THE TRUE STORY OF HOW THE PROSECUTION FAILED A GRIEVING FAMILY, THE LAWYERS FAILED THE DEFENDANT, LAW ENFORCEMENT FAILED A COMMUNITY, AND THE PRIVATE INVESTIGATOR WHO DECIDED THE COVER-UP HAD TO END.
The investigation into the death of Dr. Harry Sunshine exposes the corrupt underbelly of the South Carolina criminal prosecution system, and the corrupt acts of the three largest police agencies in the state.
The local media reported the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED), SC Highway Patrol, and the Richland County Sheriff’s Department were looking for a white Lexus in the hit and run that killed Dr. Sunshine. This red herring was pursued for almost a month until the wife of the slain doctor was approached by a witness, who after having been ignored by the sheriff’s department, told Mrs Sunshine that she saw a black Lexus in the vicinity of the crime at the time of the accident. The black Lexus was occupied by a black female driver and a black male passenger. The authorities did not plan for this revelation which set into motion a cover up and persecution of a man who was never involved in this accident.
After the witness gave her statement, authorities found a wrecked 1993 Lexus on the lot of Hi-Line Imports in Columbia, S.C. however, The authorities did not take a statement from the owner of Hi-Line until a month later, and by then 1993 Lexus disappeared from the lot and the investigation.
When a statement was taken, the owner pointed out that he sold a black 1994 Lexus to Charles Outlaw a few days before Sunshine was killed.
Unknown to Charles, or the public, the initial suspect was John E. (Johnny) Brown, the boyfriend of Charles’ mother-in-law. Now the authorities had to quickly arrest Charles and his wife Tshona, accuse them of involvement, pressure Charles to take a quick plea and have him give a false statement implicating his wife, and let them take the fall.
Also unknown to Charles, Tshona was going to take a plea and implicate herself to protect John Brown. After the plea Tshona would tell fellow inmates that she was expecting a big payoff when she got out of prison.
Things were allowed to happened in order to protect the identity of the persons who were actually in the 1993 Lexus which struck Dr. Sunshine. These were very powerful men, and the original suspect was affiliated with members of the system in ways which were to be kept secret at any cost.
