Reported Century Battery Victim Dies; His Brother Recently Died After Being Found Injured Outside Bar

August 1, 2021

An adult male found injured after an aggravated battery call in Century two weeks ago has died. And he’s the brother of the man that recently died after being found injured outside a Century bar.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to an aggravated battery report on Hilltop Road at Alger Road at 11:18 a.m. on July 18.

“A male was found with head injuries and unresponsive,” said ECSO spokesperson Amber Southard. “We are still investigating.”

The man passed away on July 28, 10 days after he was injured.

Family members tell NorthEscambia.com  the victim was Chris Hunter — the brother of Greg Hunter, the man that died days after he was found injured outside a Century bar.

The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office responded to Odom’s Bar on North Century Boulevard about 10 p.m. on June 19 to find 60-year old Greg Hunter down in the parking lot. At the time, investigators said it was a homicide, and that he had been seriously beaten and left unconscious. But the Medical Examiner’s Office now says Hunter died of natural causes (click for an earlier story).

Southard said as of right now, investigators do not think the two incidents were related.

    absolutley insane. beat to natural causes. that sounds stupid to even read out loud. ive known greg and chris over 30yrs. never could either deserved such a way to die. perfect, no. who is? they were both good hearted guys. its unbelivable to know 2 brother, 2 beatings, 2 deaths. weeks apart, natural causes? what a total miscarriage of justice. how long before it happens again. the message being sent, beat someone to injuries causing death of another. its fine, naturally.

    Survivors in this family are likely keeping a sharp eye over their shoulders.
    Sure sounds fishy to me and my friends.
    “No connection….” mighty inconvenient for the victims.
    Vendeta, Revenge, Feud, Somebody done something to Somebody.
    Gotta be more to this as took so long to determine the fella at the bar was not a homcide.
    Fishy….

    Alright, don’t believe to much in coincidences…. So what/who exactly is the connection to these brothers? Somethings going on in Century…..hmmmm

    What the heck is going on??? Two brothers are dead within a few weeks apart. Both from some type of battery or “natural causes”… Sounds like we got a killer on the loose. Operation: Killer of the Century.

    How do Investigators do not think these two incidents are related? Two brothers get the crap beat out of them, even if one brother died of natural causes. Seems to me they were targeted.

    This sounds like an episode off of Yellowstone someone owns the town the medical examiner and also the sheriff’s department find them you’ll find your killer

    Their mother died last year. Jesus saves!

  12. JustSaying on August 1st, 2021 8:06 am

    Not connected? The brothers are trying to find out what happened to their own, may be getting too close? There’s some more in the family…

    My condolences to the family for the loss of both family members. Keep pushing the investigation, now maybe the first case should be reopened, something very strange.

    Wondering if this one will be natural too….

  16. Well on August 1st, 2021 6:55 am

    WOW !!!
    Just a coincidence right, 2 brothers beat to death in a month.

  17. Debbie on August 1st, 2021 5:46 am

    Just yesterday there was an article on this page reporting that his brothers death had been determined to be from natural causes after first being reported as a homicide . Now it looks like the very same thing with this man . Both found appearing to have been beaten and unresponsive taken to the hospital and after a few days both passed away . Something just doesn’t feel right . I hope law enforcement gives this the attention it seems to need . I feel so bad for the family of these two men . They probably feel like they are living a nightmare and can’t wake up . I truly hope they get all the answers they deserve .
