DURHAM, N.C. — The Project Safe Neighborhoods Task Force will canvass the Durham neighborhood of a murder victim on Thursday evening.

Skye Moniqua Lee, 18, of 3628 Keystone Place, Apt. 8-B, was shot and killed on Sunday night at her Oxford Manor apartment. She lived there with her 10-month-old son. The boy was not hurt.

Cory Jiggets, 19, of Fidelity Drive, was charged with murder in Lee’s death. He was being held this week without bond in the Durham County Jail.

Investigators believe the motive was domestic. Jiggets was the father of Lee's baby, and he had been ordered to stay away from her following a December assault, police said.

The task force’s goal is to gather more information about the death and provide residents with information about the crime.
