A handgun and some spilled Grand Marnier were found near the bloodied body of a North Charleston liquor store owner Monday morning, according to a report, but detectives still have not said why they consider his death suspicious.

Matt Renken, 39, of Charleston died on a gunshot wound sometime the night before at Port City Liquors at 4400 Dorchester Road. His stepfather found the body and called 911 just after 8 a.m.

A responding officer from the North Charleston Police Department reported that the body was in an office and that a large, drying pool of blood had formed around the man’s head. A toppled case of Grand Marnier rested on the floor in a pool of liquor.

Renken was lying on his left side, next to a black gun.

The Charleston County Coroner’s Office has not ruled the case a homicide, and police officials wouldn’t discuss any of the details. Deputy Coroner Kimberly Rhoton refused to say how many gunshot wounds Renken suffered.

“The incident remains a suspicious death,” police spokesman Spencer Pryor said. “There is no new or additional information.”
