Murder suspect arrested for breaking and entering

Published 9:49pm Monday, December 10, 2012

Case originally received no bond on the murder charge then was given a $500,000 bond in Henderson County in March. Case was released from jail on June 8 after posting a property bond.

Case was arrested on Feb. 25 after investigators found Lindsay dead at his 2643 Macedonia Road home on Feb. 22 in the Henderson County portion of Saluda. Investigators said they responded to a report that Lindsay died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound but after conflicting statements and evidence collected, Case was charged with the murder.

Preliminary autopsy results determined that Lindsay’s death was homicide and that he died as a result of a large-caliber, non-exiting gunshot wound to the face and neck.

Hill said Case’s Polk County bond can only be set by a district or superior court judge due to his pending murder charge. Case is currently being held at the Polk County Jail and has his first appearance scheduled in Polk County Court on the breaking and entering and larceny charges on Wednesday, Dec. 12.

Maybin was released from jail on a written promise to appear in court, according to sheriff reports.
