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. The mercenary actually was an undercover agent, and now 25-year-old racist LeCroy Brandon (Brandon Lecroy) has received criminal charges of attempted murder.
County Councilman Theo Lane, whose district Lecroy lives in, said he was glad the proper authorities were handling the investigation, and that he would keep a close eye on the case. "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'".
Speak To John Legend Using Google Assistant
This update is being done so that people don't get bored of the monotonous robotic voice that the Assistant already has. Perhaps the most exciting (and scary) feature coming to the Assistant is that it can make phone calls for you.
According to a federal complaint against him, Lecroy spoke with the undercover agent about the murder several times. Lecroy told the agent to use an untraceable 9mm handgun with two "clips", and offered the agent more jobs in the future. He also texted the agent a picture of the neighbor, who was identified in court documents only as "FJ".
Lecroy even let the agent in on his plans to take over the neighbor's property after his demise. After that meeting, Lecroy was arrested. The case was investigated by FBI agents and was assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney William J. Watkins Jr., of the Greenville office.
