FIRST ON 3: Hillcrest murder victim was Spider-Man store robber
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Sources in the Wilmington Police Department say they believe a man killed in the Hillcrest community in October was the man who robbed several area stores disguised as Spider-Man.
A source tells WWAY that investigators believe Anthony LaFrance Devone was the man who wore a black Spider-Man mask when he robbed at least four convenience stores earlier this fall. Devone’s body was found between two buildings on South Liberty Court the night of October 20.
Police charged Willis Davis Pridgen, 44, with the murder two days later.
