Still no answers in 83-year-old's murder

EASTOVER, SC (WIS) - Inside Evelyn Harbin's home is antique pottery, decorations and memories -- images now overshadowed by her murder Friday.

It's a scary thought Harbin's granddaughter, Gina, can't shake.

"You just can't accept this," said Gina. "Just can't get over it. I can't sleep. I keep seeing her little face and how scared she must have been."

Gina and her family were visiting Harbin from out of town. When they got inside the house, they found her body in a pool of blood.

"Whoever did this, they don't know what they did to those little kids that had to see their grandmother like that," said Gina.

Gina wanted Harbin to move closer to her, but she was happy nestled in her own home on Pond Drive.

"When she'd wake up, first thing she would do is open her little blinds, brush her teeth, get her coffee and sit on this chair and read," said Gina.

Harbin's daily routine ended forever Friday when investigators say the 83-year-old was struck with a sharp object. After the attack, authorities say the killer stole Harbin's flat-screen TV and her burgundy Chevy Trailblazer.

The Richland County Sheriffs Department needs your help finding the person who murdered Gina's grandmother who was lovingly known as "Nana."

"She was like my momma," said Gina.
