Murders

  • June 26, 1999 - Radio Shack employee Jonathan Lemuel Lara was restrained with flex ties to a chair in the back room of a Radio Shack in Greenville, South Carolina. Lara was stabbed in the neck with a screwdriver and subsequently died. Casandra Laster, Bounds' accomplice, was found guilty of accessory after the fact to felony murder in 2001. [1] [2] Laster appealed her sentence of 15 years but her appeal was dismissed in 2003 by the South Carolina Court of Appeals. Law enforcement had indicated to the court that she had not notified them of Bounds involvement until after he killed himself in December of 1999. [3]
  • December 22, 1999 - A florist was killed in the back room of a floral shop in Greenville.
  • December 23, 1999 - Bounds killed his girlfriend Sandy Roberts Ott and her ex-husband Timothy Ott in his girlfriend's ex-husband's home in Easley. Bounds fled the house and took refuge in a neighborhood several miles away, holding two women hostage. Bounds killed himself shortly thereafter through a gunshot to the head. [4]
