According to the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office, on Tuesday, Sept. 20, deputies went to 7709 Neely Ferry Road because they received a missing persons report regarding Terry Ann Chermak and William Loyd Cagle, who goes by the first name Todd. At 9:20 a.m., Laurens County deputies reportedly located a body on the property, though the victim had not immediately been identified.
