BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) -- The murders of Dana Woods and June Guerry have hit close to home for many in the tight knit community… And they all want the same thing… justice.
Linda Wright owns a beauty shop in Moncks Corner and feels a personal connection to the case.

The family of Dana Woods will receive family and friends at the Dial Murray Funeral Home in Moncks Corner from 6 to 8 Friday. A funeral service is planned for 1:00 PM Saturday at the funeral home chapel.
Funeral plans have not been released yet for June Guerry.
