    It is utterly disgusting to hear his mother downplay the murder of 4 innocent human beings by attempting to justify his reasons with bully accusations. Furthermore... laughter does not equate to bullying, no matter what they were laughing about. PERIOD.

    Absolutely agree. I'm beyond disgusted by what I've heard from her and I don't think I can hear another word out of that delusional woman's mouth. She's trying to rationalize and justify every single death by blaming the victim and not her monster son. She's been refusing to see him for who he really is for a long, long time stemming from childhood and in her eyes it is never his fault. She's an extreme enabler that never gave him a second conscience, instead allowing him to do no wrong no matter the actions.

    I'm bringing this article from People over from another thread. I am really disturbed after reading about some of the police actions following the murders: http://people.com/crime/police-mish...ed-to-serial-killer-suspect-victims-families/

    "[FONT=&amp]Terry Guy, the husband of Beverly Guy and stepfather of Scott Ponder, tells PEOPLE Kohlhepp’s name was one of 15 highlighted on a list provided to police of 400 customers of the business, but that the 45-year-old real estate agent was never questioned."

    Why on earth did they never question him??? He was a RSO. All they had to do was look up his crime in Arizona and they'd know he has a propensity for violence.

    "[/FONT][FONT=&amp]Both Guy and Melissa Ponder, the wife of Scott Ponder, believe that alleged mishandling of DNA evidence at the crime scene hampered the investigation early on. [/FONT][FONT=&amp]More than a year after the shootings, authorities got a tip that Scott Ponder was sterile, even though his wife, Melissa, had recently had a baby. (The tip was later learned to be erroneous.) [/FONT][FONT=&amp]After extracting DNA from Melissa Ponder’s infant son’s diaper, police accused her of infidelity by claiming the DNA results indicated the boy had been fathered by another man — Brian Lucas, the shop employee killed alongside her husband. [/FONT][FONT=&amp]Melissa Ponder tells PEOPLE she “absolutely” considered herself a suspect in the murder when confronted with test results. “Their focus was so intent on me,” Ponder says."

    It turns out there was a mix-up between the DNA of BL and SP. The police were so focused on the DNA debacle, TK was able to slip away!!!

    Horrifying, isn't it? They spent 18 months pointing the fingers at her, and it was all because they DNA samples of two of the victims were mislabeled. I feel like TK lucked out with circumstances that allowed him to skate on through his crimes without ever being a suspect.

    10 years on, SC bike shop killings still unsolved
    By JEFFREY COLLINS Nov. 3, 2013 3:11 PM EST
    SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — After nearly 10 years and more than 750 leads, law enforcement officials and victims' families remain stumped in one of South Carolina's most heinous killings: A gunman who walked into a motorcycle shop, killed the owner and three employees, and slipped out undetected.

    Nov. 6 will mark a decade since the deaths at Superbike Motorsports in Spartanburg County, on a two-lane highway headed from the city toward the Blue Ridge Mountains. Sheriff Chuck Wright has vowed to get the killer off the street, but he now admits he may be waiting for a jailhouse confession...

    I think it would be worthwhile for someone w/ forum experience to investigate the sportbike forums online. I guarantee TK was on there, either "questioning" the SB shop murders or bragging about his bikes.

    His current bike is a Suzuki GSR 600, year 2007 (per Spartanburg Co tax records).

    I don't know what model the previous bike was.

    If he ever got good enough to actually ride, I guarantee he posted video of himself "riding the Dragon," up at Deal's Gap in NC. It's not far fm S'burg at all.

    (I highly doubt there's a cruiser connection. Sportbike egos like his rarely interact w/ Harley guys.)

    Huh... I didn't catch the year of his bike when I saw it previously. I wonder where he bought that one?

    CORRECTION
    Suzuki GSX-R62007

    ^That is how it is listed on the tax records, which are notoriously "off" for motorcycles.

    Suzuki generally refers to them as GSX-R600 or GSX-R b/c there's also a Yamaha R6. Sportbike riders usually want to keep their type of bike distinct from other brands/models.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzuki_GSX-R600 made from 1992-present

    Not clear how the tax records refer to "GSX-R62007" b/c that's not actually a model of bike, to my knowledge.

    EDIT some squirrelly guys call them "Gixxers."

    Do the tax records list the license plate, VIN number and when he registered it? Thanks.
