There is a book about it you can find it at the gaffney library. It tells about it all. That anyone knew about anyway. He lived in a little house over off of sixth street and if I am not mistaken he died in prison!

You have gotten wrong info here. Leroy Martin was sentenced to life in prison where he was killed by a fellow inmate.

blondebaby09, where did you get this info? Leroy Martin was sentenced to live in prison, where he was killed by a fellow inmate. He had been in solitary confinement, shortly after being released from solitary confinement, he was killed.

I'm confused as well. The first article I read re: the strangler stated that he died in prison-was killed by another inmate. Then I came across the article in the spartanburg herald that in 2005 his remains may have been found by the high school student. I guess it turned out not to be? Search Google images for Gaffney Strangler you will see the story.

Blondebaby09 is correct. Leroy Martin was sentenced to live in prison and was serving that sentence when I taught basic adult education at the SC Central Correctional Institution in Columbia in 1968-1969. For several weeks, he was a student in my class. He was returned to solitary confinement because of an incident with another inmate. Years later, after I left SC, I read he was killed by another inmate.
I recently saw the 2005 Spartanbug newspaper article. I have no idea what that is about. It must be bogus.

I was just reading an article about
Lee Roy Martin. He did die in prison, shortly after he was sentenced to 30 years; was killed by another inmate. Article said the last victim's sister identified him after he kidnapped her sister. Martin had the audacity to come to that victim's house and asked their father if he could help in finding the person who had taken his daughter. Upon seeing Martin at her house, the sister who ID'd him screamed and said he was the kidnapper, but no one believed her because she had been given a sedative to calm her down, after witnessing her sister's kidnapping. They did find him shortly after that.

The writer of the BS article is Susan Caldor. She also said there were 2 shows on AMW in 1993 about another manhunt for Martin. According to his autopsy report, Martin was already located in 1972. Stupid reporters.

Yeah I just read up on that Peewee Gaskins fellow. It's truly sad how our justice system works. Here is a guy that killed dozens of innocent folks(he claimed 181), including children and even young babies, and all he got for it was life in prison.

It wasnt until he killed a fellow immates(who was on death row) that he got the death penelty himself.

The lives of those dozens of innocent victims meant nothing to the state, but they'll be damned if you kill another murderous immate. Then you surely deserve the death penelty.
