ORANGEBURG, SC Family members told investigators that Isaiah Veazey moved from the nation’s capitol in May to live with his great aunt in Orangeburg.
Around 9 am Tuesday, a caller told Orangeburg County 911 dispatch that a woman had been stabbed multiple times. Isaiah Veazey, 25, was standing on the front porch of the house he now shared with his great aunt, 74-year-old Delores Dash, when deputies arrived, sheriff Leroy Ravenell said in a press release. He was still on the phone with 911.
Dash’s body was found in a bedroom, wrapped in bed sheets. She had been stabbed multiple times.
Ravenell said Veazey admitted stabbing his great aunt about an hour before calling 911. An investigation continues to determine why.
