Authorities find NC woman’s body, seek husband
SEVEN DEVILS, N.C. — Authorities in western North Carolina say they have found the body of a woman who had been missing for more than a month.
Seven Devils Police Chief Edward Davis said Wednesday the body of Deana Elizabeth Schermerhorn was found buried near the house where she was living with her husband. Davis said authorities consider Schermerhorn’s husband, Christopher Warren Meade, a person of interest and are working with authorities in eastern Tennessee and western Virginia.
Authorities had been searching for Schermerhorn for weeks after family members asked police to check on her. They had recently moved to the area after a fire destroyed their home in Caldwell County.
Davis said authorities are awaiting the results of an autopsy.
