If you're looking for the fine line between right and wrong, don't bother looking in Greenville, South Carolina. That line disappeared a long time ago, and no one has seen it since. Speaking of which, it's time for you to meet Bub.
In the South, you never know who might come calling. Some days, it's a pleasure, a friend with a gift, or an old love. On the worst days, it's the last unexpected guest you'll ever greet.
Many people have tried to re-write the history of what really happened in 1970's Greenville, SC. It's a lot harder to do that when somebody recorded that history as it happened...and held onto the tapes.
Police and prosecutors have always said the "word on the street" was that Charles Wakefield, Jr. murdered the Loopers. Police never mentioned, there was another word on the street. Police built an elaborate case against a man, and then had to dismantle it.
