GREENVILLE COUNTY, S.C. (WSPA) – The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office charged a woman in her father’s death after his body was found inside of a container in a vacant house back in February.
We reported earlier that deputies responded at about 8:30 p.m. on Feb. 17 to a home in the 700 block of Table Rock Road following a report of a body found.
When officers arrived on scene, they found the man’s body.
Senior Deputy Coroner Kent Dill identified the man as Mark Dewey Bailey, 67, of Travelers Rest.
On Tuesday, the coroner’s office said Bailey was found dead inside a container in the home.
“Autopsy results showed that Mr. Bailey died as a result of blunt force trauma in the setting of healthcare neglect. The manner of death is homicide,” Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans said.
The coroner’s office said earlier that they believed Bailey died at his home on Geer Highway and was then moved to the home on Table Rock Road after his death.
The sheriff’s office said they arrested Noelle Elizabeth Bailey, 30, of Travelers Rest, earlier Tuesday morning.
According to the release, Noelle Bailey was charged with murder and desecration of human remains after investigators found that she allegedly killed her father on Feb. 5 by causing blunt force trauma in the setting of medical neglect.
Sheriff’s Office officials said Noelle Bailey is also accused of placing her father’s body inside of a plastic storage container in an attempt to cover up the crime.
She was taken to the Greenville County Detention Center, where she currently awaits a bond hearing.
