    Oh no :(

    Prayers that Margaret comes home safe. How scary! I hate how common home invasions are becoming now days..

    I live about 60 miles from where this happened. I'll definitely be on the lookout for the car and Margaret.

    There is not a lot of information yet.
    Why would they take a 78 yr old woman?
    If it is a home invasion, why not
    just take her money or valuables
    and leave her alone?

    Prayers for Ms Gooding.

    It's horrible - kidnapping an elderly person, and crimes against the elderly in general. Poor woman must have been so frightened. I'm so glad this had a happy ending.

    Family members of 78-year-old Margaret Gooding say she was found in the trunk of a car about 30 miles away in a Walterboro parking lot.

    .....

    "The neighbor called and said he had heard a gunshot, and so my wife checked and couldn't get her, so she called 911," said her brother-in-law, Oddis Gooding.

    "Officers responded to a call out here this morning about 1am, upon responding they saw some things that weren't quite in order, then their the investigation started," said Hampton County sheriff T.C. Smalls.

    Investigators say Gooding was shot in the stomach but found alive and conscious in the trunk of a car around 4pm Monday.

    .....

    Family members tell WTOC she was talking and was taken to MUSC in Charleston. She was last listed in stable condition.

    "They have found her, she was located in Walterboro, I think she was in the mall, I'm not sure which mall, but she was alive in the trunk of the car," said Oddis Gooding. "

    ...

    There is still no information on any possible suspects, but investigators say they are looking for persons of interest.

    I do not know if this is related BUT there were several Hampton County Sheriff's cars at the High School this morning.
    OTOH it could be for another reason ( ie, we have had several gang shootings recently)

    thanks for the info -- please keep us updated.

    I haven't found any updates on the search for the a-holes who did this to her...can you imagine lying in the hospital, so vulnerable recovering from GSWs -- wondering if the POIs will come back to finish ya off???

    What a strong woman she must be. And blessings to those who kept searching until they found her in that trunk.

    Lock 'em up and throw away the key.

    So far I have no info on the High School, BUT I have some firsthand info ..

    I, again, am only speculating here..( I guess I should put my location to show that I am in Walterboro SC where she was found)
    Where her car was found was a single block from one of the last shootings. Depressed area,in fact, in was within a few blocks of where the shootings started.

    AND OMG there was a carjacking just last night
    http://www.live5news.com/Global/story.asp?S=8587219


    You have to realize, the "town" is 5 minutes (by car) wide. I live in a nice middle class neighborhood, but I am in walking distance of the "bad area". It is the largest county in SC, but this town is rather small. Everyone knows everyone.

    COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - A state of emergency has not been declared in Walterboro and surrounding Colleton County, but the community will get increased security from SLED, the ATF, US Marshals and local police. Between Monday and Wednesday night, 11 people have been shot and three were killed.

    .....

    The Colleton County Sheriff's Office said deputies will be working around the clock to ensure the safety of residents.

    "Stay inside, keep their loved ones inside, that would be very helpful," Sheriff George Malone said. :waitasec:




    http://www.live5news.com/Global/story.asp?S=11489032

    Ms. Margaret *was* inside from what we've heard-- and she obviously was *not* safe!!!

    Question -- is SLED, ATF & the US Marshals still involved in keeping the community safe??? It sounds like it's not just Colleton County having problems!!

    Nope.It's not. I have been invited to a symposium on local crime. I will let you know how that goes. Without wanting to offend anyone here, I am an upper middle class white female. I have 3 kids and 2 grands. I was asked to speak at a recent meeting on gang violence. When I questioned why, I, of all was I asked, I was told that I was in the MINORITY in the county and they needed to hear from me.
    Apparently they liked what I had to say, because this next meeting is with the Governor.
