The Hartsville Police Department did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

“Our city is a close-knit community, but more than that, it is a family,” Lauren Baker, spokeswoman for Hartsville Police Department, told the Times. “We are broken-hearted by this terrible news.”

Baker also told the outlet that the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division and the United States Marshals Service are assisting in the ongoing investigation.
