NC Man Who Jumped From Bridge Suspected In Death

Police think a man who jumped to his death from a Wilmington overpass had killed his girlfriend at her apartment nearby.

New Hanover County sheriff's spokesman Deputy J.L. Augst says investigators think the man killed the woman Saturday, drove to the overpass and jumped.

In a news release Sunday, Augst said 42-year-old Kimberly Ann Williams Hill was killed in her apartment and 37-year-old Joseph Lane Rouse died after jumping from the overpass.

Augst said the two had been dating, but he didn't know whether they were living together.

    Too bad he didn't jump first, BEFORE he visited his girlfriend...

    I believe Rouse was 37 not 27. At least that is what all news sources in Wilmington are reporting.
