Community rallies around families of Berkeley County murder victims

MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCIV) -- The community has promised to continue fundraising for the families of the murdered women.{}

A car wash was held Monday in Moncks Corner just two days after two arrests were made in the murders of 18-year-old Dana Marie Woods and 22-year-old June Guerry.{}

Caleb Matlock and Arthur Chavis are accused of shooting both women and leaving their bodies in the national forest last week.{}

The two men are said to be cousins.{}

A friend of Dana's mother says she's trying to make sense of it all.{}

"She's at home trying to heal trying to find answers where there are none," Stephanie Lewis said.{}{}

This was the third fundraiser that the community has put on since their murders.{}{}

"The support has just been amazing and we just appreciate every body coming out and helping," Lewis said.{}{}

The fundraiser will help cover funeral expenses for both families. Organizers say people came out from all over the Lowcountry.{}

"I just felt heartfelt for the family. It could happen to anybody so I felt the need to come out and support them. It's really sad," Cathy Mills said.{}

Investigators have still{}not released a motive for the murders.{}{}
