POLICE: PROFESSOR KILLED BY HIS EX-WIFE

|| By FITSNEWS || Moments after an investigator provided this website with the name of the woman responsible for this week’s University of South Carolina murder-suicide (prompting a flurry of exchanges between our news desk and local and state law enforcement officials), the shooter’s name was released by Richland County (S.C.) coroner Gary Watts.

Sung Hee Kwon, 46 – of Lexington County, S.C. – is the alleged killer of USC associate professor Raja Fayad, who was shot multiple times this week before Kwon reportedly turned the gun on herself.  The two were once married and owned a home together, according to county property records.

The shooting is the second murder-suicide to rock the Columbia, S.C. campus in the last four months.  In November, a murder-suicide at an off-campus housing facility claimed the life of a 20-year-old Diamoney Greene, a USC criminology student.

FITS was the first media outlet to report that both incidents were murder-suicides – and we were the first outlet to identify the victim in this week’s shooting.

We will continue to provide updates on the story as we receive them.  Of course if you’re looking for breathless, blubbery sensationalism geared to a specific target market, check out one of Columbia, S.C.’s four local television stations (WLTX TV 19, WOLO TV 25, WACH TV 57 or WIS TV 10).

They should have you covered …

After being identified as Sung Hee Kwon no news site has shown a photo of her. I’d like to see what she looks like.

You mean we should be careful with dating the Asian beauties advertised in all these pop-up ads. I thought they were supposed to be meek and submissive.

SC is ranked # 2 in Domestic Violence Cases – period!! Doesn’t matter is you are a man, a woman, married, dating or ant combination of the above. 70% of those Domestic Violence Cases that end in death have fire arms involved – just an FYI. Oh and for the record we are also # 2 in the number of women killed by men!

So you’re saying the SC is really Progressive/Equal Opportunity when it comes to domestic violence?

PRO TIP:
If you don’t know the answer…it’s ok to just say so. No need to (non-relevant) info dump on us.

I could check out the local broadcasts for some sensationalism, or I could just read Liz Gunn’s piece here on FITS…maybe they didn’t play dodgeball wherever the shooter grew up.
But I am glad to see the young generation reaches now into your mid-40’s. Helps me feel younger.

I work for the university and was close to the building when it happened; chaotic. I love how this topic brings out the gun nuts. Professor Shoots His Ex-wife in Botched Murder Attempt is the headline they would have gotten. Perhaps we would only have one dead if concealed or open carry was allowed on campus, who knows? I do know this much: every single time a shooting happens these people start talking about gun free zones and everyone being a target ad infinitum BEFORE THEY KNOW THE FACTS. Perhaps people that jump the gun on such things might not be the best ones to be carrying guns in the first place? Nothing like a presumtiuous concealed carrier. Whatever NRA dudes, I digress. Fits is great and all, but what the hell is up with announcing every exclusive no matter how trivial? Weak.

$10 says Sun Hee was anti-gun before she decided to shoot her ex.

How that would relate to my comment in any way is beyond me. I never implied she was pro or anti, nor did I say all people that carry are idiots. Ive been shot at, but I don’t carry because I choose not to. Statistically speaking, gun advocates don’t really have a leg to stand on, but I would never suggest someone be denied their RIGHT to bear arms to protect themselves and their families. Carry or don’t, but chill the hell out about people coming to take your guns, etc. If it is of such vital importance carry whenever and wherever you like, take a chance, it’s a matter of life and death anyway right?

“How that would relate to my comment in any way is beyond me.”

“I love how this topic brings out the gun nuts.”

Your above sentence shows how it relates, given her background, she probably wasn’t a gun nut, but by your implied logic should have been one of the “best ones to be carrying guns “(not a “gun nut” in your words)

“Nothing like a presumtiuous concealed carrier. Whatever NRA dudes, I digress.”

Those are my favorite two sentences in your statement.

Before this degenerated into the shooter was Ho Lee Phook & the victim was Sum Ting Wong- let me say these were two human brings who had been married and the female decided til death do us part … Was literally gonna happen
However. On my ex wife’s next birthday. I think she might get some flowers.
Criminal domestic violence is certainly nothing to make light of though. South carolina women have been Ill treated by this state. To say the least.

“Of course if you’re looking for breathless, blubbery sensationalism” If the events had occurred at Clemson, Sic Willie would be the purveyor of this at FITSNEWs.

You and your thin-skinned brethren need to STFU. Two people are dead and all you can do is bring up your whiney, boo-hoo bullshit. Some things are more important than a football rivalry. Go bitch on a Clemson alum’s blog or TigerNet. Or better yet, take a cue from some of the classy Clemson students and show some solidarity with SC students (you know, Carlsjr and USCe…dumbass).
