The gruesome execution of four innocent lives in 2003, remains an unsolved cold case more than 8 years later. On February 11, 2011 the parents of Brian Lucas, Tom and Lorraine Lucas, were in the Zeus Radio studio live to discuss the unsolved murders at the Superbike Motorsports Store in Chesnee, SC in 2003.
Coroner’s investigator, Alan Mason, says sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about 3:15 p.m. and found the bodies of three men and a woman at Superbike Motorsports, a bike shop in western Spartanburg County, about 15 miles north of Spartanburg. A customer found the bodies and called authorities, Sheriff Bill Coffey said. Two of the victims were found inside the shop and two were found in the front doorway, authorities said. All four victims were shot multiple times, Mason said.
“Mid-afternoon on November 6th, 2003, a customer found Superbike owner Scott Ponder, and his close friend,shop manager Brian Lucas, dead outside the front of the business.
Could this have been a drug deal gone bad? Is there a personal connection to an investigating detective on the case and a murder suspect? Did a tipster call into the tip line and provide specific details of the murders? Was the person who called in the information to authorities the driver (wheel man) that day?
Is the fact that a Spartanburg Detective on the case (with the initials w.g) and a close schoolmate from their days at Boiling Springs, High School, are covering-up for the alleged mastermind and shooter of the four employees the reason this case has remained unsolved?
The million dollar question, "Why hasn't anyone been arrested?"
The families have literally been circle jerked around by the Spartanburg Investigators on this case. Here's a concept, how about the Attorney General's Office appoint a special prosecutor and/or have a fresh new set of eyes, not associated or connected to the shooter, for a proper investigation of this case.
In March of 2012, John Walsh, host of America's Most Wanted, featured the case on the program highlighting the new sketch of a person authorities are interested in finding.
The person of interest in the sketch above is a white man between the ages of 25 and 40 about 6 feet tall and weighing between 175 and 200 pounds. He had dark brown hair.
A $25,000 reward is still being offered.
