Coroner: Gabbiee Swainson died of "homicidal violence"

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts confirmed that 15-year-old Gabbiee Swainson died as a result of homicidal violence.

The coroner plans to release a more in-depth report detailing the circumstances surrounding Gabbiee's death.

The Ridge View High School teen was missing for nearly a year. Her suspected killer, 53-year-old Freddie Grant, led investigators to her body in rural Kershaw County last Thursday.

Family and friends of Gabbiee have scheduled memorials in her memory. A candlelight vigil will be held in Elgin Wednesday at 8:15 p.m in a field at the intersection of Greenhill Road and Main Street.

Another vigil will be held on Sunday, Aug. 18. -- exactly one year after Gabbiee's disappearance. That will take place at Right Direction Church International on Broad River Road at 6 p.m.
