The family has not been officially identified but Richland County property records show the Millers owned the house. Friends also identified the dead as the Miller family.
The children's grandmother went to check on the young family after she hadn't heard from her son for a number of days, Wilson said. She immediately called police after discovering them dead.
According to property records, the Millers bought the lovely home in the Riverwalk neighborhood in 2012. Wilson said the forensic team were trying to determine when the four were killed.
Bible study: A friend of the family, Rachel Hinson, 25, described them as a good family and said she had attended bible study at the home
Grim scene: The man's mother came across the grisly scene when she hadn't heard from her son for a number of days and went to check on the family, police said
Family friend Rachel Hinson, 25, described them as a good family and said the children were both under the age of five.
She told the Observer she had attended bible study at the Millers' home and went to Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses with them. 'It's confusing, and it's not understandable why something like that would happen,' said Hinson, who's grandmother lives near the home. South Carolina is the worst of all 50 states when it comes to domestic homicides, according to a report by the Violence Policy Center in Washington.
