EDISTO ISLAND, SC — Authorities are investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were found in an Edisto Island hot tub.
Police Chief Bill Coffey says his officers were called just before 9 a.m. Friday.
They found 80-year-old Ruth Elizabeth Ellis of Michigan, and her friend, 78-year-old Raymond Trewhella of Columbia, dead in a hot tub.
Authorities say Ellis and Trewhella, a former CEO and chairman of the board of Glassmaster of Lexington County, were in town for a wedding.
Autopsies are being performed to determine how the pair died, but Coffey says the deaths aren't considered suspicious.
