Reward Now $16,000 In Wayne County Double Homicide

The reward in an unsolved double homicide is more than doubled thanks to Governor Pat McCrory.

The governor announced Friday his office is now offering up to a $10,000 reward in the murders of Tyrone Beamon, Jr. and Shaundrea Juanette.

Last November 5th their bodies were found in a bathtub inside a home on Waller Road outside of Mount Olive.

Two young children, a one-year-old and a three-year-old, were found unharmed in the home. Authorities believe the children were in the home with the dead bodies for a day or two.

This reward is in addition to a $6,000 reward already being offered by the sheriff's office and the family.

Anyone having information on the double murder should contact the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at (919) 731-1481 or the State Bureau of Investigation at (919) 662-4500.
