Man Wanted in S.C. Slaying Arrested in Wayne County

Posted August 2, 2007

— A man wanted in connection with a South Carolina slaying was arrested Thursday in Wayne County, authorities said.

Eddie Emanuel McCoy was arrested on U.S. Highway 13 North on a fugitive warrant and is being held without bond in the Wayne County Detention Center while awaiting extradition.

McCoy is charged in Dillon, S.C., with first-degree murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and possessing a firearm during a violent crime. The charges stem from a 2005 shooting that left a man in a coma for two years before his recent death.

    the whole truth is this..... This guy works for my husband as a truck driver, doesn't live here in Wayne Co, just is dispatched here. What amazes everyone is why are they just now pressing charges, it happened 2 yrs ago. just upgraded to murder because he died just recently. Why was nothing done at the time of the incident, a crime was still committed?

    Goldsboro (Wayne County) is becoming a haven for criminals. I'm glad that caught him.

    Why do people think they can kill a person and act as if they have done nothing; like "so-what" I killed somebody. I just don't understand. They apparently don't have a conscious anymore.

    Glad they got him. Now hoping he is never released again if he is guilty of this crime. One less psycho off the streets.
