Two additional Upstate churches in Greenville County were vandalized with satanic messages spray painted on to the church walls, some naming Billy Graham.

The vandalism was discovered at Life Spring Community Church in Simpsonville on Sunday and at Iglesia de Dios Pentecostal M.I. on Piedmont Highway in Piedmont. The churches are about a 15-minute drive from one another.

Greenville County deputies said they are investigating the incidents, and believe the vandalism occurred between 5 p.m. on Feb. 24 and 8 a.m. on Feb. 25.

"The various messages, used profanity and one of the messages translated to, 'Under Billy Graham lives the devil,'" said Sgt. Ryan Flood.

Flood said neither church had exterior surveillance cameras to capture images of the suspects.

Anyone with information regarding the vandalism is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 864-23-CRIME.

These latest cases are two of five similar incidents reported in Greenville County in less than a month.

NOTE: We have blurred references to Rev. Graham's name, as well as all curse words.
