    Unacceptable. I understand not releasing names of deceased until family can be notified. I understand not speculating on cause of death. But not giving the location is unacceptable. We should know whats going on in our neighbor hood.

    The story says they were found by a resident in a Manteo home. Then why is Dare Sheriff investigating the case. Seems like Manteo police should handle it. What’s going on?

    Sheriff’s dept has better resources than manteo pd does! Maybe that’s why. Does manteo pd even have detectives?
