Victor Lee Turner, alongside his wife Megan Turner, has been arrested for the murder of their 5-year-old son, Justin, whose body was discovered in their camper in 1989.

The case was reopened in 2021, leading to their arrest.

The couple’s initial statements were inconsistent, and evidence suggests that the crime scene was staged.

“We have dedicated detectives who are committed to reviewing and investigating criminal cases where factors have prevented a timely resolution of justice.” Berkeley County Sheriff Duane Lewis said.

“These detectives have worked hard to be sure that the life of Justin Lee Turner is remembered and that his murderers are brought to justice.”

“We know for a fact that Justin was strangled to death. There were ligature marks on his neck. We recovered what we believe to be evidence of the murder. We have a lot of forensic evidence. We got here because of new technology and forensic medicine,” Sheriff Lewis stated.

“We are able to use some forensic testing that was not previously available, enabling them to tie in the murder weapon believed was used to strangle Justin to clothing and fabric on Justin’s clothing at the time of death,” Lewis said.

“You have to make that determination for yourself. But that is what it appears to us,” he added.

“He never got on that bus. He never got on that bus because he was dead inside that house,” Lewis said.

“I can’t think of a more tragic, horrendous murder. A 5-year-old boy.”

“[She] provided misinformation to investigators about her specific whereabouts on the morning of Friday, March 3, 1989, and provided inconsistent information about her activities,” the warrant read of Turner.

Both are currently in custody, awaiting a bond hearing within the next month.
