Bowling, 22, a student in BCC's licensed practical nursing program, had known Bolsko, 24, for about a week when her death occurred. She had met him at a skating rink where he worked as a disc jockey. Bowling worked part-time at Dosher Memorial Hospital in Southport and lived with her par ents, Wayne and Ann Bowling, in Bolivia. Stephanie Ayers. 23, who pleaded guilty to to being an accessory after the fact to murder and to stealing Bowling's car, was sentenced to 20 years. Ayers, who has cerebral palsy, did not testify; however, a video taped statement she made to police was summarized by New Hanover County Detective Carlton Floyd. Floyd said Botsko, Aycrs and Bowling drove Bowling's car to a muddy trail off River Road to go camping. It was there that Bowling was shot, according to Aycrs, after she laughed when Botsko fell in the mud. However, Botsko's lawyer, Helen Hinn, said Botsko claims Aycrs ac cidentally shot Bowling the first two times and that Botsko shot her twice more as she lay motionless on the ground. Hinn said the two went to the trail to largei-shoot with a .22 caliber re volver registered to Ayers. New Hanover Assistant District Attorney John Carriker agreed to the pleas for Bousko and Ayers, admit ting in court that the state's case had weaknesses and that a possibility ex isted that the two could have been acquitted in a jury trial. A sundial on the Brunswick Community College campus stands as a memorial to Bowling, ll was a gift from her nursing classmates to the college. Bicycling Burglar Stalked Carolina Shores Fairways A Brunswick County sheriff's detective said Monday that he had un covered the identity of a man who allegedly rode a bicycle from South Carolina and along golf coursc fairways to burglarize homes in Carolina Shores last winter. Larry Robert Dunn, 42, of Albemarle confessed to the burglaries af ter Det. John Ingram located him last week in the Horry County, S.C., jail, where he was being held on charges of breaking into homes in the Myrtle Beach area. Ingram said he was able to connect Dunn to the Carolina Shores bur glaries after the detective discovered a piece of jewelry from one of the thefts at a Myrtle Beach pawn shop. "He even confessed to one burglary that we hadn't received a report on yet," Ingram said. Dunn recently moved from Albemarle to Little River, S.C., where he has been living in a motel with "a female accomplice," Ingram said. She allegedly pawned the jewelry that led to the arrest, but has not been charged. Ingram said Dunn had no car and would pedal a bicycle to Carolina Shores, then wait until dark to ride up streets or along the golf course fairways looking for homes to burglarize. When he found a likely target, he would bang on windows and doors to make sure no one was home before breaking in, Ingram said. "He would steal what he could carry in a pillow sack and ride off," Ingram said. More than $6,000 worth of cash, jewelry and other small items were reported stolen in the six break-ins. The burglaries took place between late January and early April. Dunn has been charged with six counts of second-degree burglary. He remains in Horry County Jail on similar charges, Ingram said.
