South Carolina community fears serial killer

serialPeople in a rural part of South Carolina have cancelled Independence Day events and are arming themselves in fear of a killer after five shootings.

A girl of 15 injured in an attack which killed her father on Thursday has died in hospital, the Cherokee County coroner announced. Police are linking their deaths to the shooting of two women and a man days before, and suspect a serial killer.

They believe the suspect is a man in his 40s, driving a Ford Explorer. The killings have taken place in or around the small town of Gaffney. For some residents, the recent events are a reminder of the “Gaffney Strangler”, who terrorised the community in the late 1960s.

The strangler, Lee Roy Martin, killed four women over 10 days in 1968 and vowed to kill more, before being arrested.

Fear and concern

Police have released a sketch of a male who is said to be tall with salt and pepper hair. “We’re knee-deep in the investigation,” said County Sheriff Bill Blanton. “There’s fear and concern here and there should be concern.”

The shootings all occurred within about 10 miles (16km) of each other in Cherokee County, a rural community of 54,000 people set amid peach orchards and farms some 50 miles west of Charlotte, North Carolina.

Dozens of local, state and federal investigators have been assigned to the case. Cherokee County resident Hazel Smith, 47, told the Associated Press news agency her neighbours felt vulnerable.

“If he killed once, he’ll kill again,” she said.

“Tonight, I’m going to stay inside and pray, pray a little harder that he gets caught.”
