Authorities investigate Fuquay deaths as homicides
Posted July 23, 2014
Fuquay-Varina, N.C. — The Wake County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that investigators are treating the weekend deaths of two men in Fuquay-Varina as homicides.
Arthur Lee Brown, 78, and David Eugene McKoy, 66, were found shot to death Saturday afternoon at 236 Howard Road.
Authorities initially called the case a "death investigation."
The two men were discovered after Ruby Bullock, Brown's sister-in-law, was asked check on him when his wife couldn't reach him by phone.
Bullock said the home's front glass sliding door had been shattered, and it appeared the men had been robbed.
She found Arthur Brown dead in a bedroom, and her nephew, who lives across the street, found McKoy's body in a second bedroom.
The two victims lived together and worked at A.L. Brown Cement.
Arthur Brown founded the company and, family members said, reached out to McKoy, giving him a job and a place to stay.
