"In August 9, 1976, a young couple was found shot to death by a trucker on a remote road in Sumter, South Carolina. Their similar features made police believe that they may be related, possibly brother and sister, and they carried no identification. On August 9, a witness heard a car driving down a dirt road to where their bodies were later found. He heard gunshots, and then heard the car drive quickly back onto the highway. Investigators believe that they may have been well-to-do, or from another country. They may have been hitchhiking across the United States or were the victims of a carjacking. No drugs or alcohol were found in their bodies, nor were they wearing underwear or had any money. An autopsy revealed that they had eaten fruit or ice cream with that, and a witness reported seeing a couple matching their description at a local fruit stand. Months after the murder, an employee of a Santee, South Carolina campground claimed that he had met them weeks before their death. He said that the man's name was either "Jock" or "Jacques" and that he and his companion were going to Florida. They soon became friends. He later said that he was the son of a doctor in Canada, and that he and the woman were on vacation. Neither they nor their killers have ever been identified."
