VERSIONS OF THIS BILL
May 8, 2014
S. Printed 5/8/14--H. [SEC 5/13/14 8:22 AM]
Read the first time April 30, 2014.
To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (S. 1190) to request that the Department of Transportation name the interchange located at the juncture of Interstate 26 and United States Highway 601 in Orangeburg County, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same and recommend that the same do pass:
LISTON D. BARFIELD for Committee.
TO REQUEST THAT THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE INTERCHANGE LOCATED AT THE JUNCTURE OF INTERSTATE 26 AND UNITED STATES HIGHWAY 601 IN ORANGEBURG COUNTY "SCHP PATROLMAN FIRST CLASS ROY O. CAFFEY MEMORIAL INTERCHANGE" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS AT THIS INTERCHANGE THAT CONTAIN THE WORDS "SCHP PATROLMAN FIRST CLASS ROY O. CAFFEY MEMORIAL INTERCHANGE".
Whereas, Patrolman First Class Roy Odes Caffey joined the South Carolina Highway Patrol on January 16, 1947; and
Whereas, on October 8, 1972, he was fatally wounded by unknown persons during a traffic stop in Orangeburg County. A passing motorist discovered his body; and
Whereas, the case remained unsolved with no suspects until it gained national attention in 1997, from its reenactment on the television show "Unsolved Mysteries". On February 16, 1997, a woman was arrested who claimed to have been present when Patrolman Caffey was murdered by two men, both of whom were deceased; and
Whereas, Patrolman Caffey was a native of Temple, Texas, and a twenty-five year veteran of the patrol who had previously served with the United States Navy; and
Whereas, he is survived by his son Robert Caffey, his daughter-in-law Ann, and their children Scott Carlyle Caffey and Ashlyn McCoy Caffey; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to memorialize Patrolman First Class Roy Odes Caffey by naming a highway interchange in his honor. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the Senate, the House of Representatives concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly request that the Department of Transportation name the rest stops located on Interstate 26 East at mile marker 150 and on Interstate 26 West near mile marker 152 in Orangeburg County "SCHP Patrolman First Class Roy O. Caffey Memorial Rest Stop" and erect appropriate markers or signs at these rest stops that contain the words "SCHP Patrolman First Class Roy O. Caffey Memorial Rest Stop".
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
