Stephen Buckner Has Rage Issues, Murders 3

January 19, 2008 at 10:58 am by  

Gina Edwards

Nebo, North Carolina – When a neighbor opened her door to a frantic 21-year-old Gina Edwards (above) Friday morning, she was not thinking “gunshot”. But that’s what had happened. Gina stumbled into the neighbor’s living room holding her left arm. “I’ve been shot. Everyone in my house has been shot, and he’s trying to shoot me,” she said.

Sure enough, police arrived to find Stephen Monroe Buckner, 51, standing in the garage at 6905 Highway 70 East. He was donning Kevlar and armed with a handgun. Buckner walked out of his garage firing at deputies, and got at least four shots off before he was injured by return fire. Buckner was taken to an Asheville hospital to be treated for his injuries. Inside the house, two women and a young girl were not so lucky.

Gina Edwards told police that the three murder victims were her aunt, who was Buckner’s girlfriend; the girlfriend’s daughter and Buckner’s own daughter. I’ve found Gina’s Myspace, and I believe that the victim’s names are Vickie L., Chelsea G. and Rebecca B. One of the girls may be as young as 14.

* Update, 1.19.08, 5:25 PM: The victims have been identified as Vickie L. Lowery, 42; her daughter, Chelsea Nichole Gregory, 14; and Rebecca Rose Buckner, 25.

Buckner had recently left (or been fired from) his job with the State Alcohol and Drug Treatment Center in Black Mountain. He’d been a prison guard for nearly a decade and may have also spent time as a reserve deputy sheriff. His work history is public service dates to 1988. Not that any of that makes him a great guy, but it does make more people say “Wow, didn’t see that coming.”

Neighbors, on the other hand, say that Buckner was easy to annoy and liked to brandish weapons when asking neighbors who cut his phone line or what was up with their trimming the rose bushes. “He has just been weird the whole time we’ve lived here,” said one neighbor. “I just try to stay away from him”. And commenters at North Carolina news outlets say that Buckner has a long history of being fired for his explosive temper and erratic behavior.

Motive right now is still sketchy. Police say it appears that perhaps Vickie Lowery was planning to move out of the home, which might have triggered a rage attack. Or maybe Buckner’s just an abusive asshole with a gun. Whatever happened, I really hope his morphine pump mysteriously runs out of pain medication for the duration of his hospital stay. Buckner has at least three bullet wounds, but is listed in fair condition at Mission Hospitals in Asheville.

Stephen Buckner is being charged with three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, and six counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill. Gina Edwards is reportedly recovering at a family member’s home and is expected to be fine physically. Emotionally will be another story, I have no doubt.  I’m still working to verify pictures of the other three victims, but will post them when I have them.

I’ll edit as more information becomes available.

    Obvious nutcase that wasn’t screened well when hired for law enforcement job. I doubt if he suddenly snapped and the girlfriend probably knew he was a bit off plumb. This will probably be one of those cases where someone a little nuts went totally nuts. No surprise.

    I have pictures of who I believe to be the other victims but won’t post them without confirmation from the family or police sources. The girlfriend’s family appears close-knit and loving. Buckner’s daughter was a lovely girl. There is nothing any of them could have done to set Buckner off like this.

    I’m thinkin’ a little time in general population would be good. They can put that “former prison guard” sign on his back and wait. Problem solved in ten minutes or less.

    From the Asheville Citizen- Times :
    NEBO – Stephen M. Buckner, 51, has been charged with three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and six counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

    The charges stem from a shooting rampage Friday at a McDowell County home that left three people dead, Capt. Dudley Greene of the McDowell County Sherriff’s Department said.

    Buckner was charged with murder in connection with the deaths of Vicki L. Lowery, 42, Chelsea Nichole Gregory, 14, and Buckner’s daughter, Rebecca Rose Buckner, 25.

    Buckner was reportedly dating and living with Lowery, while Nichole was Lowery’s daughter.

    Following the alleged murders, Buckner fired on six McDowell County deputies as they approached his home on U.S. 70, Greene said, resulting in the assault charges. Deputies returned fire.

    (snipped for copyright… news outlets get cranky if you copy their whole articles. sorry.. imp:)

    Jessica Thorne, also a Nebo resident, said she knew Lowery, one of the victims.

    “She was very sweet, kind, always talked about her daughter,” recalled Thorne, who said she worked with the woman at Autumn Care, an assisted-living facility on Airport Road. “I just don’t see how anyone can do anything like that.”

    I’m confused. Did i say something somewhere that indicated all prison guards were bad? Actually, we have very nice things to say about many prison guards, and I did a story not long about how three inmates rescued a female guard who was being attacked. I’m an equal opportunity shamer. I do not discriminate based on race, creed, color, gender or profession.

