MAULDIN, S.C. (WSPA) – The Mauldin Police Department is asking for the public’s assistance in solving a cold case from 2020.

We previously reported 29-year-old Alex Andrea Liddy was found deceased in her apartment at 10 Moore Street in Mauldin on Feb. 11, 2020.

Greenville County Deputy Coroner Jennifer Cason said when she arrived on the scene to investigate, she found the circumstances of Liddy’s death suspicious.

“She was in a bathtub, nearly nude, with underwear and a sock on and had obvious trauma to her body,” Cason said. Her death was ruled a homicide.

Liddy’s mom, with tears in her eyes, said even as time has passed, coping with the loss of her daughter never gets easier.

“She is so missed,” Liddy’s mom, Andrea Johnson said. “It is a sinking weight in your gut that just never, it doesn’t ever go away.”

Johnson said she believes Liddy’s death is the cause of losing two of her other daughters that same year due to emotional damage. She said the heartbreak she and her family felt and still feel today is unimaginable. She’s hoping soon to find answers.

“There are ten kids without their biological mother,” Johnson said. “Alex’s death was the beginning of destruction for our whole family.”

Detective Jenna Willson, working this case, said as time passes her job gets harder but she’s determined to seek justice for Liddy.

“I want to find answers for her,” Willson said. “I want to find answers for her family. There were people that care about her. There are people who want to know what happened. There are people who deserve closure.”

Johnson said she will never give up on finding those answers for her daughter. She said she hopes as she continues seeking leads and evidence alongside detective Willson, that someone will come forward with more information.

“The cycle of life doesn’t predict that we are supposed to bury our children,” Johnson said. “I miss her. I miss her every breath I take.”

Police said any information regarding Liddy’s whereabouts during the time of Feb. 9 to Feb. 11, 2020, could be helpful in the search for answers. 

If you have any information about Liddy’s whereabouts or death you are asked to contact Detective J Willson at 864-289-8983 (office), 864-775-9087 (cell). Police said if you would like to remain anonymous, that request will be respected.
