Murders on Lyttleton: A Norris Ave. connection?
1306 Norris Ave
At the time of their deaths, murder victims Steven and Nancy Hales owned this home at 1306 Norris Ave. in east Camden. They first purchased the property in August 2012. In May 2016, they sold it to their future accused murderer, Thomas Dwayne Knotts, and a woman in an owner-financed deal for $118,000. Knotts and the woman vacated the property and surrendered it back to the Hales in January 2019 for $1 and to satisfy the mortgage. (Martin L. Cahn/C-I)
Since Thomas Dwayne Knotts’ arrest more than a week ago for the murders of Steven and Nancy Hales in their Lyttleton Street, Camden home, there has been the question of motivation: Why did Knotts allegedly kill them and then set their house on fire? Thursday afternoon, Camden Police Department (CPD) Chief Joe Floyd said that when investigators from his department and the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division questioned Knotts, he did not really provide a motivation.
