MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (WCIV) – When Nora Timberlake heard about the murders of Dana Woods and June Guerry, she was shocked. Her feelings drove her to rally for both families.
"When they found the bodies, it was just total devastation. Disbelief, because things like this don't happen in a small community," Timberlake said.
On Friday, Timberlake and two other women stood on Highway 52 washing cars and collecting money on behalf of the families.
"We don't know who this killer is. It could be one of our friends. We don't know," said Timberlake. "I just feel as a small community, we need to stand together to fight this, to catch this person before he could do it again to another child."
Blistered and drenched in sweat, Timberlake said her hard work was worth the heartache.
"All of us have kids. We're scared to let our kids out right now by themselves. That type of thing I think the community just needs to rally to support this family. Show that we are still a tight knit community."
For hours on end, Timberlake stayed the course until the sun went down.
"I can not believe the support from the community. We're here doing a car wash. We were standing out there with signs and people just dropping money in a bucket. You know, and it's just unbelievable."
