The real question is why was a Refuse Control employee wearing a county-issued bullet-proof vest when stopping at the home of a female acquaintance?  Is this common in South Carolina?

Ok, so who was cheating on who?

Um, how do we know how he died? If only there was some guy with a job who could tell us for sure.

Wouldn't you shoot a man who cuts people open all day and then stores the remains in his freezer for later use?

FTFA:If you or someone you love is battling depression or suicide, there are resources available to you.

How about if they are battling murder, murder, suicide?  Are there resources for that because I think that is where this was headed if not for a little bit of luck.

According to this, the deputy coroner was romantically involved with the woman.

Come on, who doesn't put on a county issued bullet-proof vest when going to visit female acquaintance.

obviously there is more to the story than what the article says. My theory: coroner guy was in a relationship with the woman, found out she was cheating on him, called her to say he's coming to confront her. She informed her lover who came prepared knowing the guy has a police issued gun.

From that article it seems the woman dumped the shooter, maybe even started dating the litter guy. I'd venture a guess that the litter guy saved her life by providing himself as a target.

Deputy coroner on leave for issues related to being dumped shows up at her house, likely unannounced, with a gun? That was his primary target. The suicide part was gonna happen anyway.

He had a county-issued gun as well.

I suspect it's for when the Litter folks have to serve a clean-up notice to a severe hoarder, or to someone with 12 broken-down vehicles in their front yard.  The ones who think, "It's mah property, I'll do wut ah wunt with it!  Fark y'all!!"

Of course, the smarter thing would be to bring a few sheriffs along with you.  Show of force, if you will.

If he's the deputy, wouldn't the county have a Chief Coroner?

This:

"I can't tell you what Mr. Bradley's intent was other than he probably would have killed both of them," Lott said.

Is a brilliant deduction. Well done.
 
2018-01-12 04:12:21 PM  
So I guess if the coroner is murdered, he shows up at work one last time?

"Brown pulled his gun but never fired it, Lott said. Instead, one of Bradley's shots struck Brown's gun and injured Brown's finger."

I really want to see a follow up after both victims give their story. Very lucky to live after being disarmed and shot. Were they far away from each other and he managed to run or hide? Did the woman run like hell and get far away or pull a horror movie move and hide in the house? It sounds like they made the right decisions to survive a crazy person like that. I know a random murder isn't normally news but this could be murder mystery show quality stuff.

The County Coroner was in the press release, there are other deputy coroners.  Besides, if he was the only coroner, the state could handle the case.  I'm with ya, silly joke attempt.
