Greg Leon Guilty Verdict, Green Pond Massacre – Week In Review 7/8/2023

Prominent South Carolina restauranteur convicted in 2016 Valentine’s Day murder …

For the past three weeks, our Dylan Nolan has been providing exemplary gavel-to-gavel coverage of the Greg Leon murder trial in Lexington County, South Carolina. This saga had no shortage of surprise twists and turns – including some curveball testimony, an ensuing mistrial motion and a rapidly returned verdict.

The prominent Midlands, South Carolina restauranteur was found “guilty” in this high-profile homicide – which occurred on Valentine’s Day 2016 and resulted in the death of 28-year-old Arturo Bravo, the lover of Leon’s wife, Rachel Leon.

In addition to his in-depth coverage throughout this murder trial, Dylan offered some incredible post-trial analysis in this week’s episode …

Another huge story we covered this week was the Green Pond Massacre, a stabbing/ arson incident out of Colleton County, S.C. that left six people dead and one person – an incredibly courageous 13-year-old – seriously injured.



This case is just beginning to unfold, but early reports from the charred crime scene on Folly Creek Road truly chill the blood. Keep it tuned to this news outlet for more on this story as we expect additional charges to be forthcoming against 33-year-old Ryan Lenard Manigo of Walterboro, S.C. Manigo is already facing two counts of murder and one count of attempted murder in this case.

Finally, our show ended with an appeal to the public for help in solving an unsolved mystery on James Island, S.C. Last month, 34-year-old Jenn Drummond was left for dead in the middle of Woodland Shores Road approximately three miles southwest of the Charleston peninsula – the victim of a horrific head wound which was apparently inflicted upon her just feet from her driveway.

Miraculously, Jenn survived thanks to the help of a good samaritan, emergency responders and the medical staff attending to her.

As she fights to recover, Drummond’s family continues fighting for answers … and hopefully someone watching our show (or one of the many other media outlets reporting on this story) has them.
