Search warrant sealed by judge on Pender child murder, rape case

PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — In our efforts to find out more about the death of a Pender county child who was raped and murdered, we reached a dead end when it came to requesting the search warrant.

5-year-old Paitin Fields died on November 15. We requested the search warrant early Thursday morning, by noon it was sealed.

According to the Pender County Sheriff’s Office, a judge sealed the the search warrant at the request of a detective. They believe it would be detrimental if the information in the search warrant was released.

Currently, there is no other update to the investigation.

The family of Paitin Woods spoke only to WWAY Wednesday about the disturbing death case.
