Two Charged in Murder of Tammy Lewis
40-year-old Tammy L. Lewis was last seen March 17th by two separate friends. The missing woman was known to disappear for a few days at a time and she was struggling with drug addiction. In this instance however, Tammy Lewis’ family was very concerned.
Tammy’s house had been broken into, her car had reportedly been stolen and there have been reports of her receiving death threats prior to disappearing. From Fox Carolina:
After she went missing, Lewis’ family told FOX Carolina that it was not unusual for Lewis to go missing for a couple of days at a time, but this amount of time was unusual.
Police said at that time that they completed a search of Lewis’ home, but did not release the details of the search.
Lewis’ sister, Tiona Perry, said Lewis’ home was broken into three days before she went missing. She said Lewis also reported her car had been stolen before her disappearance.
Perry said she found a scene of disarray inside her sister’s home when she went to check on her. She said Lewis’ power had been cut and there was a strong smell of bleach inside, to which Lewis is allergic.
Now police have announced that 25-year-old Stephanie Bailey and 27-year-old Antwon Michael Quarles Jr. have been charged with the beating death of Tammy Lewis. Quarles is already sitting in the penn on federal parole violation charges so he hasn’t been served his arrest warrant yet. This sounds to me like Quarles got picked up and rolled on his girlfriend.
No motive has been announced yet but it’s likely drug related. WSPA has plenty of updates and the original video of the case:
