Update 6:58 PM: The man killed Dallas, North Carolina is indeed the Gaffney Serial Killer. His name is Patrick Tracy Burris. More in an updated post here. They reported it on CNN, but we broke the story here 30 minutes earlier. There was a press conference at 8-9 PM EST June 6. Identification was reportedly made by ballistics tests. The killer was still in possession of the .25 pistol that was used in the killings. At 2:30 AM in Dallas, North Carolina, a man saw a vehicle matching the description of the Gaffney Serial Killer’s car back into a shabby garage at an abandoned home across the street. A man got out, wearing a ballcap and resembling the sketch of the killer. He was stumbling, appeared to be drunk, and had two people with him. He called 9-11. Dallas is 28 miles northeast of Gaffney, South Carolina, where a serial killer killed 5 people over a week recently. Police arrived and found that the home is vacant. However, three people were in the home. Two were related. Their names are Mark Stamey, 35 and his sister, Sharon Stamey, 31. They were with a big older man. Mark Stamey said he only knew that the man’s name was Patrick. Police arrived at 2:40 AM after a report about a possible burglary in process, because the home is vacant. When officers arrived, they started questioning the three people. Patrick Burris gave them false identification. When they found out his real name, they ran it and found that Burris had a warrant out for his arrest from Lincoln County. Lincoln County is just north of Gaston County. An altercation took place inside the house, and Burris drew a gun and shot the officer in the foot. The officer, J.K. Shaw, drew his weapon and shot and killed Burris. Police arriving at the scene found a rifle like the one stolen and murder victim Cash Kline’s home in addition to a .25 pistol. At that point, they called in South Carolina LE to see if the dead man was the Gaffney Serial Killer. The vehicle parked in front of the house is gold-colored Ford Explorer, a close match for the vehicle that the Gaffney Serial Killer was driving. Police are now saying that the dead man is the Gaffney Serial Killer. Mark and Sharon Stamey have been arrested on unknown charges. Both have prior criminal records. Sharon Rose Stamey is due to appear in Gaston County Court on July 7 on charges on cocaine distribution. Sharon Stamey’s rap sheet is here. Doper and a petty thief. Shaw has been treated and released for his gunshot wounds.
