PITTSBORO, NC (AP) — Two men have been arrested and charged
with murder in the stabbing death of a 15-year-old Fuquay-Varina
The Chatham County Sheriff’s Office says 20-year-old Gabriel
Alejandro Maricio Lopez and 19-year-old Alejanero Prada Sanchez of
Apex were arrested Sunday.
Officials say Patricia Perez was found with multiple stab wounds
early Saturday morning near a Jordan Lake fishing access ramp.
Investigators think Perez’s boyfriend, Lopez, stabbed her after
an argument. They think Sanchez was present.
The girl had been missing since late Thursday morning.
The men were scheduled to appear in court Tuesday. It was not
clear if they have attorneys.
