If you search Aiken County

If you search Aiken County records, Mr. Laird has quite the history of domestic violence, aggravated assault and probation violations, among other things. Somehow I doubt his story that a guy asked him for money and just stabbed him when he refused to give it to him.

And he probably wasn't white,

And he probably wasn't white, bald, and wearing blue jeans either!

There are two Leroy Lairds

There are two Leroy Lairds that are cousins. One is a very good guy, so let's see which one this is before spreading gossip.

@kpayne27

Are they the same age? Because if they aren't, this is the same guy. (and both have arrest records...)
