... Inman was arrested during a traffic stop just a mile from his parents' home in Tennessee. Authorities say his D-N-A matched samples taken from the apartment of victim Tiffany Souers. Her body was found May 26th, with her wrists and neck bound.

Inman has a court appearance today and Jefferson County, Tennessee, Sheriff David Davenport says the suspect could be returned to South Carolina quickly if he decides to waive extradition."

This whole incident brings out a potential problem that I think all college campuses can have. I realize he was a construction worker at an off campus site. However, how many campuses have construction going on while students are there? How many of those companies do background checks? What and who are our children being exposed to you? In addition many campuses have auxiliary services such as food service. Do those companies do background checks? Pre-employment screening for actual college employees is probably pretty good - but what about those employers associated with the college? Just my thoughts and an area I think of concern.
Seems as though colleges have had much to ponder lately (Duke i.e.). I doubt many construction firms do serious background checks and I kind of doubt that it is illegal to hire a former convict in any case, can't you just see the ACLU having fun with that one if it could be proved someone was intentionally not hired because they had previous convictions and served jail time ...whew !!! Can hear it now - criminals have rights too....

IMO the problem at hand is for the justice system itself to resolve. The public can assist by reviewing a judge's actual record - if inappropriate - vote them out of office. Some are appointed to lifetime positions - that is just wrong and should be terminated immediately. Plea bargins, time off for good behavior, releasing criminals to make room in the cells for newcomers etc. The justice system makes several claims about rehabilitation but in truth I seriously doubt that little true effort is made towards rehabilitation while a criminal is in jail. Not enough staff at most prisions to deal effectively with the criminals. Heck they made Martha Stewart wear an electronic braclet so they could keep track of her - where the heck was Mr. Inman's braclet? I would rather meet Martha Stewart in a dark alley than Mr. Inman, Good example of how bloody stupid the courts can be.

There needs to be, IMO, a thorough review and revamp of how to deal with sex offenders and violent offenders and sentencing for committing such crimes should actually mean something. When will they learn, Jessica Lunsford, Dylan Groene, Karlie Bruscia (sp) and this list goes on and on - 100s of children and adults that would still be alive if the justice system actually took the issues seriously IMO. The sad point is, is that even with all the publicity - the courts still are not listening. I keep hearing all these lawyers say we are a country of law - seems to me the law has been seriously perverted. JMHO

He's also charged with kidnapping? I can understand unlawful detention (or whatever term it might be labeled), but I don't understand kidnapping. Is there more to this story?

Someone asked about the DNA connection. I, too, find that intriguing. I imagine that the DNA was retrieved from Tiffany herself, and that when it was run through the database, they got the link to this scum from his prior sex crime arrest. I imagine that that's why he took the sheets. I imagine that he somehow thought he'd get away with this?

What a maniac - looking at his record, I cannot believe for a second that he was ever let go. It is obvious to me, and probably to all of us here, that this guy was not looking to "get better". This is disgusting.

I think the kidnappng charge is in place because she was bound at her wrists and neck. I am glad that one is off the street but they better be checking for unsolveds too. His mother also said that he would take off for a couple of days at a time.....stalking/peeping his prey, probably.

Call me naive, but I didn't realize that she was bound and sexually assaulted (raped?).

This guy's mother said that he was working in Tennessee. How far is South Carolina from Tennessee. Also, I was assuming that he was working construction at the site adjacent to Tiffany's apartment complex. I figured that he had seen her from that site.

FOX Carolina The Ten O'Clock News Only on FOX: Souers Family Reacts To Capture (http://www.fox21.com/Global/story.asp?S=4997969&nav=2KPp)

... Souers says, "I think it is my understanding that her room faced a construction site...as he was building, he was looking my daughter's room."

Tiffany's parents believe the killer stalked their daughter. Tiffany had only been living at the apartment complex for 7 days. "I'm going to tell you, it wouldn't surprise me if Tiffany left her door open...a word to the wise."