    I haven’t seen much of anything on updates, except this odd little tidbit – Stephen Buckner II was arrested for trying to kill dogs who were disturbing his sister’s grave. His sister is Rebecca Rose Buckner.

    Dogs who were disturbing his sister’s grave? Sounds like a scene out of a novel by the Brontes. What was he decorating her grave with? Packages of sirloin? Garlands of weenies?

    I haven’t seen much of anything on updates, except this odd little tidbit – Stephen Buckner II was arrested for trying to kill dogs who were disturbing his sister’s grave. His sister is Rebecca Rose Buckner.

    Ground beef mixed with glass…but that was to kill the dogs that were disturbing his sister’s grave…dogs that his stepmom owned. I’m no expert but someone should check his fridge for ‘other’ things’ ;)

    Neighbors, on the other hand, say that Buckner was easy to annoy and liked to brandish weapons when asking neighbors who cut his phone line or what was up with their trimming the rose bushes. “He has just been weird the whole time we’ve lived here,” said one neighbor. “I just try to stay away from him”. And commenters at North Carolina news outlets say that Buckner has a long history of being fired for his explosive temper and erratic behavior.

    Uhmmm, what’s wrong with this picture? ie why hadn’t the neighbours reported him for brandishing weapons at them, and acting erratically. What does it take to have weapons confiscated? Apart from killing people, that is. And his Dirty Harry Kevlar walkout? Too gutless to commit suicide; tried to get the cops to do it. Bad luck, Buckeye, you’re gonna have your spell of incarseration.

    A suspect accused in a triple homicide in January 2008 has an official trial date, but it’s still a year away.
    Stephen Monroe Buckner, 51, of U.S. 70 East in Nebo appeared Wednesday in McDowell County Superior Court. District Attorney Brad Greenway was requesting that the trial begin Monday, Jan. 18, 2010, but court-appointed Defense Attorneys Ted Cummings and Victoria Jayne of Catawba County said they had other cases to try the first of the year, so they asked for a date next September.
    Judge Laura J. “Suzy” Bridges set the trial to start on Sept. 13, 2010 but said no court is scheduled in McDowell County at that time, so she will have to request a special session.
    Buckner officially pleaded not guilty in July to three counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted first-degree murder and six counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
    Greenway stated Wednesday that all of the charges will be consolidated for one trial. Buckner remains at Central Prison in Raleigh for safekeeping.

    I worked 3rd shift with Vickie and she was so sweet angelic. She always talked about her daughter and at the time she was a cheerleader. They were real people who had happy times and bad times, just like all of us. Chelsea was a daddy's girl. I will never understand how Vickie ended up with a fucking evil man like Buckner. A shot to the head would have been great especially if the family pulled the trigger. They always say the longer you can postpone a murder trail the better. The defence doesn't want the horror of the crime to be fresh in the memory of the witnesses or the community. GUESS WHAT they can wait til the end of the world but we know he'll pay in hell for this. A sorry ass man like that; who even took his own child's life hell is too good for him. We want this trial; bring it on. I'll be there.

    How did you get the pics of Gina and her family? Don’t you need permission to post them on the web?

  • Athena

    Not if the pics were obtained from a publically-accessible website like MySpace or Facebook. Makes a person want to think twice about how much they put out there, huh?

    Dont you need permission to be takingpics off of others myspaces? They have a privacy policy and i dont think that ia abiding by it is it? But we will be contating our lawyer and the authorities if the pic is not removed from the web site within 48 hours. And I do think it is stealing if her acount is set to private.

    I realize this was a while back and you probably don’t get on here and I don’t even know why I’m saying anything, but I knew her too. I knew since the 3rd grade. When I moved to where she used to live before McDowell County, she was my first friend and we lived in the same neighborhood. I went to her wake after she died. I remember it was all over the news but I didn’t watch it and I didn’t realize it was her and then one day my mom pointed it out to me :( I didn’t even know she’d moved because I’d moved there 2 years before her. I still go sometimes to see where she’s buried, even though I’ve moved 12 hours away now. I don’t know why I said any of this. Maybe it’s just because I wanted to share it with someone who knew her too. She died too young. She was a year older than me. I think about it all the time, how now I’m older and it never should have been that way. Rest In Peace Chelsea.

    Go AHEAD & PUT THE MUTHA TO DEATH. We are sick & tired of paying taxes on this asshole. It”s been 6 years since he killed my only daughter & 2 other a 14 year old who had her whole life taken from her, & Vicky I didn’t know her, but from what I’ve heard she was a wonderful person.
