Governor Roy Cooper is offering a reward to help solve a two year old murder in eastern Carolina.

It was on March 9th, 2016 that 29-year-old Terriel High of Garysburg, was killed following a home invasion.

Four armed men forced their way into the home on Firman Myrick Street in Gaston and fired multiple shots after searching the home. A mother and her five children living there were not hurt.

Authorities say a few moments later after the men left, more gunshots were heard coming from outside the home. Later that day, deputies found High's body in a wooded area between the home and Clover Lane.

The governor is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to a conviction in this case.

Anyone having information concerning this case should contact the Northampton County Crimestoppers at 252-534-1110, the Northampton County Sheriff's Office at 252-534-2611 or the State Bureau of Investigation at 919-662-4500.
