No Weapon Discovered In Murder Case

Lawmen are continuing to build their case against a Hertford County teen accused of murdering a 30-year-old man.

Frederick Williams, 17, of Ahoskie, is behind bars for the murder of Jason Harrell, of Cofield. An autopsy shows Harrell was shot several times, according to the Roanoke-Chowan News Herald.

The paper says divers searching for the murder weapon in Ahoskie Creek have come up empty so far.

Hertford County Sheriff Juan Vaughn told the paper they believe Williams acted alone.

    I don't know what in the world is wrong with that guy. Jason was a person that everyone loved. He was a fun person to be around and he will truly be missed by everyone. May the family be blessed during this rough time!

        Wow will you please let the criminal justice system take care of this. No need to get up here and start snitching about something you don't know anything about. If that is the case then you need to be a suspect too for knowing more than the police know. Maybe you helped and trying to blame it on somebody else. Bumboclot!!!!!
