Man accused of trying to hire hit man to kill black neighbor

  • South Carolina man 25 tried to enlist white supremacists to kill his black neighbor for $500

He allegedly reached out to a white supremacists group to hire a hit man.

The suspect apparently wanted his Black neighbor killed and the Federal Bureau of Investigation shortly began investigating Lecroy once a private source said the man tried to enlist a white supremacist to commit murder for hire, U.S. Attorney's Office announced on Tuesday.

Unbeknownst to him, however, one of the white supremacists he spoke to was an Federal Bureau of Investigation informant.

Lecroy told the agent he wanted "hang his neighbor from a tree" and have a "burning cross" staked in the front yard.

"Federal prosecutors say Lecroy sent photos of the neighbor to the undercover officer and said "$500 and he's a ghost".

A probable cause affidavit doesn't say how Lecroy came in contact with the undercover agent, or why he allegedly wanted his neighbor dead.

"Five hundred dollars and he's a ghost", Lecroy said during the phone call, according to the court document.

He also mentioned he might want to have more people killed later if the hitman could get the first job done, an affidavit said.

The two met April 9, when Lecroy pointed out his neighbor's home in the small SC town of Hodges, talked about future targets and gave the agent a $100 down payment, the complaint says.

Lecroy should also be charged with making a terroristic threat, though his white privilege apparently worked even when he was clearly committing a crime.

A magistrate judge on April 10 ordered a psychiatric or psychological evaluation for Lecroy to determine whether he's competent to stand trial. It wasn't immediately clear where Lecroy was being held. If found guilty, Leroy could face up to 10 years in prison and $250,00 in fines.
