A reader emailed me the following:

“During the Saturday am WSB News, there was mention of a murder in Winston on Patrick Place where a person was found dead of a gunshot wound…can’t find it on wsb, have seen anything else on it, either…”

I’ve searched the internet and found nothing, either, except the thread on Topix.  The DCSO website hasn’t updated their news page yet today, so maybe they will be adding something about it today or tomorrow.

Someone on Topix posted a link to an article on WSB Radio an hour ago:

(WSB Radio)  New developments tonight in a Douglas Co. murder investigation.

Sheriff’s deputies found a person shot dead at a home on Patrick Place in Winston on saturday afternoon.  They’re not saying who the victim is, what happened or how the shooting developed.

Neighbors say the house was usually vacant, but suspicious.

“When you see somebody show up at 11, 12, 1 o’clock in the morning and turn the floodlights on, you think something suspicious,” says Michael Estes, who lives next door.  “And, in the morning time, they’re gone.”

An autopsy is set to determine the identity of the victim and exact cause of death.

Area residents are unnerved by the killing.

“I am scared to death,” Michelle Estes says.  “I have not been able to sleep.  I’ve been up all night.  I am scared.”
