North Myrtle Beach PD gives more details on last September’s murder

North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina – Authorities in North Myrtle Beach have given more information about the tragic case of Kristin Laymon, a 53-year-old woman from Georgia whose life was fatally cut short last September. Bornold Eberhart, 42, has been caught and charged with murdering Laymon, according to the police. He is being held at the J. Reuben Long Detention Center without bail right now. He is the main and only suspect in the case.

Laymon was last seen entering an elevator alone at the Club Wyndham, situated at 410 South Ocean Boulevard, in the early hours of September 23 at around 2:12 a.m. It has been determined that Laymon and the accused Eberhart got to the Club Wyndham Ocean Boulevard at the same time on September 22. At a news conference on Thursday, NMBPD Lt. Mike Swarthout said that while it is thought that the two were not dating, there are signs that they may have had a close relationship as they were sharing a hotel room.

Police said that things probable escalated after an argument between Laymon and Eberhart in the early hours of September 23. Soon after the fight, Laymon was seen getting into the elevator alone. Police now have a reason to believe that Laymon died in the early hours of September 23.

Detectives think that Laymon’s body was hidden in the trunk of Eberhart’s car when he went back to Georgia on September 24. Laymon’s body was finally found outside of Atlanta on March 9, but the reason for her death has not been made public yet.

The investigation into the case started after Laymon’s daughter reported her missing on October 9 after not hearing from her for a long time, reportedly since September 22. Also, no bank transactions were recorded during this period, and Laymon’s account was found to be overdrawn with an unknown $1,000 bitcoin charge. Laymon also got several emails telling her that her account was overdrawn.

The Duluth Police Department reached out to the NMBPD on November 8 after Laymon’s daughter found a hotel charge on her mother’s bank account. This was the first step in the investigation. Detectives then focused on North Myrtle Beach stay after this finding to further investigate Laymon’s disappearance.
