NORTH TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WWAY) -- The official causes of death for the two men killed at North Topsail Beach have been released.

Medical examiners said both Christopher Stewart and Robert Shellhammer died from blood loss caused by stab wounds.

The examiners are calling the 31-year-olds' death homicides, saying the men stabbed each other.

Police have not said much about the case, other than to say they are not looking for any suspects.

Shellhammer and Stewart were found dead on the beach the night of July 25.

WOW, I wish all of you

WOW, I wish all of you could see yourself. You're not even talking about the story. You have given us a good demonstration of our problem.

Law enforcement sources said

Law enforcement sources said that the two men were confidential informants for local authorities. It's also being reported that one of them was about to serve prison. There's more to this story than is being reported and I find it very odd that they only recovered one weapon / knife??

Ban Hammers and toothpicks!

They could be dangerous too, right?

Let's Ban steak knives and plan to savagely pick up our steak to gnaw on at Ruth Chris' with our hands from now on. After all, steak knives are much too dangerous to be in a fine dining establishment, especially where alcohol is being served!

Don't forget, nail guns and power tools should be outlawed. Add farm tools and mechanic's tools.
Keep all computers and brain-dead video games, especially ones with Zombies for the 30 year old liberal "boys" still living in Mama and Daddy's room above the garage. Don't worry son, the government has YOU right where they WANT YOU!
The utter Lunacy of it all, in America, the Home of the FREE.

THIS is where it's going folks.

There is a Czar's rule for every move you make. Danger/ Danger/ Carlos Danger!!!

ALWAYS~
Vote For Freedom First! 2014/2016!

let it go

We get it, you sidetrack every article you post on with the same blather. But in case you haven't noticed nothing has been banned. And what are all these "liberal" boys in garages you speak of? Gamers and geeks are not exactly known for their political positions. I've known a few just that lean just as blindingly and ignorantly to the right as you.

Do us all a favor and next time you see that article about the alligator eating the dog, and your brain starts ticking away at that hilarious comment you're going to make about banning alligators, just stop. Don't do it. We get it, you're anti-gun control. You're not adding anything to that discussion or any discussion at this point.

Oh and stop buying up all the ammunition for your bug-out shelter. All your leaving behind is 95grn steel jacketed crap.

Only In The Dirty South

Now that's what you call free Hillbilly entertainment. Nothing else better to do than stab each other on the beach. Now the world is -2 rednecks...

Q: What does a jerk hate,

Q: What does a jerk hate, more then anything else ?
A: Another Jerk

Ban

Need to ban knives.

oh the horror

A registered sex offender and child abuser killed a drug dealer and visa versa. Big loss there.

Lord, throw them into the furnace of fire

"The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, and will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."
Matthew 13:42

As has been covered in other posts, these men were both criminals who abused drugs. Shellhammer was the worst: a child rapist, and Stewart was just your average druggie/thief.

A hIgh school classmate described Stewart as a "violent sociopath" although his family describe him as being "so kind he would give you the shirt off his back." The Lord will sort them out...

Thank you

Thanks Surf City Tom for your judgement and condemnation just as any good christian would offer. I wish I had a book of 90% fiction that I could quote to prove an invalid point, but that would seem ridiculous. Oh yeah, if your god sends angels to "clean up" so to speak, why are the prisons overflowing? Where is your god now?

Using their best French accent...

"I stab you!"

"No, no...I stab YOU!"

"No, no, no...I stab YOU again and you weel thank me for eet!"

"Oh, oww dat steengs!"

"Oww yeah dat does! I theen we have made a grave meestake!"

"Mee too!"

Fade to black...

Where are the liberals on this?

They should want knives banned, because it's obvious knives are too dangerous for anyone other than qualified law enforcement to possess. Were these assault knives? With high capacity grips? How many more must die before we have common sense knife control? After all, you don't need a knife to get your food anymore, and we have police to protect us so nobody needs a knife, just dial 911. Trayvon would still be alive if GZim had used a knife. Books are banned but knives are legal. Nobody needs more than one knife to gut a deer!

Do you get where this is going, you leftists?

I get where this is going all too well

I, like the vast majority of Americans, am neither an extreme conservative nor an extreme liberal and I can see very clearly where this is going. I doubt you can though. You're using a senseless tragedy as a platform to continue your incessant yammering. I for one am just sick to death of it.

Give it a rest and stop acting like an extremist ideolog for just a moment. Have you become so obsessed with extremist politics that you can't even stop for a second to consider the tragedy of two lives senselessly lost? Is everything just about you and your cause-de-jour?

