Brenda Brown of Greer Dies Weeks After Brutal Attack

A Greer woman died at the hospital Thursday morning two weeks after a vicious beating left her naked and bloody on her bedroom floor.  Brenda Brown, 49, was found unconscious in her Greer home on October 28, and the assault may have occurred the day before.

WYFF4 reports on the investigation:

“You’re always hopeful that you can get some information from the victim and are able to follow up on that, but unfortunately, we were unable to follow up with any information from her,” Lt. Jim Holcombe with the Greer Police Department told WYFF.

Investigators have not yet identified or located any possible suspects.

“We are getting some information from people in the neighborhood and are following what little information we do have,” said Holcombe.

An autopsy is being performed, and the Coroner’s Office believes the attack was carried out with a blunt object.  Brenda Brown’s death is being treated as a homicide, Greer’s first in 2009.

Neighbors are nervous as police have still not determined whether Brown knew her attacker. Residents of the Poplar Drive area should continue to be vigilant in protecting themselves, their homes, and their loved ones.

As always, tipsters are urged to call Greer Police at 848-2155.