The Souers family says their love for Tiffany has kept them together and they've tried not to let anger enter their minds. But when Jim Souers saw the suspect's picture he says he thought, "Absolute disgust and anger..going into my daughter's apartment words I can't use on radio or TV..."

"She was incredible..we're so proud of her...so proud..never forget her..."

Hi JerseyGirl,
I'm interpreting it as projected release date 4-4-99 but actual release date 1-4-99. I'm not sure what they consider high risk but how unfortunate that Inman was not more successful in his self injury attempt!

I really think it depends on the type of conviction. If it is related to your work - then an employer can choose to not hire. i.e. if you have been convicted of embezzlement - a bank would not have to hire you.

I'm going to check - but some legislation - I believe was passed in Ca relative to sex offenders and working at a school. This was as a result of a very sad incident that happened at a Sacramento High School. It might have been that a school can't hire until the background check is completed. Everything that we can do - I feel should be done.

I totally agree that we really need to look at how sex offenders are handled. From sentencing to parole to monitoring. There is just too many incidents of repeat offenses - light sentences and a poor child or young adult pays the price. When are judges - parole boards etc going to get it?

S.C. Slaying Suspect Waives Extradition

Davenport said Inman has been talking to investigators.

"He didn't know the victim," Davenport said Wednesday. "It is our information he was driving around in the (victim's) neighborhood and saw her and he liked her looks."

Souers, a 20-year-old civil engineering student from the St. Louis suburb of Ladue, Mo., was wearing only a bra when she was found May 26 on the bedroom floor in her off-campus apartment. The bikini top was still around her neck and her wrists and ankles were bound.

Inman was registered as a sex offender in Florida and North Carolina. Davenport said his department had been told by South Carolina authorities to look for Inman, whose family moved to the area from Florida in 2000. Authorities staked out the relatives' homes and spotted Inman driving by in a red Chevy Blazer around 11:45 p.m.
Chief Deputy Bob McCoyg pulled him over and arrested him without incident.

"His vehicle had several items in it that were related to the crimes," McCoyg said Wednesday.

This is a bit O/T but I am really surprised at the post that mentioned her apartment complex supplied panic buttons in all the apartments. Is this typical of apartments these days? I have never had one of those in any of my apartments, nor have I heard of it before. I especially wouldn't have expected to hear of one in a Clemson apartment.

I am so thankful that Tiffany's parents can watch this horrible excuse of a human be charged for this horrific crime. Does SC have the death penalty? Also, I wonder what items were found in his car relating to this crime.

There has to be more victims. This was too aggressive and brazen an act IMO.

Alleged Killer of Tiffany Souers Arrested in Tennessee - The Crime library (http://www.crimelibrary.com/news/original/0606/0701_alleged_souers_killer_arrested_in_tennessee5. html)

... In Hillsborough County, on December 14, 1987, Jerry Inman had committed sexual battery with a weapon or force, robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary, grand theft of a motor vehicle, aggravated assault with intent to kill, and kidnapping.

... Inman was finally convicted and on September 5, 1989, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

... convicted in North Carolina on September 26, 1988 of another sex offense. ... Inman was sentenced to a maximum term of 20 years. According to his record, Inman tried to escape twice, and had at least 24 other unspecified infractions. For North Carolina's purposes, Jerry Inman's sentence was up in January of 1999. A 2nd degree sexual assault netted Inman 11 years of a 20-year sentence in North Carolina, and this was apparently served concurrently with his sentence in Florida.

... Bren Souers, Tiffany's mother, expressed a measure of relief at news of the accused killer's capture. "We're moving in the right direction," she said, "We can move on with how we put the pieces together in our lives without our little girl."

Some of the newer apt/condos have built in security systems, and one has the option of purchasing a separate 'panic button mechanism'. Even with a security system (which also have panic buttons), one has to be able to get to it.

When I am staying here alone, I always have the 'panic button' within reach.

SC does have the death penalty, per the news last night.

