Gibson was last seen leaving a friend’s home on Battle Lane on Aug. 25, 2015, and was reported missing the next day. His body was discovered in Eisenhardt’s kitchen Aug. 27 by Eisenhardt’s mother, who had returned from an out-of-state trip.
Gibson died from massive head injuries caused by blunt-force trauma, a medical examiner determined.
Eisenhardt was arrested Aug. 29 in Fairfield Township. The next month, officials revealed Eisenhardt took time to cover Gibson’s body with a sheet and then “robbed him of drugs.”
He is in the Cumberland County jail.
