CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The Horry County Coroner’s Office held its yearly memorial service for Baby Boy Horry at 1 p.m. on Friday, December 4, at Hillcrest Cemetery located on Highway 544, according to Horry County Coroner Robert Edge.

Baby Boy Horry, who lived anywhere between two hours and two days, was found wrapped in a Bath & Body Works bag by utility workers around 4:15 p.m. on December 4, 2008, off of Highway 544 on Meadowbrook Drive in Conway.

Baby Boy Horry was laid to rest at Hillcrest Cemetery on Thursday, December 18. Reverend Wayne Brown of First Baptist Church of North Myrtle Beach led the funeral.

"I think I speak on behalf of the community: There is a lot of mystery in it, and misunderstanding," Brown said. "I don't understand how it could happen, or why it happened."

The HCCO has held a memorial service every year since 2008 to not only remember Baby Boy Horry but because they hope someone will be able to shed light on his death. Local residents and businesses funded Baby Boy Horry’s burial.

Reverend Brown and the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club attended the memorial service on Friday.

If you or anyone has any information about Baby Boy Horry, you are urged to call the Horry County Police Department at (843) 915-TIPS. Callers can remain anonymous.
