MYRTLE BEACH (WMBF) - Around 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Myrtle Beach Police were called to a suspicious scene at 16th Avenue South and Yaupon Drive.
Ronald Powell lives just steps from where the animals were found. Powell said his roommate's son and a friend were playing football in the field when they noticed a very bad smell. Powell said they began to look for a smell and found a gruesome sight, a box with hooves, and fur seemingly from a goat.
When Myrtle Beach Police arrived on the scene, they confiscated the boxes. According to the police report, one box contained the bottom half of a goat's body and the other, appeared to have chicken feathers and animal parts inside.
Two room keys from the Sea Mist hotel were also found at the scene.
Police spoke to the hotel staff and learned the suspects were evicted from the hotel after telling security the goat, a rooster and chickens in their room were for a "sacrificial thanksgiving feast".
Housekeeping at Sea Mist put in a request for the suspects deposit to be kept because of the dirt, damage and smell they left behind in the room.
The suspects have been banned from the hotel and the room has been taken off the rental list.
Officer Eddy of the Myrtle Beach Police Department checked with other hotels in the area and found the suspects stayed at Days Inn located at 1403 South Ocean Boulevard from Nov. 28 through Dec. 4.
Police were able to get information from both hotels on the suspects such as driver's license numbers and vehicle plates.
Though the names of the suspects have not been released, it was noted in the police report that one of the suspects has a bench warrant for failure to appear in court.>
Officials went to the other suspect's listed address but neighbors said he had moved.
Three weeks ago, a similar incident happened only one block away on 17th Avenue South and Yaupon Drive. A goat's body, the head of a rooster along and a bloody knife were found inside a plastic bag.
Myrtle Beach Police Captain David Knipes said the two incidences are most likely related, and at this time they may not be a crime. Capt. Knipes said if the decapitation of the animals was a religious act, police may not treat it as a crime. But, at this time, police are still looking for the suspects to question them further about the incidences.
This case is still being investigated and we will update you with more information as it becomes available.
