The Williamsburg County Coroner's Office said the three family members found dead near Hemingway were shot to death.
The victims, William Lawrimore, 44; Cynthia Lawrimore, 46; and Savannah Lawrimore, 5, were found at a home along East Lawrimore Road Friday morning, Deputy Coroner William Horton said.
The cause of death for all three was a gunshot wound, Horton said. However, he said he was waiting on findings from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division before making a final determination on the manner of death.
Investigators found two bodies were found inside the home and the third was found outside the home.
