— A search warrant returned Thursday to Wake County District Court shows investigators sought information from the cell phone of a Domino's Pizza store manager who was killed last month.

The Jan. 14 warrant seeks voicemails, passwords, text messages, e-mails and telephone numbers stored on the phone of Kenneth "Kenny" Ring.

Ring, 24, died Jan. 11, two days after a Domino's delivery driver found him on the floor of the store at 2001 Widewaters Parkway in Knightdale.

Investigators said Ring appeared to be the victim of an apparent robbery, and they have not named any suspects in the case.

In a Jan. 22 search warrant returned earlier this week, however, investigators said they wanted to explore discrepancies in statements from the delivery driver's brother, Travis Sherman, and a woman, Anna Painter, whom he has dated.

Knightdale police continue to seek information about the case and urge anyone with information, regardless of how significant it might seem, to contact them at 919-217-2261.

Investigators also want to speak to anyone who was in the area of the Widewaters Commons Shopping Center in Knightdale from midnight to 12:39 a.m. Jan. 9.

Crime Stoppers is offering a $17,000 reward for information that leads to a conviction.
