Update May 18, 2018
Jody Linn Holt, Age 20, of Kershaw has been arrested and charged with Possession with Intent to Distribute Marijuana and Unlawful Neglect of a child. The charges arose during the murder investigation and Holt was arrested yesterday at the Sheriff’s Office. The investigation thus far has shown that Holt and the murder victim, Vincent Lambert arranged to meet one of the suspects on Pine Ridge Dr. for the purpose of selling one of the suspects a quantity of unlawful drugs. Upon arrival at the meeting location, the three suspects attempted to rob Holt and Lambert of the drugs and shots were fired. Holt was wounded and Lambert was killed. Immediately following the shooting and prior to the arrival of law enforcement, Holt attempted to hide the drugs which were later found by investigators. During this incident Holt chose to drive her 4 year old son to the location to conduct the drug transaction which placed her child at unreasonable risk of harm affecting the child’s life, physical or mental health, or safety. Holt is currently incarcerated at the Lancaster County Detention Center where she is being held on a $22,000 surety bond.
