WHAT REALLY HAPPENED?
A COP'S COP
In 1975, Frank Looper was one of the most feared drug cops in Upstate South Carolina. A graduate of Greenville High School, Looper transformed himself from a clean-cut kid into a hard-nosed undercover detective known affectionately as the Fuzzy Beast.
Looper was fearless in his pursuit of drug dealers and anyone who protected them. In an era of rampant corruption and organized crime in Greenville, Looper was as clean as they came.
Many people believed Looper's work put a target on his back. Investigators would eventually conclude the execution-style shooting that killed Looper and his father was the result of a botched robbery. Not everyone believed them. For decades, rumors persisted that the cops had it all wrong and put away the wrong man.
Today, there remains an ongoing investigation into what really happened. If you have information to share, you can send secure tips though this website.
