Authorities in South Carolina say they have arrested two men on suspicion of fatally shooting a man whose body was found alongside railroad tracks in Greenville County last month.
According to WSPA, Hall Eskew was discovered with a gunshot wound to the head on December 26 near Chick Springs Road and Mitchell Drive in Taylors.
Eskew had been reported missing from Spartanburg County earlier the same day.
An investigation led to the identification of 30-year-old Seuvarrggio Senwuez Rector and 32-year-old Harrison Christopher Gregory as suspects in the case.
Police reports indicate the victim knew at least one of the men, who authorities believe crafted a plot to kill the victim.
Senwuez and Gregory were arrested and booked into the Greenville County Detention Center where they remained behind bars as of the latest updates available. The suspects appeared in court early Saturday, where a judge denied bond.
They are expected to face criminal charges including murder, kidnapping, criminal conspiracy, and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.
Eskew’s brother is a former communications aide for President George W. Bush and currently works as a political strategist. He released a statement in the wake of the suspects’ arrest.
“Sheriff [Johnny Mack] Brown and his team have been tirelessly pursuing the truth,” Tucker Eskew said. “We are grateful to them and anyone who has contributed to tonight’s arrests and our search for answers.”
Initial police reports did not include a suspected motive for the violent crime.
