SHELBY — Six people from Union County have been arrested in connection with the early Monday morning murder of 35-year-old Travis Wallace, of Gaffney, at the Super 8 Motel in Shelby, N.C.

Timothy John Clark, 46, of Buffalo, along with Willa Jean Hucks, 37, Brint Ray Davis, 26, Karrie Roach, 26, and Michael Anthony Dinneen, 36, each of Union, are charged with first-degree murder and attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon. All five are currently being detained in Union County and will remain in the custody of South Carolina law enforcement.

This investigation was collaboration between the Shelby Police Department, Union County Sheriff’s Department, Union Public Safety Department and the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Department. Sheriff Taylor said more charges and more arrests are expected in this case.

“Union County Sheriff’s Deputies received a call of a stolen vehicle from 1810 Main Street, Buffalo at 4:49 am on Oct. 12, 2015. The vehicle was recovered near the scene of the murder. Deputies were told that Willa Hucks, Timothy Clark, and Karrie Roach had left in the vehicle. With this information, Law Enforcement Agencies were able to link these individuals to the murder in Shelby, NC. When officers were at 1810 Main Street, Buffalo, they saw in plain view marijuana and drug paraphernalia which lead to the arrest of Jessica Brooke Smith.”

The suspects in the case are being held with no bond in Union County Jail at this time, and it is unknown when extradition would take place.

What happened Monday?

“There was a robbery. Drugs were present in the room, but we do not know to what extent,” Taylor said.

Wallace was found at 4:30 a.m. on Monday at the Shelby Super 8 motel, located at 1716 East Dixon Blvd. A 911 call was made from inside the room, according to officials on Monday. Wallace was found in room 218 suffering from a single gunshot wound to the chest.

“Three people entered the room looking for something,” Taylor said. “As a result, Wallace was shot.”
