Kelly said said deputies arrived at a home on Perch Street after receiving a call around 10 a.m. and found the three victims: McDonald, 44, Michael Frazier, 30 and his daughter, Heaven.

The Greenwood County Coroner’s Office identified the two adult victims while Adaia Brown, the mother of the 8-year-old deceased child, spoke with the media at the scene.

According to Coroner Sonny Cox, all three victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

Kelly said there was no history of calls out to the home where the bodies were found.

Cox said autopsies confirmed McDonald and Heaven’s deaths were homicides and Frazier’s death was a suicide.

McDonald’s sister-in-law Tiffany McDonald Bledsoe told FOX Carolina that the sudden, tragic loss has left the family in a state of shock.

“Dawn was so giving. She loved her friends and family deeply.  She had suffered many heartaches in her life yet she always remained strong and kept a smile on her face. She will be missed by many. Dawn was so precious to me. So sincere always. We are just in shock,” she said.
