    Christina Parcell, 41, Found Dead In A Canebreak Home & Police Are Requesting Ring Vids/CCTV From Neighbours (Greer, SC)

    https://www.wyff4.com/article/dashca...orida/37947730

    A woman was found dead in the Canebreak neighborhood in Greer on Wednesday, according to the Greenville County Sheriff?s Office, prompting a message to parents from the principal at a nearby school.

    Lt. Ryan Flood said a woman was found dead in the home at about 11 a.m. by someone she knew.

    The manner and cause of death are unknown.

    Flood asked people who live in and around the neighborhood to check their surveillance systems, including RING doorbell cameras, between the time period of Wednesday between 6 to 11 a.m. for any suspicious person or suspicious vehicles.

    Anyone with information or relevant video footage should call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 23-CRIME, or 864-232-7463.

    Dave Burgess, the principal of Buena Vista Elementary School, which is across the street from the subdivision where the death occurred, sent a voice message to parents Wednesday saying the school went on lockout while deputies responded to the call.

    He said as soon as deputies determined there was no danger to the school, the lockout was lifted, Burgess said.

    "Unfortunately, today's serious incident involved the family of one of our students and will generate significant media coverage,? he said.

    Burgess asked parents to help protect the student by "being careful what you say and discuss in front of your child."

    Counselors would be available for any student or staff member who needs them, Burgess said.

    GREER, S.C. ?
    We are learning more about the Greer woman found dead in her home Wednesday.

    On Thursday, the coroner said Christina Larain Parcell, 41, died of multiple sharp force injuries.

    Parcell was found dead in a home in the Canebrake neighborhood after someone who knew her called 911, said Lt. Ryan Flood, with the Greenville County Sheriff's Office.

    The coroner's office called the death suspicious.

    Investigators said they believe Parcell's death is an isolated incident.

    As of Friday morning, no arrests have been made and no suspect has been named.

    The Foothills Veterinary Hospital said Parcell worked at the clinic in Greenville. The following post was made on Facebook:

    "It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we inform you of the death of our colleague and friend, Christina Parcell, who was taken from us on Oct. 13. We will all miss her more than words can express. She was not just our co-worker but our dear friend as well. We will share with you the details regarding a memorial fund in the days to come. Please keep Christina?s family in your prayers. We also ask that you keep our Foothills family in your prayers during this difficult time."

    Parcell's boss says she worked at the clinic for three years.

    "She's definitely going to be missed. Everybody's just kind of feeling I think a little empty," Dr. Dan Randall, of Foothills Veterinary Hospital, said.

    Randall says they're still trying to wrap their heads around what happened.

    "She was just fun to be around and somebody you would enjoy talking to," he said.

    He describes her as intelligent, capable and witty, saying her talent a presence at the clinic will be unmatched.

    "We'll miss her expertise for sure, but I think, more than anything, over the three years she worked here, she just made a lot of friends and I think people are mostly going to miss her friendship and just miss her presence around the office," Randall said.

    More importantly, Randall says Parcell was a devoted mother to her young daughter.

    "There were a couple of times where I got to be around her and her daughter together," he said. "Her daughter was such a bright light and a kind spirit."

    Randall looks back on many fond memories he has of Parcell, sharing one in particular.

    ?I do remember after that particular kickball game the other year when she was the only one out there playing in business casual," Randall said. "It was raining, she was soaking wet, barefoot and came up after the game and gave me a little side hug and said, ?You know you you?re pretty special to me if I get out here in the rain and play kickball in my dress clothes, so you owe me one.??

    Randall says Parcell was appreciated around the clinic as a co-worker and friend.

    "I think I would be more intentional just about saying thank you for everything she did for us," he said.

    Parcell also worked with the Carolina Loving Hound Rescue. The organization posted the following on Facebook:

    "I am asking for all of you to please keep Christina's Family, specifically her young daughter in your prayers. Christina was murdered yesterday and the assailant/s are still at large. I honestly sat here these last 14 hours trying to figure out how to wrap my head around this. Christina was not only one of the most epic Vet Techs to our dogs but she was a friend. With a personality the size of a High Rise and always trying to make everyone else feel better. I can't tell you how many times she walked me to my car after an appointment and had me crying from laughing so hard. The dogs loved her and she did such an incredible job with them. When you are at the clinic as much as we are you form friendships with some of the people that work on your dogs., It is hard not to, Christina was one of them. She always had an ear and always tried to make you smile even in the worst of situations. We are absolutely devastated by this senseless crime as there is a beautiful little girl whos life has forever been changed. Thank you and we appreciate any good vibes and prayers for her family! Christina we will have that bottle of wine when we see each other again!"

