Deputies seek suspects after bodies found in burning truck

HICKORY GROVE, S.C. — Authorities say two men found dead in a burning truck in York County were slain in Cherokee County before the killers set the truck on fire.

Cherokee County Steve Mueller told the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg that his deputies have suspects they are trying to capture, but aren’t ready to release their names.

Someone called in a woods fire Friday morning, and when firefighters arrived they found the truck burning on a dirt logging road near Hickory Grove with the bodies inside.

Mueller says he does not want to release how the men were killed or any motive in their deaths. The coroner has not released the victims’ names.
