On February 7th, 2015 at 4:30 Horry County Police Department responded to a call at Sandy Monkey Bar and Grill. Michelle Messer was attending a function and had no idea her ex-boyfriend would also be attending. Mrs. Messer went to her vehicle in the parking lot where she was brutally attacked by Christopher Brian Campbell. The suspect beat Mrs. Messer furiously all over her body then BIT a piece of her nose off. He then told Mrs. Messer that he would then have to kill her so no one knew what he had done. Mrs. Messer was able to open her car door and attempted to escape. While bleeding profusely she only made it to the front of her car where she lost conciousness. The suspect then proceeded to kick her in the stomach while she was passed out, in view of approximately 20 onlookers. When the police arrived Christopher Campbell was still in the parking lot talking on his cell phone covered in the victims blood. He was advised to get on the ground and when he would not he was tazed into compliance. He was then said to have told the officer, "if I had a gun, I would have shot you in the head".
Christopher Brian Campbell is no stranger to law enforcement. At the time of the incident he was out on $75,000 bond for the murder of Thomas Edward Unrue, Jr on February 9th 2013 - two years from this attack. Campbell is now at J Rueben Long Detention Center in Conway awaiting a bond hearing. He is charged with CDV of a High and Aggravated Nature. This charge carries a 1-10 year sentence with a mandatory minimum 1 (one) year but the court may suspend the remainder of the sentence on condition that the defendant complete a batterer's treatment program.
This, my friends, is why SC is ranked 2nd (second) in the nation for woman killed by men. Please join me in fighting to increase his charge from CDV H&A to no less than Attempted Murder in the 1st Degree. Let's make SC safe for woman and children.
