Families of missing, slain women hold fundraiser
Relatives and friends of eight missing or slain Rocky Mount women held another fundraiser Saturday to keep the names and faces of these women in the public eye.Posted — Updated
“We really need to know what is going on with these women,” Jones said Saturday.
A sixth body discovered in February has yet to be identified.
The group said they may not be able to afford to keep the billboards up and, instead, may make a public service announcement.
Lamar Advertising gave the community group a significant discount on the billboards, which went up on July 28. The group paid $1,300 for all three signs.
Two billboards are on U.S. Highway 301, and the other is near Winstead and Sunset avenues.
Anyone with information about the cases is asked to call the Edgecombe County Sheriff's Office at 252-641-7911.
