CARL CASHION “BUB” SKELTON
Carl Cashion “Bub” Skelton signed on with the Greenville County Sheriff’s Office in the 1950s. By the early 1970s, despite never having been elected to office, some people would argue Skelton had power than anyone in Greenville County. The election of 1972 upset Bub’s balance of power. So, Bub created a new balance that would eventually haunt Greenville County for another half-century.
THE LEONARD BROWN TAPES
In the 1970’s, Leonard Brown, Sr. recorded hundreds of hours of tapes of conversations with people who went on to be Greenville County legends on both sides of the law. In 2019, his son Leonard Brown, Jr. went to work restoring those tapes for Murder, etc. What we found on those tapes has driven this investigation this far and will likely continue to do so for years to come.
