He was stationed at Camp Lejeune from May, 1978 to July, 1978. Then he was stationed at Cherry Point until March 1980...and again from April 1981 to December 1983.

Sowell is being held without bond on five counts of aggravated murder.

    May God Bless America again - so sorry anyone is dead . . . black, white, hispanic, etc. Jesus loved all these people regardless of whether they were wealthy or poor, drove SUVs or bikes - Does it really matter my color? I am white and unashamed. I am a Christian and unashamed too.

    Actually most serial killers are white males - and yes, I am white.

    To "Charity" HE KILLED PEOPLE! would you be so accomidating if it were YOUR FAMILY MEMBER? These so called people DON"T WANT HELP FROM A PROGRAM! There are plenty of programs out there now that offer help. We don't need anymore. These murderers want to be left alone so they can continue their lifestyle. They want to blend into the community so they can do their dirty deeds. AND, it doesn't matter what color he is, evil has no color. This is happening all around us but the law officials CAN'T SEE THAT. What are they doing? They always arrive too late and then try to defend their inability. Please don't forget the poor women in Rocky Mount. These women seem to be forgotten and the police just hope it will stop so they won't have to do anything. These women deserve JUSTICE! They were not your "fine, upstanding, preppy, big SUV driving citizens. They were black women that had loving families that cared for them. This has to stop! Oh yes,I am white.

    Okay, first off. I agree that we shouldn't judge. That is the Lord's job and ONLY His. But.....the line has to be drawn somewhere. This may be a killer we are talking about here. Just because he served our country gives him no right and ours to overlook this. ELEVEN people are dead. And he is a sex offender! Come on people and use your heads. He needs to be OFF the streets! This is judging, it's common sense!

    TO:Sad, you're the only one that makes since here. First a sex offender, now a murderer. He needs to be put behind bars for life up to the day he die.

    To Charity begins at home..... WTH?? Did you miss the part about the dead bodies? Your telling me because he's a marine, we're supposed to overlook the fact that he has murdered all these people??? Next time think before you speak.

    Rocky Mt. was the first thing that came to mind when I read he lived in NC. Sure hope that is being checked out.

    He served during peacetime, so I see no reason that they are stressing the fact that he was a Marine. He didnt go through some of the situations that the majority of our service members go through now a days. Most of the military members committing crimes like this have not even seen combat.

    Authorities in Eastern NC need to start looking around for dead bodies where that crazy monster lived. His past proves this is his extrcurricular activity.
