the Bodies have been identified as 14-year-old Mary Crocker, who was last seen alive in november, and her older brother Elwyn Crocker, Jr., that also was 14 years old when he disappeared in 2016.
- I have been in this industry for 41 years, and a little while ago I broke down in tears, said the police commissioner in Effingham County Jimmy McDuffie, on Friday at a press conference in connection with the arrests.
- So bad is it. I can't understand how you can do it from the children. It's horrible, he continues.
this confirmed the police in addition, a third child, after the discovery of the two corpses have been removed from the home.
the Children's father, 50-year-old Elwyn Crocker, Sr., his 33-year-old wife, Candice Crocker, and her mother, Kim Wright of 50 years, have all been arrested and charged with child abuse and to hide the death of a child. His girlfriend, 55-year-old Roy Anthony Prater is also arrested and charged with the same offence in addition to a charge for possession of drugs.

It was a tip, that got the police to seek out Elwyn Crocker Sr, which, until recently, worked as a santa claus in a local Walmart supermarket in his home. Here he ended up even to lead the officers to the two children's graves in the backyard.
Neither Mary Crocker or Elwyn Crocker, Jr. Has officially been reported missing, and the cause of death remains unclear. It is expected, according to the police, to take some time before the cause of death can be established, particularly in the boy's case, since he has been dead for two years.
The biggest question, as some of us are asking, how the little boy could be gone in two years without any reported it, said Gena Sullivan, spokeswoman for the local police.
Investigators are now trying to unravel the mystery at the same time looking after the children's mother, who is supposed to live as homeless in South Carolina.
