South Carolina Man Behind Bars After His Roommate’s Body is Discovered

A South Carolina man has been accused of murder after his roommate’s burned body was found in a barrel.

23-year-old Shannon Smith has been charged with the death of 68-year-old Michael Mullikin after investigators used DNA to identify his body. Last month, Millkin’s daughter called police to report him missing after his car was missing from his home. When officers arrived, they found Mullikin’s body in a barrel in the backyard.
