    If you pull up Wakegov.com you can clearly see that Massey Farm road IS in Knightdale, it's ETJ is Knightdale. That area has been nothing but trouble for a long time.

    Country Hearth Inn is behind K'dale Seafood & BBQ, and across from the Texaco station just off Hwy. 64 at the Old Knight Rd. traffic light.

    Ok if Massey Farm Rd is not Knightdale then please tell me what town this person was found dead? OH yea the point to the whole story was there is a dead person not the geographical area of Knightdale...... Thanks for trying to be accurate.....

    It matters what agency is lead in the investigation, which guvment's crime stats that it goes on, etc.

    You know what, google map it, Knightdale is north, south, east and west of this "donut hole". I am finished bickering with you, you sound like a politician. The point of this story is that a man died, not where he died, really what does the location matter. Now lets find the killer, we should start by looking in the area that is "NOT in Knightdale" but you know the area which is surrounded by the town of Knightdale.

    I'm being ACCURATE.

    wa4mjf, you are just being petty. Does it really matter if it is actually the town of Knightdale or a street in the city of Knightdale that uses Knightdale for mail purposes.....

  • RonnieR Feb 9, 2009

    Well, suckafree, how come East Wake Fire and Rescue was sent last night and not Knightdale Public Safety?

    awok, one can have the address of a town or city for mail purposes and not live in that town.

    Massey Farm Rd is in Knightdale. Just because the sheriff's office is working this case doesn't mean that it didn't happen in Knightdale. I'm with you AWOKASCH. I grew on what was Jackas RD that is now OKR which is Knightdale also. Massey Farm rd is across 64 HWY from the OKR.... IT's KNIGHTDALE
