OCSO investigators make fourth arrest in Holly Hill quadruple murder

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, SC (WCSC) - The Orangeburg County Sheriff's Office has announced another arrest in connection to a quadruple murder in Holly Hill.

Sheriff Leroy Ravenell announced on Friday that 20-year-old Shyheim Lippman of Eutawville has been charged with obstruction of justice after lying to investigators attempting to solve the 2015 murder case.

Bond was set at $25,000 during a hearing on Friday. Lippman is the fourth person charged in the case.

On Thursday, Sheriff Ravenell announced the arrest of 35-year-old Antly Scott, 27-year-old Derrick Coleman and 37-year-old Robert Bailey. 

The sheriff's office said while Bailey was formally charged in a hearing on Thursday, Scott and Coleman are in Alabama where they were captured earlier this week. The OCSO is in the extradition process to return the men to the Palmetto State.

"I said yesterday that we will be charging anyone who had information on the horrific murders involving children and two adults in Holly Hill," the sheriff said. "Our investigators left the press conference on Thursday and headed straight back into the field."

The arrests are in connection to the July 15, 2015 incident at an Old Street Road home where four people were each found dead of gunshot wounds.

The victims were 17-year-old Shamekia Sanders, 14-year-old Tamara Perry, 50-year-old Jerome Butler and 28-year-old Krystal Hutto.

According to OCSO officials, Dreamzz Nelson, 8, was also shot in the drug-related robbery but survived his wound.

"We're not finished with this investigation," Ravenell said. "If you protected these men in any way, you're going to be charged. There's just no two ways about it. We warned you and now we're keeping our promise."

Robert Bailey was in bond court on Thursday and told the judge he was innocent of the charges.
