CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Law enforcement officers in North Carolina and South Carolina will investigate the possibility that three women who were killed in the past nine years were victims of a serial killer.
Union County North Carolina Sheriff Eddie Cathey said at a news conference Thursday that officers are investigating all possibilities, including that the deaths aren’t connected.
A dismembered and decapitated body found February 9th in Chesterfield County, South Carolina, was identified as that of 46-year-old Sharon Tucker Stone of Monroe, North Carolina. She had been shot twice in the head.
Cathey says she was last seen around January First and no one reported her missing.
Investigators will look into any connections between that death and the deaths of two other women, whose bodies were found in Union County, North Carolina, in 2004 and in 1997.
