Friends and family say good-bye Saturday to two women who investigators say were victims of murder in a South Carolina crime spree a week ago.

The funeral for Sadie Brown is Saturday morning in Clarendon County.  She was 81 years old when she was killed.

"I think speaking for the family that we do have a closure," said Brown's niece, Marry Harrison Cooper.

"I feel so disturbed and disturbed for the other families whose family member has been taken away by a violent crime," she said.

Services for 65-year-old Maybell White were Saturday afternoon in Manning. And services were also held in Charleston County Saturday for 37-year-old Crystal Johnson.

Police say all three women were murdered by 31-year-old Jeffrey Eady.

Brown, who was the cousin of Eady's father, was reported missing May 30th.  Her body was found Sunday in a wooded area not far from her home.

White was shot and killed Thursday evening at a recycling center on SC 527 in Clarendon County.

Johnson was shot during a robbery at the store where she worked in Charleston County within a few hours after White was killed. 

Eady was arrested Saturday in Bay County, FL, after leading deputies on a chase. Clarendon County deputies brought him back to face charges Sunday.

On Tuesday, Eady waived his right to appear before a judge. He was scheduled to appear before a magistrate but chose to stay in jail until he can appear before a circuit judge, who could consider bail.
