A ruling from the state medical examiner’s office confirmed that a woman killed in a hotel room in September had been manually strangled two days before her body was found, according to a report issued last week.

Carrie Ann Gordon, 48, of Greenville, was found dead in a room at the InTown Suites, 2111 W. Arlington Blvd., on Sept. 4 by a friend. She died from asphyxia due to manual strangulation, the autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner ruled. The manner of death was ruled a homicide.

The examiner’s report, received by The Daily Reflector on Tuesday, noted that Gordon was found lying on her side in the corner of the room with her pants down to her knees. A contributing condition was listed as recent cocaine use, the report said. Gordon had a history of substance abuse and prostitution, the report said.

A Pitt County grand jury on Sept. 25 indicted Christopher Lamont Mitchell, 30, on a first-degree murder charge in the case. Mitchell, 1510 Shloss Road, Louisburg, was identified by Greenville police as a suspect after detectives reviewed footage from the hotel security cameras. He was arrested Sept. 7.

Detectives believe Mitchell had arranged to meet Gordon at the hotel. A warrant for his arrest indicates the date of offense to be Sept. 2, two days before her Gordon’s body was discovered.

Mitchell has a criminal history, according to online records from the N.C. Department of Public Safety. He was convicted in 2003 of simple assault/affray, in 2005 of larceny, in 2007 of hit and run and operating a vehicle without a license, and in 2009 of felony selling a Schedule II controlled substance. He was sentenced to probation in each of those Pitt County cases.

His probation in the 2007 and 2009 convictions later was revoked and he served just more than four months in prison.

In March 2015, Mitchell was convicted of a 2014 violation of a protective order in Franklin County. He was sentenced to probation.

A judge appointed the Office of Indigent Defense Services to represent Mitchell in the murder case.
