Unsolved murder at Blue Ridge Savings Bank: Family turns to social media

See also

An upstate South Carolina murder remains unsolved, and now the family is turning to social media for help in finding the killer. Fox Carolina reported the story May 14.

It's difficult to believe 11 years have passed since the murders at Blue Ridge Savings Bank in Greer. On May 16, 2003, bank teller Sylvia Holtzclaw, along with customers Eb and Maggie Barnes, were murdered in cold blood.

Despite a thorough investigation by local police and the FBI, including video footage taken along Interstate 85, no one has ever been charged with the crime.

Now David Holtzclaw has turned to social media to help find his mother's killers. David has gone so far as to post a video on YouTube, where his plea to share this unsolved murder will hopefully lead to a suspect.

"Not a day goes by that I don't wake up in the morning or go to bed at night thinking about her. There's so many things she's missed over the years."

Someone out there has to know something. Eleven years is a long time to live with the guilt, or the knowledge that someone you know did this.

The family hopes this case will soon have some answers, which is possible if every one of you will share David's story with every one of your friends.

David doesn't know whether the person who took three innocent lives that day may live 15 minutes, or 15 hours from him. He and his family want to see justice served.
