Man accused of murder-for-hire plot in Greenwood Co

White man wanted to hire hit man to kill black neighbor feds

Authorities say a white SC man thought he was offering $500 to a hit man to kill his black neighbor, hang his body from a tree and burn a cross on his lawn - but he was mistaken. He faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted. "VIDEO: "Middle school vehicle vandalized with swastikas in Castro Valley The affidavit did not explain why Lecroy allegedly wanted to kill his neighbor, but he did tell the officer "$500 and he's a ghost".

Federal investigators say they learned of Brandon Cory Lecroy's plan in March after a confidential informant told them that the 25-year-old had reached out to a white supremacist organization and said he needed help to kill his neighbor, a federal complaint says. He also instructed the agent to leave a "flaming cross" in the yard and "hang his neighbor from a tree". The defendant even sent this agent pictures and names of two targets, including the neighbor.

Later he also asked if the undercover agent could get him a 9mm "ghost gun" that would be untraceable.

Court documents show that the accused through a group of supporters of the white movement sought a Hitman to murder living next door African American.

The Versa even offers fitness guidance via Fitbit Coach and allows for swim tracking, boasting a water-resistance up to 50 meters. Fitbit has announced that two anticipated features will soon arrive for owners of either the Fitbit Versa or Fitbit Ionic .

A couple days later, Lecroy and the agent scheduled the murder. He then met with the undercover official on April 9, put down a $100 cash advancement "with acknowledgment that this payment was for the murder of his neighbor" and was arrested that same day.

A federal grand jury indicted a Greenwood County man on murder-for hire charges on Tuesday.

A message left for Lecroy's attorney, Federal Public Defender Erica Marie Soderdahl, was not immediately answered.
