Windsor Woman 4th Person Charged in Graniteville Man’s Death
The Aiken County Sheriff’s Office has made a fourth arrest in connection with the disappearance and murder of a Graniteville man earlier this month. The Windsor woman arrested was taken into custody on Friday.
The remains of 39-year-old John Belote were found in a shallow grave in the woods in the 300 block of Wendy Lane near Windsor on July 14. Coroner Darryl Ables said Belote died from multiple gunshot wounds.
Investigators say 57-year-old Suzanne Boozer of Windsor was taken into custody Friday. She was charged with Accessory after the Fact to Felony A, B C or Murder in connection with Belote’s death.
The arrest warrant accuses Boozer of helping to move Belote’s remains from one shallow grave to another, along with three others who are already in custody. Donald Britton, Thomas Guinn, and Cody Wooten, all of Windsor, are all being held without bond. Britton and Wooten have been charged with Accessory after the Fact for Murder. While Guinn has been charged with Murder and Possession of a Weapon During a Violent Crime. The search continues for Michael Dwayne Williams of Aiken. He is wanted on charges of Murder and Possession of a Weapon During a Violent Crime.
Belote’s daughter notified authorities that she hadn’t spoken to him since June 28, when he’d had an argument with Britton. Belote’s body was found on July 15.
