Still no answers after the general manager of the Applebees in Roanoke Rapids, who used to work at the Applebees in Greenville, was found murdered.

The body of 29 year old Sandy Reidel was found Monday morning.

Police say she was shot to death.

Reidell was in early to open the restaurant.

Another employee found her around 7:40 and called police, who say there did not appear to be any forced entry.

Co-workers say she was last seen alive around 6:30 A.M. by her boyfriend when he brought her a cup of coffee.

    I had the honor of knowing Sandy when we were at ECU together. She was such a wonderful person and tremendous friend. Whomever did this crime should have fullest extent of the law brought upon them. Shame on you for robbing this world of a fantastic young lady.

    I have a question; How do the co-worker know that the boyfriend brought her a cup of coffee if she didn't come in until 7:40? Next, it stated that there were no forced entry, meaning the killer is right there in front of them. My theory is, the boyfriend was the last one with her (possible)in which he SUPPOSELY brought the cup of coffee. The victim knew her killer. She was alone,boyfriend brought her a cup of coffee and no force entry! you do the math!

    Today is a sad day for everybody that had the pleasure of meeting Sandy Riedel. I meet her back in high school 15 years ago and she grew on me from day one(even though she was a marching band geek). She had the warmest smile i have ever seen. My family will miss her dearly. To the strong and look toward God for strength..Justice will be served!!! we love you Sandy and will see you again when I get to heaven with you....God Bless and RIP

    Whoever did this will be found. Let's back our Police Force and help bring the killer or killer's to justice. Once whoever is caught they ought to pay the most severe punishment and that is not sitting in prison. Our hearts and prayers go out to her family. RIP Sandy!

    I work at a restaurant and i dont drink our coffee, especially 4 hours before we open. The servers turn all that on around 10:30 when they come in, so why would you make a whole pot of coffee for yourself, and possibly have a four hour pot of coffee served to guests first thing in the morning. I think the coffee has nothing to do with the murder. Maybe she had a favorite type from starbucks and her bf was bringing it to her to cheer her up since she had a big area inspection due that day, which was why she was there so early in the first place.