I pray this piece of crap, pleads guilty and spares Tiffany's family from having to suffer further through a trial. Someone on FOX mentioned this monster/raper/killer could have a mental disease defense defense ---I say fry him!

Question: If he does plead 'guilty', could he still get the death penalty? Probably not huh?

... When Jerry Inman was released from prison in Florida last September, the state prison system registered him as a sex offender as a prerequisite for his release, said Tom Berlinger, chief media spokesman for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.

Another requirement was that he provide a DNA sample for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s DNA database, which became one of the two DNA matches made to crime scene evidence, Mr. Berlinger said...

The site lists tattoos of a skull on his back; a tiger on his chest; a skull pentagram on his left hand; a skull dagger on his left leg; a bat on his neck; a skull, dragon, cross, and "memory of broth" on his right arm; a skull on his right hand; and a female gun on his stomach...

If he was suicidal, shame he didn't act on it and suceed before he hurt someone. Maybe they should just slip a good sharp knife into his cell and see, save the good tax payers of S.C. the cost of a trial and prevent any chance some idiot judge or parole board will ever let him walk the streets again.

Suspect confesses to killing; two other rapes, authorities say

DANDRIDGE, Tenn., — Jerry Buck Inman confessed to the strangling death of Clemson University student Tiffany Marie Souers and two other rapes involving young blonde women in Alabama and Tennessee just days before, authorities said Wednesday.

In all three cases he was driving around and just happened to see these women,

"We asked him, `Why?', and all he would say was that he's a sick animal," Chief Deputy McCoig said.

Surviving a rape would have to be just horrendous, and thank the good Lord I don't know from experience. However, these other two girls are certainly lucky to be alive. I am sure that they are going through a terribly traumatic time knowing that he murdered poor Tiffany and that could have been them.

You are not alone in your thinking. But it has to be broadcasted to be effective.People need to understand that because they admit or they deny a heinous crime has been committed, they will be prosecuted. This will go a long way to insure that sexual predators are not released early. They will continue and escalate. The perverson is going to be part and parcel to their lives. It has to be stopped and the courts are the jurisdiction to see that it is. I think that all of us have stepped up to the plate and all of us want to see reponsibility come to the people who see this and want it stopped.

Inman spent most of life in jail

Florida authorities released Mr. Inman in September after he served only six years in prison there. Mr. Inman was sentenced in 1989 in Florida to serve four 30-year sentences and two five-year sentences for kidnapping, sexual battery, burglary, armed robbery, grand theft auto and aggravated assault in Hillsborough County, Fla. Those occurred on Dec. 14, 1987.

A judge sentenced Inman to serve his sentences - which amounted to 130 years in jail - concurrently, meaning his total sentence was actually only 30 years.

But in 1988, Inman had been convicted of a sexual offense in the second degree in North Carolina and sentenced to 20 years in prison there

In 1989, however, he was taken to Florida, where he was convicted of the Hillsborough County charges, according to state records.

Then, Mr. Inman was returned to a North Carolina prison to complete his North Carolina sentence.

Mr. Inman’s jail time trail is complicated because of the different jurisdictions, crediting of prison time and use of concurrent sentencing practices.


more at link (http://www.independentmail.com/and/home/article/0,1886,AND_8195_4757726,00.html)

ETA - the article also states Mr. Inman’s time served was shortened because he received credit for the days he remained in jail while awaiting trial and because he received "gain time," an incentive offered for good behavior or participation in certain programs allowing inmates an opportunity to earn a reduction in a sentence imposed by the court, Ms. Plessinger said.

:waitasec: my question is, how are they defining "good behavior"?? Does this qualify??

I'm so glad that they caught him. I feel so bad for Tiffany's parents just knowing what this evil, creepy, pervert did to their daughter and knowing that his ugly face and bald head was the last thing that that sweet girl ever saw. I can't stand to look at the man. I get a shiver right down my spine everytime his picture shows on TV. You just have to look at him and know that he feels no remorse at all. They do have the death penalty in that state and it sounds like the Pros is going for it.

