Man's Death Now Ruled Homicide

Nash County deputies are now investigating a murder.

A body found Friday has been identified as a 46 year old man from Zebulon.

Ciriaco Ponce's body was found on Bryant Road in Middlesex, just a few feet into the woods.

An autopsy performed today revealed Ponce was murdered, but deputies won't say how he died.

The Nash County Sheriff's Office is offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of those responsible. Anyone with information should call 252-459-4121 or 252-459-1570.
