    Online records show Irene Clodfelter, 74, was released from the Georgetown County Detention Center on a $100,000 bond at around 9:25 p.m. Monday. She was booked into JRLDC about an hour later. A bond hearing was held Tuesday afternoon, where an additional $150,000 bond for her Horry County charges was set.

    Just finished watching the video. Per the DA, Irene gave a post-miranda confession and admitted that she found Hubert deceased and wrapped him up in plastic and duct tape and put him in that location. The DA makes it clear however, that information discovered during the investigation indicates that Mr. Clodfelter did not lose his life by natural means.

    Woman charged in connection to missing man, human remains case in Horry County court
    [...]

    Chief Deputy Solicitor Scott Hixson said Clodfelter admitted to finding Hubert dead and then putting him in the bags his remains were found inside.

    [...]

    “I will never be able to have my father again,” one of the daughter’s said. ”I will never hear my dad say ‘I love you and God loves you.’”

    The daughters said Irene called their biological mother shortly before they started to look for Hubert. They described Irene as a “pathological liar.”

    The family asked the judge to deny bond and said they believe Irene has hidden enough money to flee the area.

    A magistrate set Irene’s bond at $150,000 for the two new charges. That is on top of a $100,000 bond in Georgetown County.

    @PommyMommy, thanks for finding the information about how long Hubert had been married, in addition to all the other information! I was really surprised that they had been married for 15 years--I would have guessed that it had been more recent. How horrible that the daughters were the ones that found their father! I certainly hope the coroner finds conclusive results for the trial.

    Then, to top off all of this horribleness, the link you gave (‘No ones deserves to rot’: Sisters detail discovering murdered father’s remains) had this quote:
    "The warrants reveal Irene confessed to the concealment and said her son, who is believed to have died months ago, was responsible."​
    So now Irene is blaming her dead son for the murder! I wonder how long ago her son died, and what the cause of Irene's son's death was.

    I can't begin to imagine the horror his daughters went through, finding their father like that!

    ‘No ones deserves to rot’: Sisters detail discovering murdered father’s remains
    [...]

    Irene Clodfelter told police she found Hubert’s remains under the beach house on May 28, according to arrest warrants. She placed his body in a plastic bag and taped it closed, officials said.

    The warrants reveal Irene confessed to the concealment and said her son, who is believed to have died months ago, was responsible. Irene Clodfelter continued to receive money from Hubert Clodfelter’s businesses to support her lifestyle, according to the warrants.

    Irene Clodfelter’s defense attorney John Hillard said they plan a vigorous defense in the case. They also will not help police further their investigation. The sisters believe Irene Clodfelter will continue to be untruthful, and Karen described her stepmother as a “pathological liar.”

    Warrants: Irene Clodfelter believes her son responsible for her husband's death
    [...]

    In warrants related to Irene's Horry County arrest released Tuesday afternoon, it's stated Irene found her dead husband under the beach house on or about May 28, 2019.

    "The defendant, believing that her son was responsible for this crime, attempted to conceal this crime by wrapping the victim's body in plastic and wrapping tape around the plastic," the warrant states. Charging documents say Irene left the victim underneath the porch.

    During the investigation into her husband's disappearance, the warrants allege "the defendant continued to receive money from the victim's businesses that she used to support her lifestyle."

    The warrant reads that Irene gave a post-Miranda confession to the concealment of the crime and desecration of the body.

    I'd love to know how her son died myself. Very interesting and how convenient for her.

    Just how does anyone live with a dead body underneath them in a garbage bag?

    Am I the only one on here that would probably be institutionalized if I ever did such a thing- it would literally haunt me, I'd never forgive myself, and just knowing a deceased person is underneath me day after day would cause me to go over the deep end. I am not joking, either, I am very serious.

    Why can't we sleuth him? She said he helped her. I only want to know his cause of death. I don't need any other details, just curious as to whether he had a true blue illness that he succumbed to or if something else occurred that might need to, er, be investigated.

    I understand because I want to know too! But, LE hasn't named him a POI or suspect. Maybe ask a mod to be sure? MOO

    I'll behave, LOL. It's hard, though, isn't it? I am sure LE is no doubt checking into it and will update if they think he was involved or not. Still.........

    I think we can sleuth as far as when he died because this information was in mainstream media? I'm going to alert this post to ask mods if we can perhaps discuss if there is any mainstream media report or perhaps in an obituary? So that the moderators can answer such.

    Probably a typo. The daughter's were clearly distraught, I believe they found the daughter. Also- the media- ugh! Many times they get details wrong today. Too busy being the first to break a story, they don't fact check or spell check these days.

    The daughters found Hubert's body in the "beach house in the Myrtle Beach Travel Park" according to one of @PommyMommy's informative links (‘No ones deserves to rot’: Sisters detail discovering murdered father’s remains). That location sounds like it was not Hubert's primary residence. But that doesn't excuse Irene for not being bothered by the death of her husband, whether or not she was involved (IMO she is not guiltless).

    I can't even touch a dead insect!

    Yeah, of course she is out on bond. Using the money that she got from all of his accounts and Social Security saying he was still alive all that time.
