Hephzibah Man Accused of Concealing Death of Woman Whose Body was Found in Car at CVS


A Hephzibah man has been charged with concealing the death of a local woman after she was found dead Wednesday in a vehicle outside the CVS Pharmacy.

Connie McHan, 44, was found dead inside a vehicle Wednesday night at the pharmacy on Windsor Spring Road and Meadowbrook Drive. Her death is being called “suspicious” and an autopsy is pending, Coroner Mark Bowen said in a Monday press release.

An initial investigation led to charges against 46-year-old Marcus Salmond of Hephzibah for concealing a death and tampering with evidence. Both are felonies.

Warrants say he moved McHan’s body to “hinder discovery” of whether or not she was unlawfully killed. Salmond is also accused of  “altering the crime scene by removing the victim’s cell phone and hiding it” from its original location. This offense occurred at 2559 Windsor Spring Road located in Hephzibah, the warrant says.

Salmond is a convicted felon with numerous arrests for marijuana offenses as well as obstruction, fleeing police and reckless driving. In 2012, he was sentenced to a decade in prison for dealing marijuana.

McHan’s daughter, Kayla Robinson, remembered her online with a heartfelt post: “We are devastated by this loss and appreciate your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Details about her memorial service will be shared soon. … Thank you for your support and understanding. I love you Mama Connie M McHan.”
