Faye Swetlik brought home, autopsy results Tuesday

Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has confirmed that the autopsy of Faye Marie Swetlik was completed Saturday.

The preliminary results of that autopsy are not being released at this time out of respect for Faye’s family. They need privacy and time to process the information. The findings regarding Faye’s autopsy will be released at a press conference to be held by Fisher and the Cayce Department of Public Safety on Tuesday.

Information regarding the time and location of that press conference will be released at a later time.

The preliminary findings of the other autopsy conducted on Saturday (presumably the autopsy of Coty Scott Taylor who was also found dead Thursday)  will also be released at that time. Evidence links Taylor to Faye, said Sgt. Evan Antley at a press conference Friday. 

Fisher announced earlier Saturday the body of Swetlik was escorted back to Lexington County Saturday by an official motorcade.

Faye was taken to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston for an autopsy.

Faye’s body was brought back to for a funeral, and the Charleston County Sheriff’s Department provided an escort, Fisher said in a news release.

The motorcade left Charleston at noon and took Interstate 26 to Exit 113, getting off the highway at Airport Boulevard, according to the release.

From there, the motorcade continued along the Columbia Airport Expressway, Platt Springs Road, and North Lake Drive before arriving at Caughman-Harman Funeral Home in Lexington, Fisher said
