EASLEY — An Easley man was found shot dead inside his home last week, and police are still looking for those responsible.

Clarence [cointent_lockedcontent]Berry Holcombe, 54, of 112 Planters Way, died from a single gunshot wound to the chest, according to Pickens County coroner Kandy Kelley.

Pickens County Sheriff’s Office chief deputy Creed Hashe said a neighbor called 911 at about 12:30 p.m. on Dec. 29 after seeing Holcombe on the floor and unresponsive through a window of his home.

EMS and the sheriff’s office responded to the home and entered to render aid, but found Holcombe dead with a wound on his chest consistent with a small-caliber gunshot.

Hashe said no weapon was found at the scene and there were no obvious signs of forced entry into the home.

A team of sheriff’s office detectives worked throughout the night in an effort to track down leads and interview multiple people who “could perhaps shed any light on the circumstances surrounding Mr. Holcombe’s death,” Hashe said.

As of press time, no charges have been filed in the case.

Anyone with information about the crime is asked to call the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office at (864) 898-5500 or Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIMESC. A Crimestoppers tip that leads to the arrest of the person or persons responsible for Holcombe’s death could result in a cash reward.[/cointent_lockedcontent]