This guy should never in a million years been let out of prison. I can't see the sense in giving a person 3 30 year sentences if they are going to all be served at the same time. That is just a bunch of bull. In reality the guy got one 30 year sentence no matter how the judicial system trys to make it look.
So much of what they say is nothing but double talk to make the public think that they are really slamming it to these perverts.

Also, one of the other officers from one of the other attempted rape cases in another state said that the victim talked him out of raping her...his words were something like "she witnessed to him and he stopped"

I saw portions of Greta last night and heard this, too. It reminded me of that Duncan guy who drove around and spotted the Groene children playing in a sprinkler.

I wonder if Inman had entered Tiffany's apartment just to rape and not murder her. Perhaps, he was angered because she fought back. The woman in Alabama talked him out of raping her (according to last night's Greta).

It is so sad that a woman had to be murdered to get this guy off of the streets. Surely, he left DNA in the other two cases. It seems to me that if the police had been quicker in following up with those cases, perhaps, a life could have been saved.

Maybe, that's being unrealistic. I believe that the Alabama attempted rape occurred just three (?) days prior to the murder. I don't know when the Tennessee rape occurred.

our system seems to bend over backwards to protect the criminals ( such as not keeping track of him certainly, but also making sure he got whatever the ratio of waiting in jail for sentencing was taken off his sentence ) it seems impossible that with all of those charges the short amount of time he served was all that he was sentenced too. I also agree that if he wasnt being careful about leaving DNA here im sure he wasnt in Tenn and alabama. Such a tragedy for everyone involved :(

I haven't heard how he got in, but I feel certain that he would have used any means possible. I heard something last night on one of the cable shows that he entered the home in Alabama through floor tiles or something like that.

I think that he spotted Tiffany, waited for her to go to sleep and slipped in somehow. I am assuming that she was still in the process of getting ready for bed as she was on the phone for a while after she returned home (or at least that is what I heard on the news, I think).

I'm not sure of the scenario, though, because it was said that he removed the sheets from her bed. This makes me wonder what kind of DNA they found if this guy thought that he was removing all of the evidence by removing the sheets.

I've been thinking. I'm very OCD about doors and windows being locked even when I'm home. I lock my BF out all the time when he's barbecueing. LOL But even if you lock up tight if someone is determined to get in they will. I once dated a guy that after we broke up I was sure that even when I locked up he was still getting in. Come to find out even though the sliding glass door was locked he was taking it off the track. The door was at the back that faced a golf course with lots of brush and no one would notice if something like that were going on.

Yep, locked doors don't stop a determined perp. Sounds like we need to send our kids to bootcamp and learn to defend themselves with deadly force just to survive in this sick world. This is all too much for me right now, My Daughter just moved to Phoenix to go to College and I am really creeped out by the reality of this crap. Last night she called and said she was locked outside her apt and sitting in the rain waiting for a friend to come and help her. I am besides myself with worry about her....she really has her head up her butt and thinks nothing can happen to her.

Nanandjim, and all, I had the impression from something Tiffany's mother had said, that this sickos was going to be exposed from something Tiffany had done. It made me think, Tiffany had fought back and somehow someway LE had a good source of his DNA--which they did.

I agree, this guy should've been stopped. Did LE have the other women look at mug shots of the sex offenders? I thought the one lady recognized him from his picture in the media. Right?

He did move around from state to state. Maybe his construction job near Tiffany's place was a site where workers were hired day to day. Somewhere it was said, he lived out of this car. I guess that is when he wasn't living with his mother.

Also, I think it was in the media, TIffany was on the computer until 12:03.

Yeah, how did this rapist/murderer get in the apt? Also wondering since Tiffany had a balcony, maybe she didn't lock the door, being on the second floor. Also thought she had a ground apt, but the word balcony was used.

No doubt she probably fought back so hard, he killed her to shut her up.

