Spartanburg County deputies used bolt cutters to force open a locked
box, which contained the body of a 2-month-old child that was being
driven around in his parents' truck.
Seventh Circuit Solicitor Barry Barnette told a judge that deputies initially could not find the
child in the vehicle, and that Chuck and Carissa McCullough pointed them
to the box. The baby, Noah Darrell Dennis McCullough, was not
breathing, Barnette said.
Toxicology tests are being performed on the child's body, and authorities are
waiting on those before determining whether any charges should be filed
in his death, Barnette said.
“We are obviously looking at additional charges,” the solicitor told Judge James Ashmore during a bond hearing Friday.
Chuck Edward McCullough, 34, of 169 Louisa St., Roebuck, and Carissa Charla
McCullough, 21, also of Roebuck, were charged Thursday with trafficking
methamphetamine after deputies searched the Louisa Street home the
couple appeared to be sharing. There, deputies found equipment used to
make meth, such as batteries and gas generators, as well as baby bottles
lying on the couch, Barnette said.
Later, while searching the truck in which the child was found, investigators
found 3.2 grams of meth and three ecstasy tablets, authorities said.
Both McCulloughs are now charged with possession of that drug and
possessing/ manufacturing meth, according to online jail records and authorities.
After Ashmore denied the couple's bond Friday, they asked about their child's funeral.
“What about our child?” Carissa McCullough said.
Ashmore told her arrangements would need to be worked out with someone on the
outside, and that she should talk to the jail director.
Carissa McCullough's other two children have been placed in
Department of Social Services custody.

A concerned caller

According to a
Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office incident report released Friday, a
man called 911 concerned about Noah McCullough, who was born Jan. 5. The
man reported that Chuck McCullough had called him saying that something
had happened to his baby and he couldn't come into work, the report states.
The man told authorities Chuck McCullough hung up the phone on him and wouldn't answer when he called again.
The man called deputies again and said he had received information that the
baby was dead, the report states. The person talking with McCullough
reportedly advised him to call an ambulance and the police, and
McCullough said he couldn't do that, according to the report.
Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said an autopsy was performed Thursday
afternoon, but the cause of the child's death has not been released.
Toxicology and other test results are pending.
It appeared the baby had been dead less than 24 hours, the coroner reported.
