Suspect arrested after dismembered body found in Goldsboro
GOLDSBORO, N.C. (WITN) - Goldsboro Police say they have arrested a suspect after a dismembered and discarded body that was found in a driveway in Goldsboro this week.
The homeowner says he was coming back from his girlfriend’s house around 9:30 Monday morning when he found the body on Bright Street.
Friday night police arrested 29-year-old Willie Langston of La Grange and charged him with murder in the case.
Police say Langston came to the police department in reference to his vehicle being seized in Mt. Olive, NC earlier in the day.
Langston is being held in the Wayne County Detention Center without bond. His first appearance will be Tuesday.
This investigation is continuing and charges against additional suspects are possible.
While police say they have a tentative ID on the body, before this information is released, a positive identification is needed from the State Medical Examiner’s Office and the North Carolina State Crime Laboratory.
The homeowner where the body was found says detectives searched the home and his car and spent about eight hours taking pictures and collecting evidence.
The Goldsboro Police Department is attempting to identify the vehicle seen in this story in connection with the investigation.
