2 bodies found at Rivers Bridge State Park identified

January 7, 2019

BAMBERG, S.C. (AP) — Officials in South Carolina say two bodies found at a state park have been identified as two people reported missing several weeks ago.

Bamberg County Coroner Billy Duncan tells the Times and Democrat of Orangeburg that the bodies have been positively identified as 35-year-old Janis Quintero Natos and 38-year-old Jamell Reggie Carter. Duncan says the cause of their deaths hasn’t yet been determined because of decomposition.

The two were found at the Rivers Bridge State Park on Friday morning. The newspaper says they had left their home Dec. 12.

S.C. Law Enforcement Division spokesman Thom Berry says agents were called to the state park Friday because the agency is investigating the disappearance of Natos and Carter.
