The Colleton County Coroner’s Office identified the skeletal remains found in the woods Friday. Colleton County Coroner Rich Harvey confirmed that the remains of 36-year-old Andrea Stone of Dorchester County were found in some rural Colleton County woods last week. Although Harvey could not give her cause of death, investigators are looking into a possible homicide.
Stone disappeared in May after she was accused of stealing more than $134,000 from her former employer, Auto Money Title Loans in Summerville. In June, Dorchester County issued a warrant for her arrest and charged her with Breach of Trust and forgery after reportedly finding 63 incidents of the crimes at her former job.
