2 suspects in Socastee burned car murder case plead guilty

"Audio from the 911 call made after the bodies were found was released in October. “There is a vehicle that has been burnt and it looks to be two dead bodies in it,” the caller told a 911 dispatcher.

Horry County Deputy Coroner Michelle McSpadden says the first victim identified is 35-year-old Shawn David Anderson, originally of Laurens, South Carolina. On August 16, McSpadden said her office received DNA confirmation that 29-year-old Matthew Autry, originally from Kershaw but living in Myrtle Beach, was the second victim burned in July.

William David Tatum, 37, and Zackary Kane Stell were also charged with murder and arson in the case. Jeret Cox was also arrested in the case in August."
