    SC - Five people daad in Cherokee County killing spree, June & July 2009

    http://www.foxcarolina.com/news/19927120/detail.html

    *snipped*

    FOX Carolina News reported that 83-year-old Hazel Keaton Linder, and her daughter, 50-year-old Gena Linder Parker, were both found fatally shot in their home at 114 Buck Shoals Road.

    Blanton said the last time the two victims were seen alive was at about 1 p.m. Wednesday.

    Blanton said if the deaths were linked to that of 63-year-old Kline Cash, a peach farmer found fatally shot at his home on June 27.

    Blanton said the FBI is involved in the investigation. Authorities said they believe the gunman is targeting women.

    Investigators said they think he was targeting Mrs. Cash but she wasn’t home at the time.

    More craziness from Gaffney

    http://www.foxcarolina.com/news/19933668/detail.html

    Another person dead and a teen girl shot in the head in a shooting at a Gaffney furniture store. That is four murders and one girl barely hanging on in this little town.

    Police are saying the earlier three shootings and tonight's shooting aren't related. Still, I don't think Gaffney has seen this kind of unrest since the Gaffney Strangler in the 60s.

    Good Lord! That Malvo idiot is still in prison, isn't he? I am referring to the one and his sidekick that shot all those people in Virginia and Maryland several years ago.

    This must be random shootings. I have driven through there a few times on I-85 and it seems like a nice place. There is a huge water tank painted like a peach somewhere near there - you can see it from I-85.

    GB the families of those who have been so senselessly murdered.

    Here is an article that has a composite of the suspect:
    http://www.wyff4.com/news/19927535/detail.html

    He is targeting women, and there is a lot of "physical evidence." I hate to think about it, but maybe bodily fluids? It's very frightening in this little town right now. A lot of people are holed up and nervous. That can be a dangerous thing in a tiny, gun-happy community like this one.

    Sheriff: Same person has killed 3 in northern SC


    GAFFNEY, S.C. – A sheriff says the shooting deaths of a peach farmer and two women in a rural South Carolina county the past week have been linked to the same killer.

    Cherokee County Sheriff Bill Blanton says investigators made the link after finding an 83-year-old woman and her 50-year-old daughter bound and shot to death Thursday in their home near Gaffney, about 50 miles south of Charlotte, N.C.

    The home isn't far from a house where peach farmer 63-year-old Kline Cash was shot to death Monday.

    Blanton didn't return several messages left for him or his deputies about a fourth killing reported in his county later Thursday.

    There are two vehicle descriptions:

    1. The dark blue van that was seen parked in the driveway of the home where Mrs. Linder and Mrs. Parker were shot about 30 minutes before the bodies were found.

    2. The second one is a two-door 1991 to 1994 Ford Explorer Sport, either gray or champagne in color. This one was driven by the suspect who stopped at the Cash residence and talked to Kline Cash about buying hay, at which point he encountered Mrs. Cash, and LE believe she was his target but she had left to run errands.

    LE is positive that the crimes are connected per the artcile Mr. E linked above: http://www.wyff4.com/news/19927535/detail.html

    It is odd that there are two vehicles involved. I think LE is positive the crimes are connected because ballistics probably proves the same weapon was used. There must have been a sexual component to the Linder/Parker case for LE to determine that the perp is targeting women. This article has some good information and paints a good description of how terrified the local residents are. This story reminds me of the early days of BTK.

    Now they're saying last night's shooting are related to the earlier shootings! This morning on the news they threw around the term "serial killer"!!! We are a community in shock and fear. The sheriff is issuing a statement at 11:00.

    http://www.wspa.com/spa/news/local/a...hooting/22551/

    The teen who was shot last night is a 15-year-old high school girl, and many people are saddened by this and frightened for her. I hope she pulls through, but I have heard some disturbing rumors.

    In the comment on the last link I gave, someone says that the woman in the blue SUV was not related to the shootings. She was high on crack and running from LE, and her death was from self-inflicted gunshot. I have heard related rumors, but I haven't seen this confirmed.

    ETA: Here is a link about last night's chase: http://www.wyff4.com/news/19933920/detail.html

    He's doing alot of planning and investing time with his victims. I don't know how much time he spent with the Hay for sale guy. The two women were bound in their homes. Then we have the below scenario for last night's victims.

    Several people on the scene said they were told a customer called Tyler to re-open the store because of a problem and meet with him. They said family and friends told them when Tyler did not return or respond to calls, his daughter went to the store to check on him.

    Is he only binding the female victims?

    Investigators don't know if the most recent shooting is related to three other fatal shootings within 10 miles of each other in the past six days, but sources have told WYFF News 4 that the two women who were killed on Wednesday were bound, and the teen at the furniture store was also bound, leading investigators to believe the shootings may all be connected.

    There has to be something that is happening to the female victims that made LE say early on that he is targeting the female victims. This is horrifying for the people who live in that area. Be careful Mr. E!!!!! He is definitely acting like a spree killer, but he is doing some sloppy things, like placing the phone call to the furniture store. LE has to be on that one hot and heavy looking at the source of that call.

    Maybe the Tyler's were listed in the phone book, interesting if not that he contacted them at home. I wonder if he dealt with a female earlier in the day and asked for her when he did make that call?

    I hope the next intended vic is well armed and takes this guy out.

    And think about it....how long did he hang around waiting for someone to show up looking for Mr. Tyler? How did he know it wouldn't be the cops?

    I have heard that he is binding female victims. The furniture store killing has me confused. Apparently he called Tyler and asked him to re-open the store. So if he is targeting women, how would he know that the young daughter would show up? Also, the other women killed were older (50s and older). The Tyler girl is 15.

    We're definitely being careful! Nobody is staying home alone (my two older girls are teens and often don't accompany us on errands), and everything is locked up tight. Also, I've been instructed by Mr. Mr. E not to open the door for anybody for any reason, and he's been calling home frequently.

    However, I know several people that own guns who are arming themselves. This scares me. I'm afraid someone innocent is going to get hurt out of fear.
