On May 22, authorities responded to a call saying that a “smell of death” was emanating from Caroline Dawn Pennington’s home. Officials said all the animals—found in cages in their own waste—seemed to have been dead of starvation and dehydration for some time. Pennington was an employee at the Kershaw County Humane Society and director of non-profit animal rescue group GROWL.
