Three Arrested In Death Of 11 Year Old

Three teens were charged in the slaying of a 12-year-old girl whose body was found by her grandfather in her home, authorities said Monday.

All three face charges of first-degree murder and breaking and entering in the shooting death of Emily Elizabeth Haddock, the Moore County Sheriff's Office said.

Van Roger Smith Jr., 16, Sherrod Nicholas Harrison, 19, and Michael Graham Currie, 18, all of Cameron, would be held without bond at the Moore County Detention Center, the sheriff's office said.

The jail and sheriff's department didn't have attorney information for the teens.

Haddock had stayed home from school with strep throat Friday. Her home near Vass was broken into and robbery appears to be the motive, authorities said.

Authorities believe they have recovered the .22-caliber pistol used in the shooting.

    I think Northside High, along with any of the other schools need to check other students in there schools. I have one child at Northside and one at Bath Elementary Schools. The schools are responsible for letting us know what is going on inside the schools with our kids. When we are expected to do the things they ask and expect out of us as parents, if we do not our kids get wrote up or suspended. It is suppose to be their job and duty as teachers and principals to keep us informed. If they can't, how do they expect us to do what they ask of us.
