A 60-year-old man identified as Joseph MacKinnon was found dead in his backyard in South Carolina, US.
According to local authorities, the man is believed to have died from a “cardiac event” while burying a woman he had strangled.
A Tuesday statement by a local media reported that County Sheriff Jody Rowland and County Coronar David Burnett said that the officials responded to the reports of an unresponsive man in Trenton and found the 60-year-old dead.
In the process of digging further into investigations about the next of kin, a second body was found buried in a freshly dug pit. It was identified to be that of Patricia Ruth Dent, sharing the same address as Joseph MacKinnon.
