Hello all. I am going to where one of the Gaffney Strangler killed his victims... just off HWY 11 in the woods on an old wind mill. If anyone is familiar with this location or even has more information on the Gaffney Strangler please reply... I tried to look up some of the old newspaper articles about it and cant find anything.. it happened around the 60's a guy named Leroy would kidnap and kill girls and then Rape them after they were dead and then would pose their naked bodies in diff areas and send an annomyous letter to the Gaffney police station telling the police where to find the bodies and signed it the Gaffney Strangler... Wish me luck.. :lol:

I've been doing some reseach as well on the Gaffney Strangler. I am attempting to locate the areas that he 'did the deed' as well as the dump areas. The bridge I found on Ford Rd. just doesn't seem to be able to 'hide' a body, unless a lot of grading has been done in the area, it is swampy , but mostly clear around the bridge.

There is a lot of information on the Gaffney strangler on the net. He killed and lived about 30 minutes from me. I have been to the places where he killed (lived) as well as the dump sites. you can hear their cries and I did not thankfully but my friend seen one of his victims. Well the spirit.

Beth, send me a pm if you know where he dumped Nancey Rhinehart. That is the primary location that we are looking for...we tried to find Chain Gang Rd. but according to our GPS we were unable to find the road in Gaffney. We did find the bride on Ford Rd. but that was all we were able to find. I appreciate any more info you can give me.

Does anyone else on this forum have any information about possible burial sites of where the Gaffney Strangler would have killed his victims?

I am looking for GPS location, an exact address, off a highway or a general description of how to get to this location.

Yes sorry I did not respond before now. When I was younger my daddy use to take us pass where the Gaffney strangler lived and tell us about him on the way to see my grandmother. My aunt went missing and my dad was called in when they found Nancy. Lucky for dads sister it was not her. My aunt only ran away from home. Jerusalem road then go to the second ridge turn left not even a half mile that's where one was killed. Another one he killed in the trailor he lived in and dumped her body. One was killed on ford road and dumped over the bridge there. One of the victims family members had him killed in prison.(rumor has it) Wish I knew which way you would be coming Id give you directions to the places and his house.
