Thanks Mayfairlight for the 1977 newspaper article...very interesting. I read months back, truck driver, Henry had told LE his brother 'gave' him the pistol for Christmas several years before the murders.... Hmmm! my question is: was the stolen pistol really a gift? I found the following very enlightening... The article says: Sheriff Parnell says the (.357) gun has been traced to a 1974 theft of several weapons in Durham, North Carolina... My question is: Was the 1974 gun theft in Durham, NC. ever solved? WAS stealing guns in the home break-in and the murder and robbery of the couple in S.C. all done by the same people???? there was definitely a stolen Smoking Gun! It's my good common sense opinion H. and his brother should have been throughly investigated in connection to both cases... Where there's Smoke there's Fire!
