North Charleston police have scheduled a briefing this morning to update the public on the investigation into the killing of Matthew Renken at Port City Liquors.
The briefing will take place at 11 a.m. at police headquarters.
Renken’s body was found last month under a table inside the Dorchester Road liquor store. Broken Grand Marnier bottles and an unhooked phone were nearby.
A handgun also lay at his side, and friends thought the detail suggested that he died at his own hands. They were relieved on May 4 when the coroner ruled the death a homicide.
Early on April 23, officers responded after Renken’s concerned stepfather went to the store because Renken hadn’t returned to his James Island home the night before. By the time Nick Wackym found the body, Renken had been dead for hours.
His killer was long gone.
