UNION, SC – Four vandals have been arrested for an attack at a South Carolina Baptist church on July 7.
A Union County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson said the Family Life Center had “Hail Satan” carved into one of the columns, and two plastic columns were burned. The spokesperson identified James LaGrange Murphy, 18, as the non-juvenile who participated. The names of the other three are not released because of their age.
The damage to church property is estimated at less than $600. It has not yet been determined if the attack will be classified as a hate crime.
