, he found the women's bodies. Futch said they do not know how long the bodies had been in the room, but the women had been shot to death by an unknown assailant.
Futch told 7 On Your Side that there was no apparent sign of a struggle inside the room and investigators were collecting evidence. He added that the women are from Greenwood County and they are working to notify their families.
