— An off-duty Fremont police officer was found dead in his home late Thursday, officials said.

Russell Herring, 28, had been with the Fremont Police Department since late September, Town Administrator Kerry McDuffie said.

His fiancee found him unresponsive in his Goldsboro home, and paramedics pronounced him dead, McDuffie said.

Although the cause of death hasn't been determined, no foul play is suspected in the case, he said.
