Description

In 1999, a dedicated rookie police officer on the luxury island of Bald Head, North Carolina, is shot in the back of the head while on duty. Emergency officials destroyed the crime scene and all evidence and the DA quickly closed the case, ruling it a suicide. Her family sued in civil court to get the ruling changed to homicide and the case is still open to this day.

Wow! What a frustrating story! So horrible how the scene was handled. I really hope somehow, some way, justice is served. Thanks for covering this.
