Police: No charges will be filed after woman was murdered near Palmetto Point Boulevard


The Horry County Police Department says the woman who was found dead in a wooded area near Palmetto Pointe Boulevard on June 30th was murdered, but no one will be charged.

Investigators say William Sneeringer of Myrtle Beach is believed to have killed Jennifer Dawn Fitchett and disposed of her body in the wooded area, according to Captain John Harrelson.

But the Horry County Police Department can't formally charge Sneeringer as he is recently deceased, Harrelson said.

"While we believe we have identified the person primarily responsible for her death, the investigation continues to have as complete a picture as possible of the circumstances that lead to Jennifer’s death," he said.
