Murder of Silene Eaddy


On April 15, 2004, around 7 to 7:30 p.m.15-year-old Silene Eaddy left her home in Hopkins, South Carolina. She was supposed to walk around the corner to the neighbors home. It was unknown where she went and what she was doing.

Fire Fighters would respond to a brush fire at a wooded area at the intersection of Pincushion and Montgomery Roads on April 17th. They would discover a girl lying face down who had been set on fire. It had been Silene. She had been beaten and her lungs had soot in them leading them to believe she was still alive when she was set on fire. Investigators believe that she knew the person or persons who killed her. It's believed that she was set on fire to destroy evidence.

She was described as a "sweet, but lost child" and seemed to have changed after her foster father died. Friends would look for advice from her. She wanted to find her biological mom and didn't feel she fit in. She had run away several times from home. She was starting to hang around the wrong people.
