ORANGEBURG, S.C. (AP) - After more than 20,000 hours of investigating and more than 200 interviews, Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell says authorities are close to solving a homicide in which four people were killed a year ago.

Friday marks the anniversary of the slayings at a home outside of Holly Hill.

Seventeen-year-old Shamekia Sanders, 14-year-old Tamara Perry and 28-year-old Krystal Hutto were all found in bedrooms with bullet wounds to the head. Fifty-year-old Jerome Butler was found shot outside while an 8-year-old boy was critically injured.

Ravenell tells The Times and Democrat of Orangeburg (https://bit.ly/29zJC3cyt ) that anyone with information who doesn’t come forward will be charged as an accessory.

He says that whoever shot the victims intended on committing a crime but likely didn’t intend to kill everyone.
