    I know Wanchese is in Dare County on Roanoke Island. I was being sarcastic. Still hope the lady is ok though, was not being sarcastic about that.

    OMG...wow, I am not suprised, but I am sad to hear what happened, her and her family definitely have a reputation in Dare County. They need to keep Lance locked up, and Kathy, once she gets out, maybe try to straighten up. I am grateful I did. She and her family are in my prayers.

    I know Kathy and Lance I lived in wanchese for many years and it is truly sad what has happened here. I feel for Kathy's children. As far as anyone knows right now that Kathy is hanging on. Lance is in raleigh prison right now and is under a 1 million dollar bond. I wish people would update articles more and let people know what has happened.

    Maybe James is just a kid and doesn't know his geography yet...or if an adult, well I guess some people just don't know where some places are in their own county. Maybe he lives in Buxton and doesn't get up over toward Northern Dare County?

    James, how can you as a Dare County resident be asking that question when you should know that Wanchese is a town in your own county? Come on dude. Does the word "Wanchese" now sound familiar? Other than that, the man should have not done such a thing to his wife. It still is not as bad as what happened back in Martin County where there was a murder that should have never ever happened. Hope Kathy is alright.

    Looks like a typical, upstanding North Carolina citizen.

    Nothing wrong with the headline if you know a little bit about the state which you live in. What if the stabbing had taken place in Oriental? Would you be saying WITN was racist? GET A LIFE.
