Kevin Bobo with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office spoke on Friday about Howard's works and said, "It's just another piece of the puzzle that adds into his background. It's my understanding they're works of fiction, but from what I've been told, the content of them, some can consider disturbing."
On Howard’s website, there are links to several online novels, including “When No Means Yes,” and “One Life for One Night” and “You Opened Your Legs Before I Opened My Heart.”
In a YouTube video, Howard recites his poem entitled “Before He Opened His Heart,” an excerpt of which says, “He and every other man that she calls a dog, it’s not the games they play but the sex that is her fog … She says she wants love, but she succumbs to lust.”
Howard ,who is a Clemson grad and former Clemson football player, calls himself “author and poet” on his website, and says half of all the proceeds from the sales of his novels go toward breast cancer research.
Investigators are asking anyone with information about Goodlett or Howard’s whereabouts call CrimeStoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC.
Deputies said there are no active warrants against Howard at this time.
