Statesville Man Dies After Beating By Mob

A 45-year-old Statesville man reportedly beaten by a mob of teenagers last week has died.

Terry Turner died at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center today from injuries he received during last Thursday night's beating. Police are still searching for a motive and relying heavily on what a few witnesses say they saw.

One witness says the group consisted of young teenage boys, maybe 14 or 15 years old.

Police say they have no evidence that the beating was gang related, but they haven't ruled it out.