Hope we get some answers. soon

I think that it would hard to track down the perp from using mugshots, especially from an out-of-state offender. Supposedly, a friend of the Alabama victim, recognized the guy from the victim's description. She called the victim and told her to turn on her television. The victim recognized him from photos on television.

...Maybe his construction job near Tiffany's place was a site where workers were hired day to day...
A representative said that Inman did not work at the construction site near Tiffany's apartment complex. He also said that background checks are done on all the construction workers before they are hired.

...Also wondering since Tiffany had a balcony, maybe she didn't lock the door, being on the second floor. Also thought she had a ground apt, but the word balcony was used.
The balcony comment confused me. It is my understanding that she had a unit in the back sort of below the first floor. You know, the type that you walk down to on a slant (if that makes sense). Maybe, he saw her sunning herself on a little back patio or something. I'm not sure how he would see her while he was cruising in his car as her unit was supposed to be in the back.

As investigators questioned him ... Jerry Buck Inman (http://www.goupstate.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Inman%2C_South_Carolina) kept looking down, calling himself an "animal...

Inman (http://www.goupstate.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Inman%2C_South_Carolina), 35, traveled around the Southeast looking for victims to sexually assault, Jefferson County Sheriff David Davenport said.

Authorities said the crimes got progressively more violent ...

The magistrate did not set bond for Inman (http://www.goupstate.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Inman%2C_South_Carolina), who was being held in solitary confinement.

Inman (http://www.goupstate.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Inman%2C_South_Carolina) has also been charged with burglary, robbery, theft of property and attempted rape in an incident three days before Souers was found where authorities said he broke into a home in Rainsville, Ala., and tried to attack a woman after she came home for lunch. Davenport said he expects Inman (http://www.goupstate.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Inman%2C_South_Carolina) will also be charged with a May 24 rape in Sevierville, Tenn.

Davenport said the victims identified Inman (http://www.goupstate.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Inman%2C_South_Carolina) from his tattoos...

Inman (http://www.goupstate.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?template=wiki&text=Inman%2C_South_Carolina)'s lawyer said his client's first concern was the welfare of his mother. He wanted to make sure she knew he hadn't been mistreated and that he was keeping his spirits up...

... "The next step for us is to determine whether this is a death penalty case," a spokeswoman for 13th Circuit Solicitor Bob Ariail told Crime Library this morning. "There is no urgency; the man is in jail and he's never going anywhere so the urgency is off..."

Though authorities in South Carolina declined Thursday to discuss the details of his confession, The Associated Press reported that Inman ... had a habit of driving around looking for potential victims. Authorities have said that Inman hadn't even realized that he had crossed into South Carolina — where he was not on any sex offender's registry — where Souers was slain...

KnoxNews: National (http://news:%20National/)

The ex-convict accused of killing Clemson University student Tiffany Souers would probably still be in prison if newer laws were in effect in the late 1980s, authorities say...

Inman's Florida conviction occurred before a 1995 Florida law that required all felony inmates to serve at least 85 percent of their sentences...

"In the '80s, criminals served only about half of their sentences," Cox said. "The Florida legislators saw the error of their ways and tightened up those laws. Sentences now are a lot heavier."

Criminals now serve more time on average, and for some offenses they must serve the sentences "day for day," Cox said...

Concurrent sentences are very common, especially since the tougher laws have been enacted, said South Carolina 10th Circuit Judge J. Cordell Maddox.

"Since judges know that criminals will serve most of the sentence anyway, more of them lean toward making the sentences concurrent," Maddox said.

... The woman in Sevierville says the rapist attacked her in her bedroom. She describes him as a man with a bald head, about 5'7 and says he smelled like a smoker. Some people say the description fits Inman's profile.

