I know somebody that was in prison with the gaffney strangler. he wanted to get the publicity that pee wee gaskins had, so he started talking at the mess hall tables all of the time about what he had done to these people. it was disgusting, and he was warned not to repeat the stories. he chose to do so, it started a fight, he was put in solitary confinement, got out, went back in and did the same thing! SO when he left and went through what is/was called 'the tunnel', he was shanked by the inmate that had last warned him.THAT is the truth.

Hey, I'm actually from Gaffney SC, and live not even a mile from where Abby Tyler and her dad was killed. The serial killer did nothing with the bodies. He left them laying there where he killed them, in their homes, the tyler store. He did nothing with them. He left them, for someone to find. He's a sick horrible man. With no motive to hurt this town.

What are you talking about? This discussion is about Leroy Martin aka The Gaffney Strangler. The recent serial killer was a sad situation but it has absolutely nothing to do with what we are talking about here.

My granny was his next victim. She road home with him ever night from the old mill they worked out. As he was wrested the police carelried him by the place that she was doing what she did daily at the mill. Leroy Martin aka the gaffney strangler looked my great grandmother in the eyes with a smile on his face and a laugh "You were tonight's victim!" Leroy killed more than four people my granny said atleast 5 went missing from the mill. My great grandmother died in 2008 with this thought on her mind. It bothered her everyday that she was his next victim if they would have not got him. Leroy Martin was hung to his death at the gaffney hanging post where now the log cabin is in the centerof town. It is said to be haunted waiting on his next victim!

A group of professional paranormal investigators in the upstate of south Carolina have decided to form a group. A like-minded group who's intent is to investigate famous allegedly haunted locations. We aim to validate/debunk these claims. We are available for private investigations at no cost. We are accompanied by an ordained minister who specializes in exorcism and demonology. We will also investigate personal possession claims. Contact us if you are experiencing any form of haunting.
