Homicide ruled in deaths of 2 people whose bodies found stuffed in barrels in SC lake

A coroner has ruled that homicide is the cause of death of two people whose bodies were found stuffed in barrels in a South Carolina lake.

Anderson County Coroner Greg Shore on Friday didn't release exactly how 37-year-old Andrea Mitchell and 52-year-old Tony McGinnis died.

Mitchell's body was found Wednesday in a plastic barrel that was partially submerged in Lake Hartwell. Deputies returned to the lake Thursday and found McGinnis' dismembered body in a metal barrel about 10 feet below the water's surface.

No arrests have been made. Authorities say a chain saw and machetes were removed from a home in the area during a search.

The coroner says Mitchell was killed about a month ago, and McGinnis had likely been dead even longer.