They haven't charged him in that case, but investigators say they are pretty sure about an attempted rape in DeKalb County Alabama. Beth Bates says she came face to face with Inman."He rubbed me on the back and said I'm sorry. Even when he locked me in the closet he said I"m sorry," said Bates. Investigators in DeKalb started looking into an attempted rape case on May 23. A woman says Jerry Inman made a hole in her floor from under her house to get in. "I said don't hurt me, because I have a daughter and he said I know so that made me feel like that he was watching me the whole time," commented Bates.

She says he then put a knife to her throat and tried to rape her...

I think Unfortunately in Tiffany's case she must have fought him as previously stated in another posters comments. I think her Mom commented that Tiffany would fight for her life if needed.. that may just have cost her her life in this case... I beleive the woman mentioned in this attack in Atlanta mentioned how hard it was to not fight him..and that it mayhave saved her life. I also think this guy was escalating the attacks and the violence associated with each attack.. so incredibly sad that such a bright wonderful girl had to suffer and lose her life at the hands of this animal ..who should never have been out to begin with!

I theorized that in one of my posts. I'm afraid that I would also be dead because I would fight to the end. I just wouldn't take a chance of letting this guy tie me up. Then, you are completely defenseless. I don't care if he told me to cooperate and he wouldn't hurt me. Sorry, but I don't think that those assurances would be comforting to me.

I would as well.. no way would I sit quietly and allow this creep to have any control if possible.. having read the cases on this board like Imette St Guillen, I would be far more fearful of what would happen if I was tied up...I would rather go down fighting. its far more likely to be so much worse when they have complete control and I just dont think that many of these guys will just let you go at the end especially if you can identify them.

In the past, every time Rebublicans have tried to fund expansion of prisons, Democrats have blocked it, saying that's not the answer, the answer is lowering the crime rate. Never mind the fact the population is growing rapidly overall. They need to hunker down and do what they have to do to expand our jails and prisons, as they are all overcrowded, by far.

KnoxNews: National (http://news:%20National/)

The ex-convict accused of killing Clemson University student Tiffany Souers would probably still be in prison if newer laws were in effect in the late 1980s, authorities say...

Inman's Florida conviction occurred before a 1995 Florida law that required all felony inmates to serve at least 85 percent of their sentences...

"In the '80s, criminals served only about half of their sentences," Cox said. "The Florida legislators saw the error of their ways and tightened up those laws. Sentences now are a lot heavier."

Criminals now serve more time on average, and for some offenses they must serve the sentences "day for day," Cox said...

Concurrent sentences are very common, especially since the tougher laws have been enacted, said South Carolina 10th Circuit Judge J. Cordell Maddox.

"Since judges know that criminals will serve most of the sentence anyway, more of them lean toward making the sentences concurrent," Maddox said.

Now this ticks me off!! What is the point of a prison sentence if people don't have to serve the entire sentence?
I could maybe excuse someone from serving a full term if they had stole money from a candy store but didn't hurt anyone. But these kinds of perpetrators should have ALWAYS had to serve a full term.
Who makes these laws?
The court system stinks!!

"He did say when he saw one particular one, he waited until she went to sleep," he said of the attack on Souers. "He thought she was asleep and that's when he entered the apartment.




I heard on the news that Inman was not aware that his picture was being shown all over TV. He said if he had known that he would have been gone.

AP Wire | 06/09/2006 | Alabama victim: Inman apologized during home invasion ordeal (http://www.belleville.com/mld/belleville/news/state/14782798.htm)

... Bates said she came home from work from around lunchtime on May 23 and was doing a few chores when a man suddenly came up behind her and put a knife to her throat. Bates said he told her she wouldn't be hurt if she stayed calm.

"I tried to do that but it's harder than it sounds," said Bates, whose 7-year-old daughter was in school for the final day of class...

"He would tell me everything he was going to do before he did it. When he was tying my hands, he asked me if he was hurting me. He was very apologetic. He seemed to have some control over what he was doing, but seemed sincere in apologizing," Bates said.

Bates said the man took her into the bedroom and told her to lie down on the bed. As she prayed, he unfastened her pants. Then he stopped.

