Settlement reached in Skinful Halloween event lawsuit

JAMES ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A settlement has been reached in a lawsuit against organizers of the Skinful Halloween party.

Kenneth Froehlich filed the lawsuit against the organizers in 2012 after his son, Beau Froehlich was killed in 2011 while crossing Folly Road after leaving the event.

Attorney Jody McKnight, who represented the Froehlich estate, said the money will go to Froehlich's 6-year-old son.

McKnight said part of the settlement agreement was not to release the dollar amount of the settlement.

According to investigators, Matthew Fisher was driving near the intersection of Folly and South Grimball roads around 3 a.m. on Oct. 23, 2011 when he struck Froehlich.

Authorities say Fisher then drove to a fire station on Folly Road.

Fisher died nearly seven months later after he was hit by a car while riding his bike on Folly Road.

He was out on bond for the drunk driving accident when he died.
