Investigators said 6-year-old Faye Marie Swetlik of Cayce was killed last week by Coty Scott Taylor, 30, a neighbour found dead after being interviewed by investigators following Faye's disappearance.

It appears that Taylor is the "sole perpetrator of this crime," Cayce Department of Public Safety director Byron Snellgrove said during a press conference Tuesday.

Autopsy results released Tuesday in the death of Faye, who was first reported missing eight days ago, show she died by asphyxiation, according to Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher.

An autopsy performed on Taylor over the weekend shows he died by suicide, Fisher said, according to Associated Press.

Investigators say Taylor killed Faye Swetlik hours after she was abducted from her yard on February 10.

Fisher said the autopsy determined the child's death was a homicide and did not occur at the location where her body was discovered. Fisher said Faye's body had been at that location only for a short time.

Faye was last seen playing in her yard around 3:45 pm February 10. She was reported missing to law enforcement around 5 pm, after her mother searched the neighbourhood and spoke with neighbours.

The report triggered a multi-agency search involving more than 300 law enforcement officers that spanned three days and centred on an area within about a mile of the first-grader's home.

Neighbor Found Dead in Home Abducted , ‘Asphyxiated’ 6-Year-Old Faye Swetlik : Police. Evidence shows that 6-year-old Faye Swetlik was strangled to death by her neighbor within hours of being abducted from her front yard in South Carolina last week, authorities revealed Tuesday.

CAYCE, S . C . – Authorities in South Carolina plan to release Tuesday details around the death of Faye Marie Swetlik , the 6-year-old Cayce girl who was found last week after she was reported missing days earlier. Faye was last seen playing in her yard last Monday night before her disappearance.

Between Monday and Wednesday nights, investigators conducted four perimeter searches of the neighbourhood and collected video footage from nearly 50 locations, Snellgrove said. Snellgrove said they discovered video that appeared to show Taylor "doing some things that are suspicious to us," but Snellgrove would not elaborate.

Law enforcement also knocked on every door of every home in the Churchill Heights neighbourhood where she lived, going back to each house until they'd interviewed every resident.

Investigators interviewed the man they ultimately determined was responsible for Faye's death. Taylor lived about 150 feet from Faye's home.

Snellgrove said Taylor was interviewed by investigators on Wednesday afternoon and was cooperative and gave them permission to search his home. Investigators did not find anything at the home that led them to believe he was connected to the case at that time, Snellgrove said.

Taylor does have a roommate, but there was no indication that the roommate was involved, Snellgrove said.

Fisher said evidence shows Faye was already dead at the time Taylor was interviewed.

Investigators believe Taylor killed Faye within hours of her abduction on February 10 and moved her body under the cover of darkness in the early morning hours of February 13.

Snellgrove found Faye's body around 10:30 am February 13 after investigators found a child's polka-dot boot and a soup ladle with freshly dug dirt in it during a search of neighbourhood trash cans.

The trash can in which the items were found was associated with Taylor's townhome.

After calling for assistance to conduct an additional search of the wooded area behind that home, Snellgrove found Faye's body nearby.

A funeral for Faye will be held Friday at 7 pm at Trinity Baptist Church in Cayce, according to an obituary shared by Caughman-Harman Funeral Home in Lexington.
