Tiffany Souers Suspect
As a one-time and longtime crime journalist, I honestly thought I had put away the days of thinking constantly about a killer. After many, many years of thinking about and talking to murderers, I was sure I could live the rest of my life without becoming obsessed with the capture and conviction of a murderer.
I was wrong.
It has now been nine days since a friend found Tiffany Souers’ body in her apartment at The Reserve in Central, South Carolina. The 20-year-old Clemson student had been strangled with her own bikini top and left dead in her apartment. It happened somewhere around 1:30am.
Indeed, it has been nine days and I find myself checking the internet for updates five or six times a day. Someday, I suspect, I’ll better explore why I have taken such an interest in the case. For now, I’m actually on a mission and I think you folks are a diverse enough group to help me out.
See, the guy in the picture above stole Souers’ debit card and tried six times to get money in the hours after he apparently killed the co-ed. Hyper-aware of the security cameras, the dude (a white male) tied a bandana around both his head and face. After failing miserably all six times, the suspected killer took off in an older model (1982-1994) Chevy Blazer.
With only the car and the bandanas to go on, the cops have put out pictures (click here to see them all) and are hoping somebody can help them out.
As a guy who likes to think he can find just about anything on the Internet, I was fairly certain I’d be able to find the bandana online. Or something describing the stylized cross on the bandana. Or something. So far, I’ve found nada.
So, just to satisfy my curisoity, is there anybody reading that recognizes either the bandana or the cross?
