Hodges man faces charges in murder-for-hire investigation

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.

On March 20, Lecroy was recorded on the phone talking to an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who was ostensibly in on the plot, according to the affidavit. "During the conversation in March 2018, officials said Lecroy told the undercover agent, "$500 and he's a ghost".

Brandon Cory Lecroy, 25, allegedly attempted to hire a hit man to murder his black neighbor, hang the man from a tree and place a "flaming cross" in his yard, the Index-Journal reported. Additionally, he texted the agent a picture of the neighbor to ensure he killed the right person. Lecroy gave information on when it would be best to commit the killing and talked about plans to take over his neighbor's property, the complaint says. He said he wanted a "ghost gun" that couldn't be traced, and said he "has more jobs for him in the future".

Lecroy even met with the agent and put down an $100 down payment for the crime. He could receive 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted. Spartanburg Detention Center records show that he was arrested the next day by a U.S. Marshall.
