“We were able to solve this double homicide in less than eight hours,” Edgecombe County Sheriff Cleveland “Clee” Atkinson Jr. said during a press conference Friday morning.

“Detectives found two deceased persons with gunshot wounds on the property,” he said.

The investigation led the detectives to two suspects: Williams, who is currently being held at Edgecomb County Detention Center, and another person of interest who is in custody on unrelated charges, Atkinson said.

Police did not release the identity of the victims, but public records show that Leggett Mayor Gary Skelton and his wife, Jackie Skelton, lived at the address.
