NHC authorities still looking for Vann's killer

NHC sheriff’s deputies returned to the former home of Alton Corey Vann as they search for his killer. Deputies searched the residence of Larry Gonzales, Vann's former roommate. Gonzales has a criminal record, including drug charges from 2002. According to the search warrant, Gonzales was the beneficiary of a $20,000 life insurance policy Vann purchased weeks before his murder. Deputies were looking for shot gun shells and a flare gun. It was the second time deputies searched 222 Brookview Road. No charges have been filed. The incident is still under investigation.

Corey Vann employer

Brunswick Cove was and is very laxed on checking criminal backgrounds. If they dont have the staff they will hire anyone to fill the position.I know I worked their.

Corey Vann's life insurance

Why on earth would Mr.Vann have a roommate as his beneficiary? Was this policy provided through his employer or did he actually purchase one? He had family, wouldn't they be the normal choice for a beneficiary? How many 20 year old kids take out life insurance polices on themselves? Why would he need to have this? How much money did he owe Gonzales and for what? This is very interesting and very fishy.

Pair of losers

I wonder how much Vann stole from him. This one sound like a contender for Thug of the Year. What a pair of losers these two are.


What is really scary is that Gonzales is a Registered Nurse and they both worked at that Nursing home. The cops need to talk to Gonzales' ex-girlfriend who was fired from the same nursing home if they really want to know about his activities.
