New details expected in Columbia pastor's beating death

COLUMBIA, SC (WCSC) - COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - The Columbia Police Department and Richland County Sheriff's Department are holding a joint news conference at 3:30pm Friday to discuss new details in the death of Reverend Tryon Eichelberger.

In early May, 2009, police say someone went into 87-year-old Reverend Eichelberger's Isaac Street home and attacked him. He died about two and a half months later.

Nothing was taken from Eichelberger's home, and even his wallet was left with money in it.

Shortly after the crime, police released a sketch of the person they believe did it. They described the suspect as being about 6'1" tall, in his late 20s to mid 30s with short hair.
