Charleston, SC-Sixty-six year old Wilton “Bob” McFaddin, Jr. was a talented, educated, and very giving man. He was teacher who obtained several degrees including a master’s degree in piano and speech therapy. His sister said Bob always gave far and above what was required of him. Several years ago, while Bob was pursuing his degree for speech therapy at South Carolina State University, he befriended a custodian there named Gregory Keitt. A few years later, after Bob underwent heart valve surgery, he invited Keitt to live with him in exchange for help with the household chores. This arrangement seemed beneficial for both until Keitt’s behavior began to interfere with the odd couple’s relationship.
Bob told his sister that he feared Keitt and, due to his unstable and violent behavior, he wanted Keitt out of his apartment. Keitt had a criminal record dating back as far as 1986 with convictions of disorderly conduct, criminal domestic violence and driving under the influence. In February, Keitt was arrested for cocaine possession with intent to distribute. When Bob tried to get Keitt out of his apartment, he couldn’t because Keitt’s name was on the lease. Bob decided to leave and began packing to move to Columbia.
On April 10, Bob confronted Keitt about a missing jar of quarters he used for laundry. Keitt denied stealing the money jar and then began punching Bob knocking him unconscious. About thirty minutes later, Bob woke up to find Keitt gone and his blood all over the apartment. Bob called the police and when they arrived they noted that Bob had bruising to both eyes with a deep cut above the left one. Bob was alert and showing improvement on his way to the hospital, but due to the extreme loss of blood, his brain was traumatically impaired. Bob slipped back into unconsciousness the next morning. He never awoke and was on full life-support when he died. His exact cause of death is still pending. After his death, his organs were sent to help others in need all over the country. His sister said that Bob died as he lived…being selfless. Gregory Keitt, 41, was charged with murder and is being held without bail. R.I.P. Bob. You were a good friend and I’m sorry Keitt cared more about laundry change than your friendship.
