There is new information tonight on the people suspected in the murder of Brunswick County Realtor Adam Bradshaw. Investigators say Bradshaw was shot and killed April 26. His body was found three days later, off Watts Road near Ocean Isle Beach.

Craig Bryant and Lora Moultrie were arrested Thursday night for the April 26 murder. Bryant was picked up in New Hanover County. Investigators say he is a truck driving student at Cape Fear Community College. Moultrie was found at Bryant’s parent’s home in Supply. She is in the health care industry.

Even though Shannon Bradshaw has lost her husband, she says it’s her son who will suffer the most.

"All the things my husband talked about doing with his son he won’t be able to do, because someone took his life," said Mrs. Bradshaw.

If given the opportunity, Shannon would tell those responsible for her husband’s death exactly what they’ve done.

"I would say, not only did you take someone’s life, you hurt a lot of people that loved Adam Bradshaw, but worst of all you took a father away from his son and my son will grow up without his father," she said.

The arrests are a small relief for Shannon, but not enough to ease the pain.

"I miss him so much. I wish he were alive I wish he could come home now," she said.

Investigators say this was not a random act and that Bryant and Bradshaw knew each other.

The investigation into Bradshaw’s death is still ongoing. Sheriff’s deputies say there may be others involved.

"This person does not deserve to be walking around free. In my opinion they don’t deserve to be alive but that’s up to the courts to decide," said Mrs. Bradshaw.

    We thank God Adam that you will now be able to be laid to rest with somewhat peace as the people responsible for taking your life too soon are in custody. We now will not rest until justice is served for what they did to you. We love and miss you so much. Every minute of every day since you have been gone, I think about you. Your sister, Kim

    My heart goes out to you and all those that knew your husband. May the memory of your husband be a strong guidence for raising your son. Hold on tight to that. He will walk with you in the days and years ahead. I pray that Justice will be served and the accused are punished accordingly.

    My family and I are grateful for all the nice comments that have been made since Adam’s death. I would rather say death than to say murder. The harsh reality is that Adam was murdered and he will not come home to my son and I. Adam’s murder was a vicious, evil, and senseless crime bourn out of greed. This was not a drug related crime. This was a crime that had nothing to do with race, color, or nationality. This was not a maffia-hit. My husband was not a gambler. I am saying all of this to clear up any misconceptions and rumours started by people who have nothing better to do than make false statements about a person they have never known. Adam was a loving husband and father. He loved his career as a real-estate broker. He loved meeting people and talking to everyone in sight. He was a talker. He used his charm, good-looks, and a bit of sweet-talk to steal my heart. I will always love Adam. He will always be in my heart. I will miss seeing his face, the sound of his voice, and the way he smelled(with all the expensive cologne and aftershave). My son will not remember his father. All he will know about his father is what we tell him. Until my son is old enough to handle the truth about his father, I will tell him that God needed daddy in Heaven and he is our guardian angel watching over us. Adam’s love will always surround us. I would like to say thanks to everyone for your kindness through this sad time.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.. For all of you fathers out there.. let this be a wakeup call that none of us are guarenteed tomorrow.. Life can be taken away that quickly form any of us.. If you have children.. Spend that extra time with them.. Tell them you love them… Get of the computer or off the TV for a little while every night and spend some one on one time with them and let them know how much they mean to you.. NEVER take your life and family for granted as this could be your last day as well….
    The only thing life promises us…. is change…

    My thoughts and prayers go out to the Bradshaw family. I am glad that they have arrested someone in connection to his murder. I hope they get the correct punishment. If not, it will come on their judgement day. They took Adam from his young son, which is very sad. And of course, from the rest of his loved ones. Just as one of the other comments stated, why did they do this? Some people have no reguard for human life anymore. I don’t understand what is up with this country. Too many criminals getting just a “slap” on the wrist. So, here’s hoping that justice is served for Adam and for his family……Tammy
