New reward offered in Sunhouse robberies, murders

    A new $5,000 reward has been offered by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) in connection with apparently unrelated robberies and murders at two Sounhouse convenience stores in Horry County.
    Information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the Jan. 2 hold-up and killing at the Sunhouse at 7406 Hwy 905 in Red Bluff; and the Jan. 25 Sunhouse at 2697 Oak Street, just outside of Conway; will qualify for the reward, an ATF news release said.
   In the Red Bluff case two men who met no resistance from the clerk, Bala Gopal Paruchuri, shot him dead before leaving the business, the ATF said.
    Trisha Dawn Stull was shot dead after two gunmen forced her into the Conway area store and forced her to open the register and safe. Stull was shot in the back of her head by one of the gunmen.
     These violent crimes are being investigated by ATF and the Horry County Police Department.
     Anyone with information about this crime should contact ATF at 1-888-ATF-TIPS (888-283-8477), or Horry County Police Tips at 843-915-8477 or Horry County Police Department Dispatch as 843-248-1520.  All calls will be kept confidential.
    For more on these cases see Wednesday’s Tabor-Loris Tribune in print and online.
