MAXTON — Authorities are investigating a possible homicide and a possible kidnapping, both in the Maxton area, late Monday evening, according to Robeson County Sheriff Ken Sealey.
A body was found on Alma Road early Monday, according to Sealey. The scene was being worked and interviews were being conducted Monday evening.
“That’s all I know,” Sealey said.
The call about the body came about one hour after the Sheriff’s Office received a call at 9:30 a.m. about a possible kidnapping, Sealey said.
Deputies went to the scene on Chav-An Drive and saw evidence in a yard indicating a possible struggle, he said. The house was unlocked and the engine of a vehicle was still running.
“No one was around,” Sealey said.
