The Greenville County Sheriff’s Office has arrested two suspects in the death of Hall Eskew.
Eskew’s body was found near railroad tracks close to Chick Springs Road and Michell Drive in Taylors on December 26, 2018.
The coroner’s office said Eskew was shot in the head, and the sheriff’s office says Eskew was reported missing in Spartanburg County that same day.
According to investigators, Seuvarrggio Senwuez Rector, 30, and Harrison Christopher Gregory, 32, are charged in connection to the homicide.
Deputies said at least one suspect was familiar with Eskew, and both conspired to kill him before reportedly doing so.
Both suspects are in custody at the Greenville County Detention center, and investigators are still trying to figure out a motive.
Investigators said they face charges for murder, possession of a weapon during a violent crime, kidnapping and criminal conspiracy.
The victim’s brother Tucker Eskew, who is a political and communications strategist, served as Deputy Assistant to the President for Media Affairs and Global Communications under President George W. Bush.
Tucker Eskew released the following statement following the arrests:
Sheriff Brown and his team have been tirelessly pursuing the truth. We are grateful to them and anyone who has contributed to tonight’s arrests and our search for answers.
