On Wednesday (April 17, 2024), the South Carolina State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) announced the arrest of three individuals in connection with a caucasian female found half-naked and “badly beaten” near a remote boat landing in Jasper County, South Carolina, earlier this month.

News of the gruesome discovery was first reported by this media outlet.

At approximately 2:57 p.m. EST on April 3, 2024, nearby homeowners watched as emergency responders flooded the terminus of Corner Lake Road — four miles east of Grays, S.C. — in reference to reports of an unresponsive person with their hands bound behind their back on the riverbank. 

According to SLED, investigators determined the woman was kidnapped in Barnwell County within hours of her beating and a presumed sexual assault. She was thereafter discarded at the remote boat ramp next to the Coosawhatchie River – purportedly zip-tied at her hands and ankles.

Two of the suspect names sounded female. Was this a gurl-on-gurl sexual assault?
