I hear Mark Cassidy and his father from swansea were arrested. I hear they found her dna in the truck he drove back then.

I'm glad they found them...the combination of science, technology and good old-fashioned police work is absolutely amazing! I know this won't bring her back, but at least the family will have SOME (certainly not ALL) the answers they were looking for.

Strange twist in this story...Sheriff Metts said part of this Hutto guy's MO was to eat Vienna sausages and drink beer at the houses he broke into. How WEIRD is that?!?!

Who ever killed this beautiful woman should rot in jail for the rest of their life. And what took so long for Metts to arest the others. Nothing against Metts, but this is the second case that has come out recently that it has taken him 15-21 years to do something about. Maybe I just do not know how the system works.

Sometimes,they want to make sure they have plenty of evidence to properly nail these criminals.

maybe its just me, but it seems abundently clear that unless Metts is pressured to do anything, a crime or ongoing illegal activities go without notice. Its a shame when the media has to get involved to force the man to do the right thing.
(LIKE HIS JOB) its time for a NON good'ol boy as a new sheriff. Living in the Pelion area I can tell you first hand there is no lxington cnty presence... anything goes...and they wonder why violent crimes and meth labs rule out there.
im not blaming the officers, they get their marching orders every morning.
im done venting

If that Dykes be the Jimmy Dykes, he is a registered child molester in Lexington County. The best medicine for these fellows is not having the tax payer pay for their room and board, but to give them the same treatment Johnnie Ringo gave Sherm McMasters in the movie "Tombstone"- a good "dutch ride" accross some pretty inhospitable terrain!!!

Bubba Dykes was not arrested for her murder...He's been in jail for not paying child support. Get the facts before pointing fingers at people.

Bubba Dykes wasn't arrested for Lisa's murder, he's been in jail for the past year for not paying child support. Get your facts right before pointing fingers.

It's a shame that media coverage carries more weight than evidence. No one could bring Lisa back, but to let her family knowingly suffer since 1992 is incomprehensible and whomever is responsible for letting this case go on far too long should be held accountable. VOTE! VOTE! VOTE! If our elected officials can't do the job without television cameras forcing action, it's time for them to be voted out of office!

It is time for James Metts to Go!! It is obvious he is not doing his job. Were they just going tp pin it on the Hutto Guy because it made his job easy? Why has it taken so long for the arrest of these other two when the evidence has been there all along?? Did someone pay someone to sweep this under the rug? It is scary knowing these things are happening. Had the family had not applied preasure through the media,these men still be walking free!