Right or left wing, our country would be a lot healthier if all political extremists melted into a giant collective pool of their own putrescence that was dumped into hell. At the very least, it'd be a kinder and gentler place for the rest of us to live in. A place where people could agree to disagree and yet still respect one another. A place where (dare I say it?)intelligent compromises were possible. Extremist idealogs like you have no respect for anything other than your own political positions; not even enough respect to not use two tragic senseless deaths as a platform for even more acrimony.

You, and everyone like you, are destroying our country.

Still two lives lost and two families destroyed...

Thank you!! Well said. It was 2 lives lost weather good or bad. It's senseless!! Just pray for the families and the children please!!

Re: i get where this is going

Bingo! Exactly how I would have said it. Well.....probably better.

Very well said.

Very well said.

I get where this is going

I applaud your comment. Those fools have ruined the Republican Party!!!

Half right ......

Extremists have ruined BOTH parties.

Leftist says what?

Screech louder, leftist! Shout down any opposition to your radical agenda! Use violence in your quest to eradicate violence! Doubleplusgood, comrade!

Radical agenda?

Read through Chefnsurf"s post three times to see if there was some hidden agenda I missed. The only one I could find was the concept of people respecting one another.

Seems to me that your little immature rant makes his point far better then he did.

(Also found it amusing that you use all of this leftist, comrade stuff but yet call yourself "Boris".)

Make fun of my name now!

If my name was Trayvon or DeShante' would you make fun of me? Or automatically agree with everything I said? Screech leftist, screech! Beat your chest and howl wildly! Invoke your demi god Obama's name and promise eternal fealty!

ok

So... i usually dont comment on what is so obviously a troll looking to just make people upset... I doubt you have any conviction in what you say and are simply here to use a tragety as a platform to hurl hurtful things at people... thats pretty lame cus' thats my job.

However, ChefnSurf made a fine, well thought out point without name calling or any of the insults or clever prose I usually employ. So I will defend his honor.

Boris... clearly you have never read any of the things I post... I'm mean spirited, spiteful and clearly a very masculin man. And you are not. So... just to be clear; I'd make fun of you and your mom and perhapse your dad (if you could find him) and I'd do it even if your name was Muhammad. Just so we're clear, you sir are an idiot and a possibly not even a human being...

Also... you write like a 12 year old. "Invoke your demi god Obama's name and promise eternal fealty!" Jeez! who talks like that???

T.W. Duke

Right

Never fear Terry, you still remain as king troll.

You're a funny little guy "boris"

Funny how the only reply you could come up with was to comment on me calling you "Boris" and nothing else.

Funny how you just spout off meaningless phrases instead of actual thought.

Funny how much attention you desperately need to focus on you here in these posts because in real life no one pays attention to insignificant little guys like you.

Funny how even if posters say something negative about you it's still gratification for you versus real life where no one cares about you at all.

You're just a bitter little boy whose emotional development has been stunted by your own personal failures so you try to pretend you're better than that. Funny how that has the opposite effect and results in everyone just laughing at you ..... yet once again!

Poor little attention starved "boris" ..... You're just soooo funny!

Keep on posting, funny little "boris" ... and we'll just keep on laughing at you.

Typical leftist ad hominem attacks,

But what else do you expect from LLL's (Liberal Leftist Loons) except pyscho babble and pseudo science? A never ending mantra of leftist social engineering and bigger govt in their demented desire to turn the US into another Greece, Somalia, or Detroit. Their classic technique of personal invective is alive and well on this forum, but see it for what it is, community college Sociology 101 claptrap.

Poor little attention starved "boris"

You're just soooo funny!

Keep on posting, funny little "boris" ... and we'll just keep on laughing at you .... just like people always have.

what a moron

what a moron

Could you be anymore

Could you be anymore ignorant, idiot? Why don't you try reading one of those books you write about. What about showing respect for the families involved? There is a grieving mother for each one of these men. If you have nothing compassionate to say, why don't you shut the hell up? Your opinion is not necessary on this matter in this case. You know nothing about it other that what the media posts about it. One of these pictures is taken from Facebook and the other obviously looks like a mug shot. Unless you are involved directly, you know nothing.

Typical Alinsky tactics

You leftists always revert to name calling when your non sequitur logic is exposed.

You have nothing else except your radical ideology and hatred of the Bill of Rights.

You liberal tools don't want GUNS being mentioned in any context but the ones YOU see fit, when it suits YOUR agenda.

Anyone who exposes your hypocrisy and muddled thought processes is an "idiot" who must be screamed down.

Now call me a moron, you leftist tools!

ok.

Boris is a moron.
