Chermak’s body found, Cagle faces murder charge
Soon after a missing persons case was turned over to the Laurens County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday, investigators discovered a body at a residence on Neely Ferry Road.
Around 7 p.m., the LCSO announced that William Loyd “Todd” Cagle, 48, had been arrested in Colorado with the help of the U.S. Marshals Service and charged with murder.
Greenville Police and other Upstate Law Enforcement agencies across the Upstate had been investigating the disappearance of Cagle and his fiance, Terry Ann Chermak since Chermak was last seen in Greenville on Sept. 8.
The Laurens County Coroner’s Office confirmed Wednesday that the body discovered at the residence was Charmak. Chief Deputy Coroner Patti Canupp said Chernak had been shot and suffered a single bullet wound. The results of an autopsy performed Wednesday morning were pending.
While in custody in Colorado, Cagle will be awaiting extradition back to Laurens County.
According to information gathered from several social media posts, Cagle and Chermak had known one another since high school and had been a couple since 2008.
