GREER, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Wednesday marks the ninth anniversary of a triple homicide at a Greer bank that remains unsolved.

On May 16, 2003, three people were found dead inside Blue Ridge Savings Bank on East Frontage Road. About 1:30 p.m., the bank was robbed by someone who fled before police arrived about 1:43 p.m.

Greer police said they found the bodies of employee Sylvia Holtzclaw, of Greer, and two customers, James and Margaret Barnes, of Boiling Springs, inside a small utility room in the back of the bank. All three victims had been shot to death.

Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced Wednesday that agents have followed hundreds of leads in this case.

The FBI believes additional information exists, if people would come forward. The public is urged to call their local FBI office with any information they have.

In February, the site of the former Blue Ridge Savings Bank closed.

Greer police and the FBI continue to investigate the case. 

Anyone with information about the homicides was asked to call Crime Stoppers at 888-CRIME-SC (888-274-6372).
