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

This man tried to hire a white supremacist to 'hang' his black neighbor 'from a tree'

A SC man may face up to 10 years in prison after he plotted to murder his Black neighbor by reaching out to a white supremacist group.

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.

According to the indictment, Lecroy made an arrangement with an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent to pay for the murder of his neighbor.

Would California solar mandate burn home buyers?
It typically approves recommendations from the Energy Commission, so it's seen as a virtual lock to gain that final approval. About 117,000 new single-family homes and 48,000 multi-family units will be built in 2020, the commission estimates .

"LeCroy sent the pictures to a neighbor undercover officer and the message: "$ 500, and he's a Ghost".

Lecroy told the agent he wanted "hang his neighbor from a tree" and have a "burning cross" staked in the front yard.

Lecroy gave the money "with acknowledgment that this payment was for the murder of his neighbor", court documents said, according to the Post & Courier.

Rodney Hood expressed remorse, won't be disciplined by Cavs
In the Cavs' 10 playoff games, he has averaged 4.6 points per game on 39.6% shooting and just 13.3% from three-point range. The Cavaliers will meet the victor of the Boston Celtics-Philadelphia 76ers series in the Eastern Conference Finals.

In a phone call two days later, Lecroy reaffirmed the agreement and gave the undercover agent "further intelligence on when to best ... commit the murder as well as plans to take over the victim's property", the affidavit says. Officials said Lecroy put down a $100 down payment for his neighbor's murder.

Lecroy should also be charged with making a terroristic threat, though his white privilege apparently worked even when he was clearly committing a crime.

Lecroy has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric examination and is being held at a federal prison hospital, the news source reported. If found guilty, he could face up to 10 years in prison and $250,000 in fines. His attorney did not immediately respond to a Law&Crime request for comment.
