Beating Victim Remains on Life Support

web posted April 8, 2014

MERRIWETHER It has been a little over a week since a handicapped man was found beaten and unconscious at his Currytown Road home on March 30. The crime scene tape has been removed from around the home, but little else has changed, including the condition of the victim, Gregory Wallace. According to information from family members, he remains in a coma and on full life-support.

The case is under active investigation involving the Sheriff's Criminal Investigative Division and the lead investigator would not offer any other information on Monday. Early information stated there were persons of interest in the case, however, no follow-up information has been forthcoming.

Wallace was found on Sunday morning around 9:20 am on March 30 by a woman who gave him a ride to church each week. Wallace was rushed to the Trauma Center in Augusta where he underwent surgery and has yet to regain consciousness. Something investigators are hoping happens soon. With no other witness, Wallace is the only one who can tell them what happened.

The incident is believed to have taken place sometime late Saturday night or early that Sunday morning. There was no forced entry into the home as the woman coming to check on Wallace found the front door unlocked and a wallet lying on the floor. She observed blood in a number of rooms before finding Wallace face down in a pool of blood.

It is unknown how long he laid on the floor before being discovered.

In spite of the lack of witnesses, the Sheriff's Crime Scene Unit and investigator, along with other investigators, combed every inch of the house collecting photographic and physical evidence, including fingerprints and a knife seized at the scene. There have been no reports that the knife was used in the attack at this time.

Where the forensic evidence is leading the investigators is unknown. The standard answer at this time is, "it is currently under investigation."

Family members and friends using social media continue to send prayers and well wishes to Mr. Wallace and his family members.

Edgefield Daily will continue to follow the case and have any breaking news when it becomes available.
