Two Women Found Dead Inside Fayetteville Residence

Posted Updated

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. — Fayetteville police are investigating the deaths of two people found inside a house located in a small Fayetteville neighborhood on Saturday night.

At about 11 p.m. on Saturday, police responded to a call at

3046 Brookcrossing Drive

located in the Village at Lakewood subdivision. There, they found two women dead, one of whom was a teenager.

Police said the two are related, but they would not say how they were related. The identities of the two individuals and their causes of death were not immediately available, Fayetteville authorities said.

Neighbors also said that the couple who lived at the house were soldiers, but it is not known if they were deployed.

"I know they had a couple of kids," said neighbor Steve Aaron. "They always waved and spoke whenever I saw them. This is a pretty small, tight-knit community, so we all wave -- and it's scary, it really is."

Someone called police asking for them to check on the people who live in the house. When officers arrived, they went door to door in the neighborhood asking about a missing teenage girl.

"(They) asked us if we had seen somebody," Aaron said. "They described her as a 16- to 18-year-old female. They asked us if we had seen her and we said, 'No.'"

Detectives are, however, asking for the public's assistance in locating a 2004 black four door Mercedes E-320 with North Carolina license plate number


that was discovered to be missing from the home.

"It is missing from the home," said Fayetteville police spokeswoman Jamie Smith. "(Investigators are) unsure if it is the suspect that has it, but they would like to track the vehicle down."
