COLUMBIA, S.C. — Following the tragic passing of 31-year-old Chandreka Graham, her family has come forward to share their thoughts just days after she was found deceased in her home in northeast Richland County.

Chandreka’s father, Harold White from Tallahassee, Florida, expressed his deep sorrow upon receiving the heartbreaking news from the Richland County coroner.

Chandreka’s stepmother, Cathy White, highlighted Chandreka’s profound love for motherhood, stating that she cherished being a mother above all else and excelled in that role. The family is further saddened by the fact that Chandreka was seven months pregnant with her first daughter, whom she had already named Tegan.
