DOCUMENTS: Murdered Kinston Mom May Have Been Lured To Raleigh

Court documents indicate that a man accused of killing a Kinston mother may have lured her to his Raleigh apartment this summer.

Laura Ackerson's body was found back in July in a Texas creek, just days after the woman was reported missing. Ackerson's ex-boyfriend, Grant Hayes, and Hayes' wife have both been charged with her murder.

In new court documents, Raleigh police say Ackerson received an email from Hayes to visit their children at his apartment on July 13th. Police later found the woman's missing car nearby and then on July 24th her dismembered remains were discovered in Texas.

Investigators are seeking information from Hayes' Yahoo email to help their case. Court documents in Lenoir County show the couple were involved in a hotly contested custody dispute for their two children.

    What was this couple thinking when they took this young girls life. I met this young lady and her two adorable children two or three times.They have ruined these children's lives, including the baby by the woman who done the murder.I agree that the children go to Lauren's family.She would of wanted them to be with her family and both grandparents be allowed to see them. I know the parents of these two people are in just about much pain as anyone. and they have asked the same question over again and again. What were they thinking when they did such a terrible crime. and thinking they could get away with it..no one deserves to die the way she did. This story has bothered me since day one. People with are living in dangerous times. We need to pray for these families and especially for these children.GOD HAVE MERCY ON THESE FAMILIES IN TIMES TO COME.

    To all who are in and will be in for rape or murder or both....Tax payers 30k a year to keep them, 5-6k to bury them... The state would save a ton..

      if he is guilty, i hope they lock him up forever and they find a good home for those kids--no kid ever deserves this kind of pain!
