Murder victim's sister speaks

WILMINGTON -- We're learning more about the man murdered early Friday in New Hanover County. Investigators say no arrests have been made in the murder of 22-year-old Geoffrey Graham. His sister has a message for his killer. "I don't know who did it. I have no clue. But if you are out there I want you to know that it may just have been something you did, but he is a brother, he is a child he has a mother and he has a two year old niece that will never know him, " Kourtnei Martin, Geoffrey Graham's sister said. Early Friday morning, Geoffrey Graham was shot dead in his home in the 2500 block of Bradfield Court. Graham's girlfriend found him bleeding on the living room floor and called 9-1-1. Investigators say Graham died before they reached the scene. Neighbors say the community is normally a safe one. "You never see anything like that around here. Nothing like it," Cal Ray, a neighbor, said. Detectives say the murder may have been drug related but Graham's sister says that's not true. "They've made comments about traffic in and out of his house," Martin says, "This is his first house. Of course he's going to have people over and friends over and parties. I mean, it's normal that's what 22-year-olds do." Martin says her family is devastated. New Hanover County sheriff's office says they have a few leads and the investigation is ongoing.
