Fallen Florence Co. deputy escorted from MUSC after autopsy

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Florence County deputy who died Monday night from her injuries sustained in the mass shooting there on Oct. 3 has been transported away from MUSC Tuesday afternoon after her autopsy.

Investigator Farrah Turner is the second law enforcement officer to pass away following the shooting, which also took the life of Florence police officer Terrence Carraway.

His body received the same treatment as it was taken to MUSC before returning to Florence, receiving an escort along the way.

Turner was one of seven officers shot in the line of duty earlier this month.

Governor Henry McMaster tweeted Monday that he was praying for her family and loved ones while also ordering all flags to half staff beginning Tuesday until her burial.

Earlier on Monday, Turner’s mom released a statement to inform the public that Turner had both of her legs amputated last week as a result of her injuries and that she was still in critical condition. Her mom thanked everyone for their prayers.

The sheriff says Turner was the ultimate professional, excelling at everything she did.

She’s one of seven law enforcement officers in Florence County who were ambushed at a home about three weeks ago. Florence County deputies were there to interview a man accused of sexually assaulting a child.

When they arrived authorities say the man’s father shot at them.

Sgt. Terrence Carraway with the Florence Police Department also died from the shooting after being called in to help get the deputies out of harm’s way.

He was also escorted from MUSC earlier this month.

The Florence County Sheriff’s Office announced that Turner’s funeral will be on Sunday at noon at the Florence Center.
