BOONE, NC (WCSC) - Friends and family have said their final farewell to a Mt. Pleasant woman who died at the hands of her fiancé earlier this month.

A funeral was held Wednesday afternoon for 30-year-old Dara Watson. The service took place in her hometown of Boone, North Carolina.

Watson's body was found last Friday buried in a shallow grave in the Francis Marion National Forest.

Police say they found her fiancé's body in their home a week before they found her.

Investigators believe her fiancé, David Hedrick, shot and killed Watson and buried her before turning the gun on himself.
