The Looper Murders investigators never considered one man a suspect…even if generations of cops still do.
A Bunch of Amateurs is based on a quote from 1975 Greenville County Sheriff Cash Williams who, just a few weeks before Frank Looper’s murder, said his county didn’t have an organized crime problem. Sheriff Williams said his county only had to worry about a bunch of amateurs. For more, read the show notes or listen to the episode above.

A Bunch of Amateurs is based on a quote from 1975 Greenville County Sheriff Cash Williams, who said his county didn’t have an organized crime problem.
It begins with a bungled drug crime that took place four weeks before Frank Looper died, and it introduces the infamous Greenville drug thief and drug dealer behind it, Jackie Delk.
Listeners are then introduced to Ivan Nachman (aka Ryan Quade Emerson), the internal affairs investigator hired by Greenville County Sheriff Cash Williams. Listeners learn just how damaging it can be for a lawman to hire someone to investigate his own department.
