WARRENVILLE, S.C. (WRDW)—A man accused of killing a woman on Pine Street in Warrenville back in March had his request for bond denied today.
Todd Brown is charged with murder in the death of Lacey Parker. For the first time since the murder, Parker’s family is talking to News 12 about their experiences since her death.
"I first saw it on Facebook; her kids were posting about it,” said Crystal Derrick, the aunt of two of Parker’s children, “I didn't believe it, it’s still hard to believe.”
But the death of Parker isn’t the only curious case surrounding that currently surrounds Todd Brown. Currently, the sheriff’s office says that Brown is a person of interest in the disappearance of Angel Phelps. Phelps went missing in 2011 but deputies say she does not have any medical conditions and is usually known to hang out in the Warrenville area.
“Our greatest hope is that she’s found safe and that she can return to her family unharmed,” said Aiken County Sheriff’s office Captain Eric Abdullah.
Investigators say that Phelps also has no driver’s license or vehicle to get around. But deputies say that Brown is still only a person of interest and not a suspect at this point. As the investigation continues into Parker’s death, investigators say they hope to turn over clues to Phelps disappearance as well.
“He needs to rot in jail,” said Derrick, “I hope he burns in hell.”
