COLUMBIA — A Columbia church is planning a memorial for a homeless man who was found dead Sunday morning.
The memorial is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday at Wilkes Boulevard United Methodist Church, 702 Wilkes Blvd.
There will also be a vigil to remember those who have died homeless.
Police say they are investigating the death of the homeless man as a homicide. The body of 52-year-old Jerry Schneider was found Sunday morning at a homeless camp near I-70 and Range Line Street.
