Bobby Sabb is currently housed at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center (ASGDC) charged with Murder. DNA evidence collected at the scene helped identify Sabb as a suspect.
The charge stems from an emergency call for service shortly before noon on May 30, 2021 at the Super 8 motel located at 5719 Fairfield Road.
An employee called 9-1-1 after discovering an unresponsive man inside one of the rooms. EMS arrived on scene and officially pronounced the man deceased.
CPD investigators have identified a female person of interest in connection with the case. Once located, investigators will interview her to determine what information she may have about the crime.
The Richland County Coroner’s Office (RCCO) will positively identify the man and determine the cause of death.
