Two Teens Found Dead After Fishing Trip

Two teenagers are dead after rescuers found their bodies this morning in a tributary of a Halifax County lake.

Deputies identify the two as Trelvin Daniels, 18, and Tashun Tillery, 17, both from Roanoke Rapids. Their bodies were found near the Thelma Bridge, which crosses Deep Creek and the Roanoke Rapids Lake.

The two went fishing for catfish Tuesday morning and were reported missing by their family around midnight. The bodies were found around 7:30 a.m. by the Littleton Fire Department dive team.

Deputies found their vehicle parked near the bridge along with a fishing pole, bucket and car keys under the bridge.

Deputies say the deaths remain under investigation, but there appears to be no foul play.
