First-responders, including investigators with the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office and personnel with FirstHealth EMS and Richmond County Rescue Squad, responded to a home at 127 Macs Lane. The call for help was reported at approximately 2:36 p.m.

The single-story brick home is located 1.4 miles west of Sandhill Road off Hamer Mill Road.

Investigators in what appeared to be white hazardous material protective suits, including masks, exited the home with multiple large brown bags.

Law enforcement response included at least two marked sheriff’s office vehicles and at least three unmarked vehicles.

The home is owned by Mabel McCain, who has a Washington D.C. address. The home was lived in by Pastor Christine McCain, of Ellerbe Grove Missionary Baptist Church, and her husband, Johnny McCain. The church is located about 1 mile from the home.

    This is not what it seems. This is a private family matter and it is absolutely disgraceful that you would use Miss Mabel’s name. The family is already heartbroken over this private tragedy, the last thing they need is to read a story like this filled with lies and speculation. Turns my stomach

      Thank you Pee Dee Post for keeping the residents of Richmond County informed of the latest news, as it becomes available to you.

      It is a tragedy, but not sure about the Pee Dee Post reporting lies. They only give the owners name,nothing negative about her.

    when a person is killed from a gunshot wound it is not a personal matter. I respect their loss and prayers to them but people being shot is a crime against society not a private family matter.

      My thoughts exactly Raven Gordon

    • GAYLE

      What if it was your son or daughter ? Would it be personal then I wonder????

      • Raven Gordon

        My daughter was murdered and it was in the papers… any more questions?

  • GAYLE

    You see this bugs me to no end!!!! Stop reporting so fast, #1: family?y needs to know first NO EXCEPTIONS! #2: You don’t even have the whole story!!! Somebody’s loved one died!!! What don’t you get about personal privacy in these matters!!! SMH

    • Penny

      I am sure that law enforcement notified immediate family members first. When it is a crime, the public has the right to be informed.

      • Someone who doesnt know

        KUDO’S! GOOD JOB PEEDEE POST! I know that not all news is good news but you report all news with dignity and respect. Keep up the good work.

      What was written that was “personal”? Everything in the article is easily attained through public records, which no doubt is where the Post got their information.

      Right of society to know when there is a crime in there community… Taking a life is a crime against society and they should know…

  • Someone Who Knows

    Suicide, not murder. Private familly matter that doesnt need to be spread all across the internet. Now do you understand???

    • Penny

      Sad, that someone would feel that life is not worth living. The peel dee post stated that they had been a shooting, not that someone had died. What concerns me is that this happen between a pastor and her husband If they were serving God , as they proclaimed, it would have came down to one of God’s children taking their own life.
