— Knightdale police still have no suspects in the beating death of a Domino's Pizza assistant manager, although they are looking at several persons of interest, Chief Shawn Brown said Thursday.

Kenneth "Kenny" Ring, 24, died Jan. 11, two days after a delivery driver found him on the floor of the Domino's store in the Widewaters Commons Shopping Center, at 2001 Widewaters Parkway.

Investigators said Ring was injured in an apparent robbery, but detectives have searched Ring's cell phone and home in an attempt to identify a suspect.

Brown said investigators are still seeking leads in the case and want to speak to anyone in the area late Jan. 8 or early Jan. 9 – particularly from midnight to 12:39 a.m.

Anyone with information, regardless of how insignificant it might seem, should call Knightdale police at 919-217-2261.

A reward for information leading to an arrest in the case is more than $20,000.

    "No surprises here: with such poor police work being done in the area, it will be a wonder if they ever find a suspect. I just feel bad for the family."

    What a stupid comment. Why don't you go figure it out instead of "just feeling bad".

    "Why shouldn't they search his home?"

    Why would there be any clues at his home if it happened at work? I mean, if they DO find something, I'm definitely going to be the first to applaud their thorough-ness but I guess I'm just not seeing the purpose that it serves.

    I was wondering a few days ago if there is any connection to this crime and the Kathy Tate crime and now here is a posting of it.

    It WILL come out in the end. Because that is their job. They will figure out.

    Figures, some schmuck has to criticize the detective work. They obviously could do a better job. I mean really, they watch CSI so they know they can solve all the crimes now and it only takes 60 minutes minus commercial time.

    Why shouldn't they search his home?

    Give them a break. Now, I don't know what details they have on this case, but if this is a completely random crime with no witnesses - that's going to take a while to solve.

    I understand they're being thorough but how is checking his home going to help if he was beaten to death at work? And what happened with that other guy that got beat up and Domino's was saying he needed to pay back that money? Any updates?

    It said 20K reward, I wonder if Domino's every upped their original measley, slap in the face, 5K offering or if that amount came from other sources as well. I realize these are franchise businesses, but a company of Domino's size, to offer 5K reward for a young man murdered while working for them - on their property? They should be ashamed.
