CONWAY, SC (WBTW) – Police were still searching Sunday for the man they say was involved in the homicide of a retired Conway police officer, law enforcement says.
Horry County authorities say Eric Kwajae-Mikhail Faulk, 22, of Conway is wanted for murder in connection with the incident.
Officers responded to a home on Long Branch Road around 6 p.m. Thursday, the department said. That’s where they found a victim who had ‘injuries consistent with a homicide.’
@ConwayPoliceSC thanks to all who reached out with words of support while we prepare to assist with the funeral for Lt. Odell Cochran (ret). Our flags are lowered and our hearts heavy. Thoughts and prayers to the family.— Conway Police SC (@ConwayPoliceSC) March 8, 2020
The Horry County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as James Odell Cochran, 65, of Conway.
Lt. James Odell Cochran worked for the Conway Police Department for more than 38 years. Longtime employees of the department tell News13 he was a great mentor to many officers.
Faulk may be driving a 2004 Chevrolet K1500 Silverado with SC tag FFL-471. Police consider him armed and dangerous. They tell the public to call 9-1-1 and to not approach if they see him.
Anyone with information about Faulk’s whereabouts is asked to call 843-248-1520.
