Nationwide Manhunt for Accused Killer

Stephen Stanko Stephen Stanko

A nationwide manhunt is on for a South Carolina man. Have you seen Stephen Stanko? Police say he killed two people and sexually assaulted a teenager over the weekend.

Police found the body of Henry Turner Saturday morning after neighbors reported a strange car in his driveway. The car belonged to Laura Ling, who lived with Stanko and whom police found dead Friday.

Police say Stanko also assaulted a teenaged girl Friday. She's the one who reported Ling's death.

Stanko served eight years in prison for kidnapping and wrote a book while behind bars about his experiences.

Police think Stanko is driving a black Mazda pickup with South Carolina  tag 709 PYJ. If you see him, call police immediately.
