Shallotte realtor found dead

READ MORE:
A missing man mystery is now a murder case. We first reported on this case over the weekend when Shallotte realtor Adam Bradshaw never returned home from running errands. Last night, Bradshaw's body was found off Watts Road in Brunswick County. The quiet community of Brierwoood in Shallotte is in shock. Bradshaw's friends and family are making a tearful plea for any information leading to his killer. "Adam was wonderful," Nancy Bass, Bradshaw's Mother-in-law, said. "He was a wonderful loving father and son in law. In fact we thought of him as a son." Bass says Adam was very much the family man. His wife Shannon would not go on camera but news of the murder is heart wrenching. "There's a precious little fellow in there that is going to help keep her moving forward in the days that lie ahead," Bass said. The Bradshaws had recently moved to Brierwood. Neighbors say Adam was a nice guy; busy decorating and settling in to his family's new home. "It's just tragedy," neighbor Dick Lavin said. "I mean, my wife and I were talking about it this morning. One day you're married and happy and going at it. The next day you're a survivor." Investigators found Adam Bradshaw's body along a rural stretch of road in Brunswick County. But exactly who murdered him and how he got here still remains a mystery. Investigators are saying very little about this case. The Shallotte Police Department says it still hasn't established a motive, nor have detectives released the cause of death. Bradshaw's car is still missing. Police are looking for his 2007 dark blue Ford Mustang with North Carolina plate C21KING. Investigators are hoping the car will lead to more clues as to who killed the local realtor. Bradshaw leaves behind his wife and 14-month-old son Adam Jr. If anyone has any information regarding this case, they're urged to call the Brunswick County Sheriff's Office at 253-2777.

Adam Bradshaw, an honorable man, father, an huspand was simply trying to make an honest living. His life was cut short due to animals with no respect for human life. This sums his character up: Adam was wonderful," Nancy Bass, Bradshaw's Mother-in-law, said. "He was a wonderful loving father and son in law. In fact we thought of him as a son." Bass, says Adam was very much the family man. His wife Shannon, would not go on camera but news of the murder is heart wrenching. "There's a precious little fellow in there that is going to help keep her moving forward in the days that lie ahead," Bass said. Sympathy and prayers to his family and loved ones.

Coastal Jadey!

That is so wrong to assume this was a drug deal; a lot of things could have happened! I have known Adam and worked with Adam for over 2 years at Century 21 Home Town Realty. He NEVER took or did drugs! There are plenty of scenarios that could have taken place; I guess though becuase his car was found out in Longwood it was a drug deal.....Wow I sure hope you are never on a jury for anyone!

Adam

Adam, you will be sorely missed here in Harnett County. I have not seen you in years..well since shortly after graduation..but we had some good times. To Adams wife, His Sister Kim, Brother Ted, and cousin Michelle...I'm here for you guys...you know my number. Denise

Yes we surely will miss you

Yes we surely will miss you in Harnett county boy you used to set all of our crazy butts straight and you kept us in a reality check. our condolences go out to your family!! You will always be in our hearts and minds!!!

Adam Bradshaw

I worked with Adam for about 2 years at Century 21 as a Realtor myself. We both hit it off really well when he came to work with us I guess becuase we were in the same age group. He is/was a wonderful man and always knew how to crack a joke and make everyone smile. He will be greatly missed. Shannon, I am so sorry for your loss I hope your memories bring you great comfort in the coming days ahead!

Bring back Sheriff Hewett

If Ron Hewett was still Sheriff, they would have found that car, arrested the boys who did it and had them ready for the electric chair by now.

You're an idiot! Who said it

You're an idiot! Who said it was BOYS who did it anyways? That joke hewitt would of sat on his hands!

LMAO

WHATEVER!!!

Bring back Sheriff Hewett

Excuse me? Bring back Sheriff who? Now you know as well as everybody else the man was a drunk! A big old stinky drunk tore up from the floor up! He couldn't find his own feet if he wasn't walking on them. How do you expect him to find a criminal? Wake up! Didn't you watch the news? And as for the family who lost their love one, I am truely sorry for you lost and I hope who every did this is caught soon.

Not About Ronald

Does the devastation that this family is dealing with have to be an opportunity for someone to give Ronald Hewett a sound bite? My God - let these people grieve and pray for them in the coming days. This isn't about Ronald and to even bring him into this is such a shame. Let's focus on what's really important and believe it or not - it's not always about poor Ronald.

To the family we are so

To the family we are so sorry for your loss, may God be with you at this time.
