Adrienne Simpson and Tyler Terry have been likened to the notorious criminal duo Bonnie and Clyde. Simpson and Terry criss-crossed multiple states spanning more than 1,000 miles in May, chalking up dozens of charges in a rap sheet that included a combined four homicide charges in South Carolina and Missouri — with investigators tying them to a fifth slaying in Tennessee — while also wounding three men in separate shootings and riddling six vehicles with bullets. During their alleged crime spree, the South Carolina couple led Chester County Sheriff Max Dorsey’s deputies on a high-speed chase topping 100 mph. Simpson was behind the wheel of a 2020 Mitsubishi Mirage while Terry fired a volley of gunshots at six pursuing officers, striking three patrol vehicles, according to court documents.“They were extremely dangerous. They became even more dangerous after the initial murder,” Dorsey said during interviews with NBC News this month. “That danger increased because they no longer had anything to lose. I believe that’s what led them to not having a concern for anyone else’s well-being after that.”Through court documents, police statements and jail records, NBC News pieced together a timeline of the duo’s alleged crime wave, which centered around three dates: May 2, May 15 and May 17. Their M. O. was to hit unsuspecting victims quickly, police said, during sprees that terrorized communities over a period of hours. Simpson was mostly the getaway driver in the dark grey Mitsubishi and Terry was the gunman, according to arrest warrants. The couple began their felonious rampage by killing their former lovers in their home state, police said. Terry, 26, and Simpson, 33, had dated for about three years, court records said. Other victims were seemingly casualties of being at the wrong place at the wrong time when Terry and Simpson accosted them in robberies, attempted robberies and a burglary, police documents show. A motive for the prolonged violence was not explicitly stated by authorities in records. Terry’s attorney, William Frick, said his client is “innocent until proven guilty.”The couple is now jailed in South Carolina on no bond. They were arrested a week apart last month. And although investigators only began understanding the full extent of their crimes after Simpson’s arrest on May 17, they secured key details in the slayings with her cooperation, records said. The South Carolina couple’s spate of crimes is believed to have started shortly after midnight the morning of May 2 with the killing of Simpson’s husband, Eugene, in Chester, South Carolina, according to arrest warrants. Terry was allegedly in possession of a 9 mm handgun, while Simpson carried a nickel-plated .38 Smith and Wesson revolver. Simpson told police that she and Terry “shot Eugene Simpson and dumped the body on Stroud Road,” a warrant said. Police recovered her husband’s body based on information she provided, the warrant said.
