A break in the case of a Hampstead murder



Take a good look at these two photos.

Detectives say a person in the area saw someone who looks like these two men leaving Moore’s home around the time she died, and came forward to detectives.

One is described as 5 foot 10 inches to six foot, about 220 to 230 pounds with medium brown thinning hair, with a stocky build. The other suspect is between 5 foot 7 inches to 5 foot 8 inches, about 145 pounds with sandy blonde hair and a slender build.

Detectives say this is a big development in this case.

“We still have evidence which is being processed at the lab for finger prints and DNA analysis and the information should be coming in to us rather soon,” said Pender County Sheriff’s Detective Scott Lawson.

Beverly Moore was found dead in the bathtub of her home on Sloop Point Road in Hampstead late September. The medical examiner says Moore was strangled. Sexual assault is also listed as a contributing factor in her death.

Anyone with any information about these two men is asked to call Detective Lawson at 259-1438.
