Tyler Terry, the at-large suspect accused of murder and attempted murder in South Carolina, has been linked to a pair of homicides in Missouri, police said.
The search for Terry has been ongoing since Monday night after a police chase ended in a crash on Highway 9 in Chester County. Deputies said Terry ran into a wooded area and has avoided being captured since.
Terry is accused of firing shots at Chester County Sheriff’s Office deputies while riding as a passenger in a car reportedly fleeing law enforcement. The driver of the car, later identified as Adrienne Simpson, was arrested at the scene of the crash and faces multiple charges.
Terry and Simpson are also wanted for their alleged role in two shootings in St. Louis, Missouri. According to WCNC Charlotte’s sister station in St. Louis, KSDK, the pair were identified as suspects in the killings of Dr. Sergei Zacharev and Barbara Goodkin on the night of May 15. Some of Zacharev’s personal belongings had been taken from him, and he had been shot multiple times, according to sources familiar with the investigation.
A year before going on the alleged crime spree, which investigators liken to Bonnie and Clyde, Tyler Terry and Adrienne Simpson were linked to other criminal cases, in North Carolina and South Carolina, and court records show, in those cases, Simpson was his victim.
