NBC TO AIR FEATURE ON LOWCOUNTRY MURDER-FOR-HIRE SCANDAL
By FITSNews || Dateline NBC will air an exclusive report on a murder-for-hire plot in Charleston, S.C. that briefly landed on our radar last year due to its proximity to suspended Speaker of the S.C. House Bobby Harrell.
The case centers around a traffic stop initiated in April 2013 by Charleston, S.C. police officer Daniel Wilson.
Wilson stopped a man by the name of Aaron Wilkinson and found a loaded gun in his car – at which point the suspect confessed to being part of a plot to murder Nancy Latham, the wife of Lowcountry banker Chris Latham.
“I’m here to shoot a bitch,” Wilkinson allegedly told the officer.
Nancy Latham was appointed by Harrell to the S.C. Lottery Commission. She was in the middle of a contentious divorce with Chris Latham, who was having an affair with one of his subordinates, Wendy Moore.
Moore, Wilkinson, and Chris Latham were all convicted for conspiring to kill Nancy Latham, while a fourth defendant – Moore’s ex-husband – killed himself in police custody.
Because it was a federal case, the inmates were permitted to grant interviews to Dateline. Inmates at South Carolina facilities are not permitted to speak to members of the media (although they’re apparently allowed to do all sorts of other stuff).
Dubbed “The Charleston Affair,” the preview for the episode was posted earlier this week. The episode itself will air at 9:00 p.m. EDT on Friday September 19.
Should be good …