    The sheriff's office is asking people who live in and around the neighborhood to check their surveillance systems, including doorbell cameras, between 6 and 11 a.m. Wednesday for any suspicious person or suspicious vehicles.

    He said they don't think there was a forced entry into the home.

    ?It?s imperative for the community to come forward with information," Flood said. "Whether it?s surveillance footage or whether that?s just information related to the crime in and of itself. We need the community to come forward.?

    Anyone with information or relevant video footage should call Crime Stoppers of Greenville at 864-232-7463.

    Christina Larain Parcell (41) was allegedly stabbed to death by concert pianist Zachary David Hughes (29)

    This is another bizarre case.

    https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/crime...id=mailsignout

    Law enforcement authorities in South Carolina arrested a concert pianist in connection with the brutal murder of a woman who was viciously stabbed in her home last month last month.

    Greenville County Sheriff Hobart Lewis announced that deputies had taken 29-year-old Zachary David Hughes into custody and charged him with the Oct. 13 murder of Christina Larain Parcell, a 41-year-old veterinary hospital worker. Hughes was also charged with one count of possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

    In describing the crime scene to reporters during Thursday?s press conference, Lewis said that Parcell was ?murdered in a very violent way.?

    ?It was a very brutal crime scene, for sure,? he added.

    Those who knew Parcell said she was friend with a wonderful sense of humor who had a love for animals. Parcell was also the mother of a young daughter.

    The Greenville Sheriff?s Office dispatched deputies to Parcell?s home located at 122 Cane Brake Drive in Greer at approximately 11 a.m. on Oct. 13. Lewis said that ?a person familiar with? Parcell found her deceased in her apartment. Investigators rushed to the scene where they discovered Parcell had been ?brutally stabbed multiple times.?

    An autopsy conducted by the Greenville County Coroner?s Office determined that Parcell?s death was a homicide caused by ?multiple sharp force injuries.?

    Over the course of several days, investigators conducted interviews, gathered evidence, and obtained surveillance footage and developed a lead in the case that made Hughes the main suspect in the murder. Lewis said surveillance camera footage and physical evidence that was found at the scene of the crime connected Hughes to the killing.

    After a warrant was issued for his arrest, Hughes turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday.

    Lewis said that investigators are currently unaware of any existing relationship between Hughes and Parcell prior to her murder, but noted that detectives believe she was specifically targeted in the attack.

    ?Whether or not they knew each other at all is still unclear,? Lewis said.

    Lewis also said it ?doesn?t look like he has any criminal history.?

    Noting that the investigation was still ongoing, Sheriff Lewis said that it is still possible that others were involved in Parcell?s death, though he said Hughes ?is our guy? concerning the actual stabbing.

    Hughes was processed and is currently being held at the Greenville County Detention Center.

    On his professional website, Hughes, a graduate of The Juilliard School in New York City, says he was homeschooled as a child and loved J.R.R. Tolkien?s The Lord of the Rings books.

    In an unusual twist, Parcell was reportedly listed on a marriage application with Bradly Eugene Post, which was issued this year after being filed in June. Post was arrested on Oct. 19 and charged with five counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor after investigators said they had evidence he had produced child sexual abuse material on at least five separate occasions. Lt. Ryan Flood of the Greenville Sheriff?s Office said Post?s arrest, which occurred less than a week after Parcell?s murder, was the result of an investigation unrelated to the killing.

    I'm guessing they searched his computer because they thought he was a suspect, and then found child porn?

    It says they found the porn during an investigation unrelated to this case, so IDK. The whole thing is really odd.

    He comes off extremely arrogant. In every photo. Also, completely obsessed with Beethoven. Like, dude. Try some Chopin or Dvorak for a change every once in a while.

    https://www.oxygen.com/crime-news/ju...bbing-vet-tech

    From the article:

    "Just one week after Parcell was killed in her home, her fianc? 65-year-old Bradly Eugene Post was arrested and charged with multiple counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, according to local station WHNS.

    John Mello, another man who shared a child with Parcell, also turned himself into authorities that same day on child custody charges, WSPA reports."

    Along with the child pornography found, this is starting to sound like maybe the killer was involved in a child porn/abuse ring of some kind of which her fiance and ex were members, and maybe she found out or was going to blow the whistle? Even more plausible with the killer bieng an FB friend of the ex. Her own child may have been involved in the abuse and the murder may have been to silence her. Going to be interesting how this unfolds as more info comes out.

    I have been busy lately and haven't had time to check, but I just saw that there was a post needing moderation from last week and approved it. I am bumping so that it is seen since it took so long.

    Mephistopheles, welcome to MDS!
