North Charleston police are investigating the early Sunday morning murder of a taxi driver in Horizon Village. No further details at this time, but we will bring them to you when they become available.


We have been advised of some new information related to the arrest of Brandon Sigmon who committed a home invasion in Cane Bay this past Wednesday. He assaulted a woman using a firearm and a Taser allegedly stolen in a previous burglary and smacker a toddler around. Maybe Brandon was trying to emulate his father, Brad Keith Sigmon, who is currently on South Carolina’s death row for a burglary and double murder committed in 2001 in Greenville County. Brad Sigmon broke into the home of his girlfriend’s parents and beat them to death with a baseball bat. Brad Sigmon then kidnapped his girlfriend and shot her several times. He decided to flee when he ran out of ammunition. He has been on death row and appealing his conviction since 2002.




We have been told by a few different sources that Brandon Sigmon’s wife probably doesn’t know about his alleged activities involving painkillers, methamphetamine and hookers. Heck of a way to find out, huh?

    Death row since 2001. And that is the problem. This guy should have been feeding worms a long time ago. No reason the process should take that long. It darn sure didn’t prove a deferent to his deranged son.

    Sometimes people are like dogs - they just have to be put down when rabid…

    Thirteen years? Seems like when you have these pieces of shit dead to rights like this that you might as well go ahead on and flush the toilet. I can only imagine how brutal his crime was, and he should have experienced something similar while his crime was still fresh in his head. Instead he is left for THIRTEEN years to soak up taxpayer dollars? He doesn’t look like he’s doing bad in prison. He isn’t all beat up. This is utter bullshit.

    I’m not some death penalty nut, but crimes this brutal certainly deserve it. They should also take into account the offender being busted dead to rights. Take em out back and put one in their head at the conclusion of the trial like they do in China. Maybe let the family taunt em first. Symbolically sentencing someone to die just seems like its a colossal waste of resources.

      I agree. One of the main reasons the death penalty isn’t much of a deterrent is the fact that the appeals process can take decades to run the course. If the sentence was carried out soon after judgement, I believe more people would think twice before committing those crimes.

    The dad only weighs 50 pounds?

      Maybe they only weighed his head and neck!
