Thanks for reading GwdToday - Everyday!

A wild afternoon at the Cultured Cowboy and 12 of the 17 people killed in Greenwood continue the countdown of the Top 10 Stories of 2013.

4. Cultured Cowboy Stabbing

Two women, one a former employee of the Cultured Cowboy and the other a girlfriend of the owner of the Cultured Cowboy, got into an altercation in February that left the former employee stabbed multiple times. According to the former employee’s boyfriend, the victim was coming to pick up some paperwork to take to Department of Social Services when she was attacked, unprovoked, by the suspect. The suspect, 29-year-old Danielle Balasty, was charged with attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime in connection with the incident. According to court records, those charges are still pending.

3. Deadliest year in recent memory for Greenwood County

A total of 17 people were killed in Greenwood County in 2013, 15 by gunshot. While the tragedy in Callison is at the center of the violent year, this piece will deal only with the other 12 homicides. Most of the violence occurred at or near homes throughout the county. The lone exception was a shocking double homicide at the Extended Stay Motel on Montague Avenue. In one incident, a son is charged with beating his father to death. In another, a man is accused of choking the victim while the victim had a heart attack. In yet another, a 15-year-old boy lay dead, an unintended target who did nothing more than stand in the wrong place at the wrong time. One common theme among all of these terrible tragedies is the fact that they all started over petty disagreements. Below you will find links to all the articles about each incident, sorted by incident location.
