Man wanted for Pender woman’s death kills himself at Virginia police station


ROCKY POINT, NC (WWAY) — The Pender County Sheriff’s office is investigating a homicide at a home in Rocky Point, and investigators say the man wanted for questioning has killed himself.

The Pender County Sheriff’s Office says Wilber Price Jr. was the the suspect in the murder of Myrle Knowles Carr in Rocky Point last night. Detectives say they put out an alert to law enforcement in North Carolina and Virginia early in the investigation. After midnight, investigators got a call from the Hopewell Police Department in Virginia, which said Price took his life in their parking lot.

The investigation started when someone reported a house fire at 4875 Little Kelly Road last night. Emergency responders said they found Carr, who lived there, dead inside.

Pender County Sheriff’s detectives, along with a SBI arson investigator and the Pender County Fire Marshal’s Office are investigating, but they say they are not looking for any other suspects at this time.
