Brandon Cory Lecroy allegedly offered an undercover Federal Bureau of Investigation agent $500 to kill the neighbor in the small town of Hodges 85 miles west of Columbia, South Carolina.

If convicted on all charges, Lecroy could receive up to 10 years in prison and be fined up to $250,000, prosecutors said.

A Lexington County deputy working with the Federal Bureau of Investigation submitted an affidavit in a U.S. District Court that alleges Lecroy contacted a confidential source in the Federal Bureau of Investigation on March 19 seeking help in killing his black neighbor.

"According to an affidavit cited by indexjournal.com, Lecroy called the undercover agent on March 20 and said "$500 and he's a ghost".

After receiving a tip that Lecroy had allegedly contacted a white supremacist extremist organization "to seek assistance with the murder of his African-American neighbor", according to the criminal complaint, an agent made contact with the Lecroy, according to the Charleston Post & Courier.

Lecroy wanted the man killed and his body hung from a tree, with a KKK-style burning cross erected on his front lawn. He also reportedly sent the agent pictures of his neighbor. Lecroy said he wanted an untraceable, not-stolen "ghost gun". Authorities said Lecroy even advised the agent of the best time to murder his neighbor and offered money for future murders. He had allegedly paid $100 as a downpayment for his neighbor's murder. After a hearing that day before a US District Court in Anderson, a judge ordered that Lecroy be committed for up to 45 days to a federal facility for a psychiatric or psychological evaluation. The case was investigated by FBI agents and was assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney William J. Watkins Jr., of the Greenville office.
