Halifax County Detectives Need Your Help To Solve 8 Recent Murders

There have been eight murders within 90 days in Halifax County which usually averages about eight murders a year. Now officials say they need your help in finding the killers.

Eight people were killed in seven different incidents. Two deadly shootings have been in Enfield, five in Roanoke Rapids, and one in Weldon. The sheriff's office is investigating seven of them. The Roanoke Rapids Police Department is investigating the other. Sheriff Jeff Frazier says it is unusual to have that much crime in such a short amount of time. He says investigators believe the shootings are drug related, but not connected at this point.

"It's been awful, been unreal with what's going on, and the detective division has just been overwhelmed with this. We put everything together, brought in other officers. We have a team working on it," said Frazier.

If you have any information about the shootings please contact Halifax County Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444.

    Here's how to help: Politicians say take away the guns from all those law abiding people who don't commit crimes. According to them, that will fix the problem. Criminals would like that too. Think about this, when has a sign posted on a door ever stopped an armed criminal from coming inside and carrying out his intended robbery? NEVER! Again, the guy who abides by the law says "I see I'm not allowed by law to enter here with a concealed carry handgun. I better leave it in the car or just go someplace else." What does the armed criminal say: "Yea, no armed do-gooders in here, I'm free to rob 'dez suckahs with 'dis gun since no one in here is armed (except me)".

      Well put, "Anonymous". Finally, another "voice of reason" on this site. If only MORE people in NC though like you and I do, criminals would have a much harder time pulling off their shenanigans...

    I recommend capital punishment for drug dealers. Everything over 1 oz of any controlled substance. I guarantee that one will not do it again. In 30 days and not 30 years. They don't seem to mind taking someone elses life, take theirs. And don't cry to me "what if..." I have a brother that is a crackhead.

        Worked in China. Only people I can think of that would complain are the dealers and those that buy from them.
