One Willow Spring homicide victim identified

Posted June 27, 2011

— Wake County authorities on Monday identified one of two men found dead Friday in a Willow Spring home.

Roger Trujillo Perez, 30, of 2832 N.C. Highway 42, and another man, who hasn't yet been identified, were found shot to death inside Perez' home early Friday.

Investigators with the Wake County Sheriff's Office continue to follow leads in the case, and they said they believe the shootings weren't random acts of violence.

Property records list the homeowner as Judith Dickens, who has a Rockville, Md., address.

Another man who lived in the home, Miguel Vasquez, 63, has been charged with possession with intent to manufacture, sell or deliver marijuana, authorities said.

    Kind words won't change the reality that this state is a destination for organized crime from south of the border. Don't mistake disgust with lack of compassion, or indifference to the value of human life. We have no Border Patrol, law enforcement has it's hands tied, and a discussion of this very real problem is usually met with cries of bigotry and racism. If any would doubt these claims are valid, move out here where law enforcement isn't as visible as it is in larger towns and cities. The less-densely populated areas are overrun with this type of activity, which is commonly overlooked by most people because on the surface, it looks like the guy next door just gets up and goes to work like everybody else....until something like this happens. Criminals you don't know or associate with don't come by your house and shoot you for no reason. Most folks around here don't have 15-passenger vans drive up in their yard at 3:00 am to drop off a load of new "immigrants" either. ;)

    I might guess that maybe the guy living there and growing and selling pot has somethingto do with it - DUH !!!

    I truly hope that if god forbid this happened to any of us or a family member, that people would say kinder words than the one's you don't seem to mind sharing. I guess we really are so de-sensitized that we can't fathom anymore that a human being was killed. All we ever seem to worry about is their legal status, financial status or color. Truly, God help us!!!

    " Does this happen everywhere around here? "...... Well lets just say this happens all the time where they are from.

    How strange....this was not a random act of violence, so why would somebody stop by and murder two people? Does this happen everywhere around here? Reminds me of the guy up the street that was shot by "a person he didn't know"....he claims his attacker just drove up into his yard, knocked on his door, and shot him. For no apparent reason. It had absolutely NOTHING to do with organized crime. Nada. Zilch. Zero. The deputies believed the story. Never mind the fact that this former shooting victim is currently in prison for dealing in controlled substances, it was only a coincidence. Folks just randomly stop by for a shooting party from time to time. Our culture is so violent. America is such a dangerous place. ;)

    Just chekkin out the scenery: probably because your comment is incredibly ignorant.

    hmmm...censors didn't like my comment. I asked if the homeowner could bae charged with something since she obviously didn't do a thorough background check or ignored the fact they were (probably) illegal and allowed them to rent anyway. What's wrong with that? These moderators should be censored.............

    He is actually a friend of mine and that is his real name. Just because he is Hispanic doesn't mean that can not be his real name.
