Wilson sheriff says 2 found dead inside home


WILSON, NC (AP) - The Wilson County Sheriff's Office is investigating what authorities say appears to be a double murder.

The Wilson Times reports investigators found the bodies in a home Monday. The sheriff's office has not disclosed how the victims died.

Sgt. Wanda Samuel identified the dead as 61-year-old John Henry Little, who lived at the home, and 42-year-old Charlene Jones Leake. Samuel says it isn't immediately clear where Leake lived.

Investigators say the two apparently knew each other, but were not in a relationship.

Deputies blocked traffic in the neighborhood and remained on the scene overnight. Samuel says police don't think there is an immediate threat to other people in the neighborhood.
