    From what I recall, he and his wife lived in NC and not SC. That's where they raised their family. If I'm mistaken, or if anyone can add the name (I believe it's Anson or Ansonborough, but that's a street here in Charleston, so I might be confusing it), please do.

    He was a truck driver and often travelled to and through South Carolina. His wife being in a NC hospital isn't all that abnormal considering where they lived. If it were serious or if they needed a specialist, she would have been sent to a larger hospital. I would like to know why she was in the hospital, but I don't know if it's really pertinent to the case.

    I also don't think Lonnie did it. I think he knew who did, though.

    For some reason it was stuck in my head he was from SC. So now of course it makes perfect sense to me that if he lived there she would of course been hospitalized there. Thanks for clearing that up for me!

    And the results of the lie detector test do seem to indicate that he had some type of knowledge he never chose to share with law enforcement about what happened to this couple.

    Correct me if I'm wrong.
    I remember reading Lonnie Henry lived in Wadesboro, N.C...

    Youshould...IF Lonnie didn't shoot the young couple, he certainly knew who did, they had to give him the Smoking Gun back....

    I don't understand WHY LE allowed him to get out of the situation so easily.

    I read he died in '82 taking the secret with him....

    I'm sure at one time he could have, but the census or obituary listed him from Anson NC which it quite close to Monroe and Charlotte.

    It's Christmas morning here.
    With all the joy of opening presents from under the Christmas tree, my thoughts drifted back to the beautiful young couple murdered in S.C.. If they had not been murdered, they would be having Christmas with their children and loved ones, also.

    I'm wishing all of you a happy and healthy 2009...

    I haven't heard anything about the DNA, but I do know that UID cases, especially ones this old, are usually always on the back burner, with new cases coming in all the time and results being required before a certain date.

    I can't recall who was in contact with Verna. I'm not the best at making contacts with cases because I tend to figuritively live out of my car for 7 weeks at a time... checking emails and making and recieving phone calls isn't my forte.

    If anyone else would like to take on that role, that is, if the person who originally was in contact can't come forth or continue with the case, by all means, give them a call.

    ShadeTreePI and rmf, who post on here occasionally, are the ones who sometimes make contact with Verna. All I know is that the DNA results haven't come back yet but Verna is soon to leave office. She lost the election last summer and her term is up January 1. I know that one of the members of the Sheriff's Dept was working with her; perhaps after she leaves office he can check on the DNA results at the lab in Texas. I seriously doubt if the guy who got elected Sumter County coroner is going to put any time into this case at all. Verna has been working hard on it because she was involved with the case as an assistant coroner back in 1976 when it happened. I really wish the DNA results at least had come back while Verna was still coroner.

    This is all so sad and too bad. You would think with all the time and effort that Verna has put into this case, that her community would support her in her efforts to get to the bottom of who this people are for crying out loud. They exhumed the body, the hardest part is over, I just dont understand all the delaying now. I could see if they were still stuck up in no where's land trying to get an okay to exhume the body. But the hardest part is already done. I dont know the poster who have been in touch with Verna, Rmf? Can someone who knows her contact Verna? Such a sad story, at least if not closure for the family that dont even know they have loved ones dead, there would be answers and closure for Verna. Jmio. Thanks

    The DNA is not back yet. It has been 18 months. I will stay in contact with Verna and the Sheriff and if there are any updates, they'll be posted. Verna does not plan to give up on this case even after she retires.

    Thankyou for taking the time out to respond. Cases like these just make you hug your family a little tighter. All so so very sad; On a differant note,
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU! HOPEFULLY, I PRAY THAT 2009 WILL BE THE YEAR THAT THIS COUPLE CAN BE IDENTIFIED AND BE ABLE TO REST IN PEACE FOR ETERNITY.

    This is my first post here. Last night I was directed over here to read on the Caylee Anthony case and this caught my eye. I read everything for hours. I can't imagine how something could have happened so close to my home and it not be something I have ever heard of. One thing is for certain, this couple has haunted me.

    I know a little about the racing circuit from that time period as my grandfather (deceased) was a racing hopeful. Drugs were involved with racing. Runs were made with racing cars to various parts of the US (think Dukes of Hazzard). He and my mother (also deceased) traveled from the Midlands of SC to Darlington often. I wonder how connected this couple was to the racing circuit. Or maybe, just maybe, they were just around to go to Myrtle Beach for the bicentennial?

    Either way, I agree that these two are probably related. I also have a concern about the owner of the gun. He lived in the area I currently live in. Honestly, this area is full of the "good old boy" nature and it is quite possible that it was known he killed these people, but covered it all up. It is not unusual for anyone to have guns and attempt to hide ownership of them--these people are really afraid their guns will be taken from them.

    These are just my observations from living in this area.

    Sadly, I agree as well. The truth and the killer in my opinion died before justice could be served. In todays world, a suspect would never get away that easy...well, I guess we still have technicalities..but I dont see them ever getting thier justice, but at least for crying out loud, give them thier identities, so that they may rest in peace.

    I can't stop thinking about these two since I read this thread last week.

    One thing that stands out in my mind is the dental work. If they were related wouldn't she have had the same access to dental work as he? It seems like he had been better taken care of dentristy wise.

    Also wouldn't it have been fairly easy to tell if they were from here because of that dental work? I memory serves me, it seems like there were different dental techniques outside of the U.S. as in maybe different filling types and crown types???