"I think God just intervened at that point. I was terrified. But (Inman) just kept telling me that if I listened to him and did what he said then he wouldn't hurt me. You wouldn't think you would trust somebody like that but I really didn't have a choice. I just put my faith in God," Bates said...

To the few who remember him in this small lakeside community, Jerry Inman will always be "Bucky," a "regular rambunctious boy ... a real sweet little guy" from 20 years ago.
But authorities who arrested him ... have a different view.

"I don't think he is bad, I think he is evil," said Sheriff David Davenport, whose deputies elicited a confession from the heavily tattooed Inman in the hours after his surrender in a church parking lot near his parents' home........



Nine months before, Inman was a free man for the first time in his adult life, after spending the past 18 years in prisons in North Carolina and then Florida for homosexual and heterosexual rapes committed in those states as a teenager.......


"I have known the family for 20 or 25 years and they are some of the best people I know," said lifelong resident Kathleen James, 68. They belonged to the same church, Swansylvania Baptist Church, and became instant friends when they helped her cope with her mother's death.

Jerry Buck Inman "attended our church and was in our youth group," she said. "And he was just a regular rambunctious boy, like all the rest of them. He was a real sweet little guy......."



But earlier in the week Hensley told WATE-TV that Inman seemed "frustrated with his life. I think he had some dreams and had some goals and had some aspirations, and he didn't know exactly how to get there."

WREG-TV Memphis - Bikini Murder Suspect Captured in East Tennessee (http://www.wreg.com/Global/story.asp?S=4998271)

... "How he destroyed an almost and most perfect life, he destroyed the life and for what? You know to destroy it and how long did it take, 5 minutes, 30 minutes, I mean really," said Jim Souer, Tiffany's father...



I believe that parents are so torn over wanting to know exactly what happened and how long it took and not wanting to know anything because that is what will remain in your head. One of the witnesses to my daughter's murder told me what she saw. We happened to meet at my daughter's place of work and she just told me. Part of me wanted to know and part of me didn't. I think that we feel that if we don't know our imaginations will just run wild but if we know then we can never get that picture out of our minds. Part of us wants to know how much or how little our child suffered but once you know you wish that you didn't know. It's a battle of the mind. I think one of the worst parts is knowing that your child knew he/she was going to die.
You can't help but think of the terror that they must have felt. It really is horrible.

My heart goes out to Tiffiney's parents and every other parent who has to go through this. The grief of losing your child is nightmare enough but everything else involved just makes it worse and it is something that you can never truly erase from your mind. No one likes to know about or see their child in pain...like when they are little. Knowing that your child suffered horribly and you weren't there to stop it is hard.

The investigator, Rhonda Jackson, said certain details of the case were similar to the rape in Sevierville.

Inman denied the Henagar rape and said he was "tired of talking," Jackson said.

"He said, 'I've already admitted to three crimes, and that's all I've done,'" Jackson said.

Jackson said she was also investigating whether Inman could be responsible for other crimes in Alabama. She noted that his Chevrolet Camaro was found burned Feb. 28 off a county road about 45 miles northeast of Birmingham.

Inman told authorities then that he had been driving to Louisiana to seek construction work when his car caught fire, and that he hitchhiked home. Jackson noted that his car was found off a county road, not an interstate, which she said suggested he was not just passing through.

Jerry Buck Inman, 36, faces kidnapping, rape and murder charges in the death of Tiffany Marie Souers.

Souers, an engineering student from Ladue, Mo., was found inside her off-campus apartment May 26, 2006. Police said a bikini top used to choke her was still around her neck.

Inman's attorney, Symmes Culbertson, said Wednesday that pretrial motions would be considered but would not provide details. A spokeswoman for prosecutor Bob Ariail also confirmed motions would be heard Friday.

Ariail has said he intends to seek the death penalty for Inman.

Sounds like the defense attorney is using reverse psychology on the judge?
Inman feels so guilty over this murder that he would rather die then spend the rest of his life in prison. He suffers daily he feels so bad!!! My words but same thing his attorney stated. What a crock!

