— The Wayne County Sheriff's Office is investigating a double homicide after a couple was found dead inside a home Tuesday evening in Mount Olive.

Deputies responded to 638 Waller Road , where Tyrone Beamon Jr., 27, and Shaundrea Juanette Milhouse, 21, of Knightdale, were found dead inside.

Two children, ages 3 and 1, were also inside the house but were not injured, authorities said. They were put in the care of family members.

A man who said he was Beamon's cousin said Wednesday that Beamon's mother had been trying to reach him for several days and went to his home to check on him around 3:30 p.m. She found the couple in a bathtub and the children unharmed.

Beamon's mother, Wanda Green, did not want to talk about the case Wednesday, saying only "I'm just going to miss my son. The way his life was taken, he didn't deserve it."

Authorities have not commented on a cause of death or possible motive for the crime. Crime scene investigators were seen at the home Wednesday morning dusting a door for fingerprints.

Autopsies were scheduled Wednesday to determine the cause of death for Beamon and Milhouse.

Neighbors said Beamon moved into the house a couple months ago and that he and Milhouse were dating.

Anyone with information about the homicides is asked to call the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office at 919-731-1481 or Wayne County Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.

    I would hardly say there is a crime wave in mt. Olive. Crime happens everywhere & sometimes to descent people simple because dirt bags can't stand to see people do better & want to drag everyone else down with them. I don't know if that's the case here but i left goldsboro because if you didn't smoke pot & drink all weekend & have a dead end job then you "thought you were better than everyone else" & guess what...i have a great life now& they are all still doing the same old things so i guess i am better!

    And the Horrible Crime Wave sweeping across the USA Continues...Sadly. Not a peep from the usual rabble rousers.

    I feel so bad for those children...having to be in the house that long not knowing what in the world is going on or what to do! I hope they both have happy futures...

    I grew up in Mount Olive and visit the area often as I still have family there. Mount Olive is a much different place than it used to be but of course with time comes change. When I was growing up, it was the summer time migrant workers that everyone thought brought the property value down and now its the hatians dropped off in a small town with not much opportunity for economic growth. I don't want to say that bad was brought into Mount Olive because it has been both bread and bused into the town and with the mix of the two there is a lot of crime taking place. Unfortunately those people who grew up there and went on to do better things for themselves chose not to return and those who opted to stay are the ones who do nothing to make the town any better and only add to the slow death of a simple town.

    So sad!

    Rsgolo, Mount Olive has had those type crimes before the haitians got here. It hasn't necessarily increased so I don't know where you are getting your information from except you are a typical Mount Olive resident assuming haitians are mean people and they have brought all this crime with them. It has always been there.

    Coroner says they were dead for three days.

    "Why mothers don't teach their boys how to behave is a mystery." Don't be so quick to place blame on the mother. The world has its own education on how to live.

    one child was 1 years old, the other 3.

    That is horrible! However, since the children are under the age of 4, they should not have much of a memory of this.
