Cops: Death of Lee County hunter was no accident

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

SANFORD, N.C. (AP) – Investigators say a hunter who died three days after he was wounded in Lee County was shot at fairly close range.

Lee County sheriff’s Capt. Jeff Johnson told WRAL-TV (http://bit.ly/V7wH9Q ) that investigators think whomever shot 26-year-old Robert Devitto knew they were shooting at a person.

Johnson says the shooting doesn’t appear to be an accident and some evidence shows Devitto may have gotten into a confrontation with another hunter.

Friends found Devitto on Dec. 18 with buckshot wounds to his face and chest after he did not return home from duck hunting alone on state wildlife game lands. He died three days later.

Northhampton County detective cleared of charge

Tuesday, December 25th, 2012

ROANOKE RAPIDS, N.C. (AP) – A misdemeanor assault and battery charge has been dropped against a Northhampton County sheriff’s investigator who was charged while working security at a nightclub.

The lawyer for Det. Lynette Clements told The Daily Herald of Roanoke Rapids (http://bit.ly/12AnsFt ) that the charge against the officer was dropped last week.

Attorney Jamal Summey says Clements returned to her job at the sheriff’s office after she was cleared. She was on leave while the charge was pending.

Summey says Clements was falsely accused of assault by a woman she was trying to kick out of the nightclub.
