Oconee County Sheriff’s Office Names Person of Interest in Oconee Nuclear Station Incident

Doyle Wayne Whisenhunt

(Walhalla, SC)-------------------------------------Oconee County Sheriff Mike Crenshaw has named a person of interest in an investigation into an incident that occurred last night at the Oconee Nuclear Station.

During a news conference at the Law Enforcement Center in Walhalla, Sheriff Crenshaw named 66 year old Doyle Wayne Whisenhunt of Lockesburg, AR as a person of interest in the investigation.

The E-911/Communications Center received a call from the Nuclear Station around 8:05pm last night and dispatched Deputies to the scene. According to information obtained during the investigation, a white male driving a silver 2002 Toyota Camry drove through the exit side of the main entrance administrative gate.

The subject drove to a support area outside the perimeter of the facility. Evidence obtained during the investigation indicated that the driver did breach the administrative gate but did not breach the secure area of the facility itself.

According to Deputies, the driver then drove out of the exit of the plant and was followed by a security officer. After driving back onto Highway 183, the driver then drove into Pickens County and pulled onto some property on Jones Mill Road, where shots were reportedly fired.

Investigators have determined that the shots were fired by a property owner on Jones Mill Road. No shots were fired on the property of the Oconee Nuclear Station nor did any security officers or law enforcement discharge their weapons.

The silver 2002 Toyota Camry had an Arkansas tag of 380VDR, according to information obtained during the investigation. The Sheriff’s Office issued this information to surrounding agencies.

About one hour before tonight’s incident, the same vehicle and driver also showed up on the property of the Oconee Nuclear Station. After being asked to leave, the driver drove off.
