WPD won't release info in Pine Valley murder


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Carol Ann Johnson was found dead in her Pine Valley Drive home lask week by her fiance more than a week ago.

Today, we don't know any more about the murder than we did the day it happened.

In a police report we got today, the crime is listed as "miscellaneous" and no other details are available.

Johnson's fiance, Christopher Munn, who called 9-1-1 the night of the death, is listed on the report as the reporting person.

Munn told police he worked at the Target store on Market. When we talked with managers there today, we were told he hadn't been to work since the incident.

Wilmington police still won't release the cause of death or any other details from the autopsy because they say it could hinder the investigation.

A spokeswoman for the department says it is not uncommon for this information to be withheld.
