Dunn, N.C. — Three people have been charged in connection with the Thursday discovery of two bodies in Harnett County.
Paige Nicole Carter, 26, of 1030 Spring Branch Road in Dunn has been charged with one count of failure to report a death.
According to the Harnett County Sheriff's Office, Robin Brown and Michael Denning with also be charged with failure to report a death.
The charges stem from the discovery of a decomposed body off Cool Springs Road near Broadway on Aug. 17.
The body, which authorities said appeared to be that of a woman in her 20s or 30s, was found as authorities investigated the death of Marcus Fisher, whose body was found in the back yard of a home on Bailey road in Coats just after midnight Thursday.
Authorities did not know if Fisher’s death was linked to the death of the unidentified woman. Brown, Denning, Carter and Fisher were all acquainted, according to the Harnett County Sheriff's Office.
The woman’s body has been sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office to determine cause of death.
Brown and Denning are in custody at the Harnett County Detention Center under a $50,0000 secured bond pending their court date scheduled for Sept. 5. Authorities said the men were aquainted with Carter and Fisher.
