Rocky Mount police are asking for information regarding the city’s fifth homicide of the year. This time, the victim is a woman.

The Rocky Mount Communications Center received a phone call at 10:57 a.m. on Wednesday from Nash County Communications asking for help in assisting EMS with an unresponsive female, according to a statement from Rocky Mount police.

Police officers responded to 1 Drew Hills Court and found an unresponsive black woman inside the residence. The victim had sustained injuries from an aggravated assault and was pronounced dead at the scene, the news release said.

The victim’s identity is being withheld pending notification of the family. Sgt. Brad Summerlin of the Rocky Mount Police Department said her name and age will likely not be released until today.

Rocky Mount’s Crime Scene Unit responded to the scene, and the case is currently under investigation by the Rocky Mount Homicide Unit.

This is the fifth victim whose death the Homicide Unit has been called on to investigate this year.

Kestler Rayo Bridgers, 31, and Torrey Tinell Hill, 39, were gunned down Jan.5 on Carroll Avenue and that case remains under investigation.

Mikell Lamar Sheridan, 20, was shot and killed Jan. 6 on Union Street. Three suspects have been arrested and charged in connection with that case.

The fourth homicide of 2019 took place on Jan. 21 on West Thomas Street. In that incident, police responded to a shooting with injury call and arrived to find a white Ford Focus that had struck a utility pole. A short distance from the vehicle, police discovered the body of 29-year-old Tobious Devone Cox.

Anyone with information about any of these cases should contact the Rocky Mount Police Department at 252-972-1411, Twin County Crime Stoppers at 252-977-1111 or Text-A-Tip (Text RMPOL) and the message to CRIMES (274637). All text are kept anonymous.
