Accused killer: 'I ridded one less child molester from the earth'

4-15-15 North Carolina:

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Daytona Beach police arrested a man wanted in the killing of a man at a North Carolina community college early Monday morning, authorities said.

Authorities said 20-year-old Kenneth Stancil III confessed to shooting and killing Ron Lane at Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, North Carolina, on Monday.

"There's a warrant that's been issued out of the state of North Carolina for you for the charge of murder," Judge Chris Kelly told Stancil.

"I just want you to know, I ridded one less (expletive) child molester from the (expletive) earth that (expletive) with my little brother. All right? That's all I got to say," Stancil told the judge. “I don’t give a (expletive) how much time they give me. Doing time is the easy (expletive) part, know what I’m saying?”

Investigators said Stancil entered the campus print shop where he used to work as part of a work-study program and fired once with a pistol-grip shotgun, killing Lane, his former supervisor.

School officials said Stancil was dismissed from the school's work-study program for too many absences.

Volusia County Beach Patrol said they found Stancil asleep on the beach early Tuesday morning and took him into custody on charges of violating the city’s ordinance against sleeping on the beach.

Officials said Stancil rode his motorcycle from North Carolina to South Carolina, where it broke down, and then hitchhiked the rest of the way to Daytona Beach.

Officers said Stancil made comments indicating that he knew there was a warrant out for his arrest, and said he confessed to killing Lane.

"That's a scary thing, and fortunately nobody was hurt, and our officers did a great job, and they were able to apprehend the subject without any problems," said Tammy Marris, of the Volusia Beach Safety Ocean Rescue.

Investigators said Stancil had a knife on him and was detained for further identification. He gave the officers his name and was taken into custody without incident.

"When he woke up, he had the knife in his hand," Morris said. "He was sleeping on it, but when he was ordered to put down the knife, he complied right away."

Stancil was taken to the Volusia County Jail without bail.

The Goldsboro Police Department and the Wayne County District Attorney’s Office said it will now be working with the Volusia County Florida Prosecutor’s Office in order to extradite Stancil back to North Carolina. ..Source.. by

Stancil's mother speaks out about abuse allegations

The mother of Kenneth Morgan Stancil III, the 20-year-old accused of shooting and killing 44-year-old Ron Lane, his former supervisor at Wayne Community College, who was gay, says her son is "rattled and confused."

Stancil was arrested without incident early Tuesday while sleeping on a Florida beach.

Stancil made his first court appearance later in the day, saying in a profanity-laced and unsubstantiated tirade that the man he killed had molested a relative.

Lane, the school's print shop director, had been Stancil's supervisor in a work-study program before Stancil was let go in early March. It wasn't clear how long they had worked together.

Police have not released a motive in the shooting. Stancil's mother told The Associated Press that Lane made sexually laced comments to her son.

"He was verbally inappropriate with Morgan at school. Very much verbally inappropriate," Debbie Stancil said. "He would tell him to stop and he kept on."

College spokeswoman Tara Humphries said she did not know whether any complaints had been lodged against Lane.

Debbie Stancil said she knows one of her relatives was not sexually abused by Lane, as Kenneth Stancil claimed in court, because the relative and Lane had never met. She believes Kenneth Stancil is making the accusations because he is "rattled and confused."

He never recovered from his father's suicide in 2009 and was angry about being dismissed from the college's print shop, she told AP.

"I don't agree with what he did, but in his mind he must have thought that was the only way," she said. "He's probably out of his mind. I think he needs mental help."

Experts who track hate groups said Stancil's facial tattoo with the number "88" is a clear indication of a neo-Nazi - a group that has been accused of attacking gays. However, police have not said whether Stancil held white supremacist beliefs or what hate crime they are investigating.

Stancil's mother said he gave himself the facial tattoo over the weekend and it marked a wannabe rather than someone who expressed neo-Nazi views.

He left behind a six-page letter explaining his actions and a video, which have been turned over to police, his mother said.

Lane's brother and sister declined to comment when reached by AP.

Stancil had no criminal record before the shooting. He was on the school's dean's list with a grade point average of 3.6 or better and due to graduate in July with a degree in welding technology, the school said.

Brent Hood, coordinator of education support technology at the college, was Lane's supervisor for the past three years. He said he thought Stancil killed Lane because he was upset over being dismissed, not because he was gay.

"I guess from my point of view, he (Stancil) was angry over getting dismissed from his duties," Hood told The Associated Press. "He worked very well with Ron; he worked very well with my other employees."
