Chesnee Motorcycle Store Murders Remain Unsolved 12 Years Later

Friday marked the 12-year anniversary of one of the upstate’s most notorious unsolved murders.

Four people were shot to death at a Spartanburg County motorcycle store on November 6, 2003.

With every year that passes, the files get thicker, and the tips keep coming, but there is still no closure for Tom and Lorraine Lucas.

The Lucas’s son, Brian, was shot to death at Superbike Motorsports in Chesnee, along with 3 co-workers.

On this anniversary, the Lucas’s met with Terry Guy, the husband and step father to two other victims, Beverly Guy and Scott Ponder.

Lorraine said her facebook page is full of current tips, and yet these family members feel strongly that the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office is not pursuing every lead.

The families said they feel they cannot trust the local authorites, and are loosing hope.

Brandon Letterman, the cold case investigator at the Sheriff’s office, said he’s sympathetic to the families’ frustrations and wants to get them answers.

He said that they do everything they can on every tip that comes in, no matter what the relation to the case.

The sheriff’s office said it has opened up the “Superbike” murder case to other law enforcement agencies and has given state investigators full access to the files.

A $25,000 reward is still being offered for information leading to an arrest.

Chris Sherbert’s family could not be reached for this story. He was the first person killed that day.
