Man Faces Murder Charges in Greenville

Twenty eight year old Zacharia Atle Pearson of Pelzer will face Murder Charges after an incident that occured on July 25 at 12 Kathy’s way in Piedmont.  According to witnesses, Pearson and the twenty four year old victim were engaged in a verbal argument.  Pearson reportedly walked into the kitchen, grabbed a knife, then walked  over to the victim and began stabbing her in the upper chest and neck region.  The knife Pearson was using reportedly broke, so he turned his attention to the male occupant at the residence, as well as his female acquaintance.  While Pearson was assaulting these two individual by punching and head butting them, the female stabbing victim fled the residence and made her way to 521 Dalton Rd., where she collapsed on the front porch and died.  The two assault victims were able to flee the residence and hide nearby until deputies arrived on the scene.

Shortly after the incident occurred, Pearson fled the residence and walked on to the property at 533 Dalton Rd.  The male subject, who was outside of his residence, heard noises down the road and walked toward the edge of his property to see what was going on.  Pearson, who was armed with a pipe in one hand, and an unknown object in his other hand, charged the resident, who retreated towards his residence.  The resident made it to his back deck, and turned around to see Pearson charging and yelling at him.  The male resident, who was lawfully carrying a weapon due to the fact that he has a concealed weapon’s permit holder, shot Pearson two times after realizing that his safety, and possibly his life was in jeopardy.  The shooting of Pearson is being investigated as a separate, but related incident to the 12 Kathy’s way homicide.  At this time the individual who shot Pearson is not facing any charges.

  1. He had this coming for a long time. He drowned his daughter five years ago to the month. Made his girlfriend/baby’s mother take the blame for his crime. He has a record as long as his arm.

  2. Can’t believe I actually know him… Maybe now they will lock him up for good! He has ruined too many families’ lives.

  3. They won’t do anything permanent to him just slap his hand and put him the corner for a few years. Then he will go free again to return to apparently what he enjoys doing unfortunately.

  4. WHO THE HELL DOES HE THINK HE IS? he did’nt give life for him to take it only GOD can do that!

Not only did he kill my two buddies dennis and chris the afternoon they were heading to the store then coming to get me, but now i read since then he has become more horrible and wretched, killing his own kid and now this???? wow….i never thought he was capable, meth or no. im just glad i stopped any coorespondence years ago when the boys died and i never looked back. i got my life together.

  7. I do not know this man but it seems to me that he needs to be locked up for life.
    Every time he gets out he seem to some how hurt sumone else.some people just never change.

  8. What an angry little turd. Good news is his life is over and this pathetic wimp won’t harm anyone else. This man man has been free because of bleeding heart neo-hippie liberals who believe we should all have a coke and a smile and love each other. Remember this man the next time you vote.

  14. That is my long lost twin brother

  15. Too bad the citizen wasn’t a better shot or had a larger caliber weapon. Could have saved the taxpayers a lot of money. That is, assuming everything I read here is true. Hard to believe that he mounted such a violent attack. Show’s you what sin will do and man’s inhumanity to man. A lesson to those who do not think law abiding citizens should be allowed to carry firearms.

  16. Lisa we talking about Zack. Wake up and smell the coffee. This guy is in prison more than out. Got you believing he is a nice guy? Look him in the eyes one time. That well tell his life story. Con man and cold blooded killer three times..