I wonder if he felt this same guilt over the many rapes he committed?? I wouldn't think so as he just kept raping women. Sounds like those women could identify him because they testified in court. So his excuse for killing this young girl doesn't hold any water as far as I'm concerned. So she could have identified him....she would have just been one of many.

I hope he does get the death penalty and has to sit in a tiny cell for 20 years. That means they also get LWOP too along with the death penalty.

This doesn't sound so bad. I'd settle for this if they don't give him death:

Inman would be under lockdown 23 hours and have one hour to recreate or shower alone. This is for his security, Dr. Aiken says, because they have to assume gangs are out to kill him. Aiken says it would be this way every day for the rest of Inman’s life.

What's so different about this time in prison for him? He's spent most of his adult life in prison...probably has friends there. Just send him on!

Sentencing to resume for man who killed SC student

As the third anniversary of Tiffany Souers' death approaches, sentencing for the man who confessed to raping and strangling the South Carolina college student in her off-campus apartment is set to resume Monday.
Inman served 18 years for rapes in North Carolina and Florida and is a registered sex offender in both states. He was free for about nine months before his arrest in Souers' death. He also faces charges in an attempted rape in Alabama and a rape in Tennessee that authorities have said occurred in the days leading up to Souers' death.

Inman defense accuses solicitor of misconduct

Greenville attorney Jim Bannister filed a motion that Solicitor Bob Ariail be recused from the sentencing hearing of Jerry Buck Inman, who pleaded guilty to murdering and raping 20-year-old Tiffany Souers in May 2006.

Bannister also asked for a mistrial.

He made the motions, questioning the solicitor’s conduct toward defense witness Dr. Marti Loring, a sociologist originally slated to testify last September in the sentencing hearing on behalf of Inman.

However, the judge said there were no grounds to recuse Arial from the case.
After Loring’s testimony, Bannister called to the stand, John Mauldin, who testified to having a similar situation take place concerning the solicitor’s conduct during another death penalty sentencing.

When the hearing broke for lunch, Mauldin was still on the stand.

Since Inman pleaded guilty, Miller must decide if the Tennessee native gets the death penalty or life in prison.

A judge has refused to stop the sentencing hearing for a Tennessee man who confessed to raping and strangling a South Carolina college student.


Circuit Judge Edward Miller on Tuesday refused a request for a mistrial by an attorney for Jerry Buck Inman.


Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Inman for the death of Tiffany Souers.

Man gets death for raping, strangling SC student

A Tennessee man who raped and strangled a South Carolina college student with her own bikini top was sentenced to die Wednesday, hours after he asked a judge to put him to death.


Jerry Buck Inman, 38, showed no reaction when Circuit Court Judge Edward Miller said he should die for killing Tiffany Marie Souers. Inman then apologized to the slain woman's family, though no relatives were in the courtroom.
He asked Miller for the sentence, which is carried out with either lethal injection or the electric chair in South Carolina.

"I've shown by my actions both in and out of prison that I cannot be rehabilitated," Inman, 38, told the judge. "I don't say any of this to be disrespectful, but your honor, in all reality, there's really only one sentence appropriate for someone like me, and I ask you to impose that sentence."

Jerry Inman was scheduled for execution, yesterday. Not finding anything to indicate he was executed. I wonder if an appeal was made.

The execution date is set by the judge at sentencing, but I've never heard of an execution taking place on that date. :behindbar MOO

No new trial for man who raped, killed SC student

COLUMBIA, S.C. The same judge who sentenced a Tennessee man to die for raping and strangling a South Carolina college student with her own bikini top has denied the convicted sex offender's request for a new trial, prosecutors said Thursday.

"With the denial of this motion, we are one step closer to having Mr. Inman's death sentence carried out," Solicitor Bob Ariail said in a news release. "And I can think of no one more deserving of that sentence than Jerry 'Buck' Inman."
