Fayetteville, N.C. — An Army soldier was charged with murder Tuesday in a weekend hit-and-run crash that killed a Fayetteville man.
Fayetteville police said received a tip from social media pages that led to the arrest of Edward William Hall, 35, who is assigned to the 50th Signal Battalion at Fort Bragg.
Police had been searching for a black Cadillac Escalade or similar vehicle involved in the hit-and-run that killed David Keller, 54. Police said Keller was driving his 2002 Yamaha motorcycle through the intersection of Morganton and Skibo roads about 4 a.m. Saturday when another vehicle hit him.
Investigators said the tipster told them a vehicle matching the description of the one that fled the scene was at a Fayetteville body shop.
Hall was charged with second-degree murder and felonious hit-and-run. He was in the Cumberland County jail Wednesday under a $100,000 bond and was scheduled to make a first court appearance at 2:30 p.m.
