CASTLE HAYNE, NC (WWAY) — The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office says a middle aged woman was murdered on Hanover Avenue Tuesday evening. Detectives have a man in questioning they believe is linked to the woman’s death.
At this time, Sheriff Edward McMahon says keeping information about the case private is important.
“Right now, we don’t want to give out names because some family members have been informed but of course there are still many that have not been,” said McMahon. “And also, we don’t want any information getting outside of whatever the detectives know and of course what the suspect knows.”
The family of the victim said they did not want to speak about the incident tonight but may after more information is released.
