- 1988: Two Bishopville brothers are arrested by Clemson city police and charged with murder and arson in connection with fires set May 30 that killed a Clemson graduate student. Alaric Wayne Hunt, 18, and Jason Hugh Dinalt Hunt, 19, each are charged with one count of murder and one count of first-degree arson after a fire at a Forest Hills apartment building took the life of Joyce Austin, a graduate student majoring in Food Science. The brothers have also been charged with first-degree arson in connection with a nearly simultaneous blaze at Calhoun Mansion. Damage to the mansion was limited to the building's parlor and two exterior walls by automatic sprinklers. Clemson city police believe the fires were intentionally set to divert attention from a burglary at Clemson Jewelers, during which three boxes of rings were taken. City Police Chief Johnson Link said the arrests came as a result of a tip received by authorities from an undisclosed source.
