Aiken County, SC (WJBF) – The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office is working to clear up some information posted online alleging that a man and woman who have been arrested are connected with the murder of an elderly Jackson, South Carolina.

The couple have been identified as 74-year-old Louis “Baker” Cochran, and his wife, 70-year-old Sandra Cochran. They were found dead at their Green Pond Road home on Tuesday, December 8th.

A post on the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page claims that mug shot photos posted on a social media site of a man and a woman are not suspects in the murders, which happened on Green Pond Road.
