Nationwide Alert

Suspect Stephen Stanko

A nationwide alert continues for 37-year-old ex-convict Stephen Stanko.

South Carolina police say he's a suspect in a weekend crime spree that left two people dead and a teenage girl recovering from a sexual assault.

Police say Stanko was released from prison last year after serving nearly nine-years for kidnapping.

Authorities say he is considered armed and dangerous.

Stanko is suspected of strangling a female librarian he lived with and shooting a man to death before stealing his pickup truck.
