SUMTER - South Carolina police have a second suspect in custody in last week's shooting death of the man who became famous in 1988 as the first to report a sighting of the legendary Lizard Man.
The Item of Sumter reported Tuesday that 22-year-old Anogory Santrell Slater of Rembert turned himself in to Sumter County sheriff's deputies in last week's shooting death of 37-year-old Christopher Davis.
Nineteen-year-old Lakiem Davar Butler of Camden turned himself in Monday.
Officials say Davis was shot to death in his home in an apparent drug-related incident.
Davis became an international celebrity at age of 16 when he reported the first sighting of the legendary Lizard Man, a big-eyed swamp creature. Authorities never figured out what prompted the reports.
