Authorities discovered the body of 60-year-old Joseph McKinnon lying in the yard of his home in Trenton, South Carolina, on Saturday.
In a shocking twist, police discovered a second body, identified as Patricia Dent, in a newly dug well next to McKinnon’s body.
Investigators say McKinnon strangled her girlfriend to death and placed her in the well just before she suffered a fatal cardiac event.
During their investigation, officers from the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office found a second body in a newly dug well.
Sheriff Jody Rowland said the body was identified as Patricia Dent, 65, McKinnon’s girlfriend, who lived with him.
Authorities said McKinnon had a “cardiac event” while he was covering the pit.

Investigators believe McKinnon attacked Dent inside the home after an autopsy report released Monday found that he died of strangulation.
“Mr. McKinnon then tied her up and wrapped her in garbage bags before putting her in the previously dug pit,” Sheriff Rowland states.
Dent’s death came as a surprise to her family, who did not see it coming.
“I am shocked. I didn’t see any of that coming,” Dent’s twin sister, Pamela Briggs, told Fox Carolina.
She says there were no signs of this happening.
“Everyone who ever knew her loved her. She was full of energy. She was 65 years old and working,” Briggs said.
Dent was supposed to be at work that day at Mount Vintage Golf Club, but she didn’t show up, call or respond to text messages, a golf course employee told officials.
“She wanted to know if she knew where my sister was, and I said, ‘No, I have no idea,’ and then it just kind of worked from there,” Briggs added.
Briggs said the loss of her sister has left “a huge part of her missing.”
“I would say a nightmare, and I want to wake up, and it’s a dream. I know it’s not. This is reality and life, and a big part of me is gone, and now I’m going to have to live with it.” the sister told Fox.
