A man allegedly killed a woman and left the crime scene that a local sheriff described as “something I would wish on no one.”
On Aug. 25, the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office in North Carolina said it arrested Glenn Locklear III, 24, in connection to the death of Wendy Jones, 20.
Police started to investigate on Aug. 23 after Jones was reported missing, according to the sheriff’s office. She had not been seen since Aug. 12.
On Aug. 24, a body was found in the woods and based on tattoos and other marking it is believed to be Jones. A medical examiner will confirm the identity, according to the sheriff’s office.
“What we witnessed at this crime scene is something I would wish on no one. Having to tell the family they could not see their own daughter is really hard,” said Sheriff Burnis Wilkins.
Locklear was arrested and charged with first-degree murder, concealment of death by disturbing/dismembering human remains and altering/destroying evidence.
“These horrific crimes shouldn’t be happening at all but to have three women brutally killed in our county at the hands of a man within the last 10 months is appalling," Wilkins said. "These families need prayer but we also need action from the courts to remove these men from the general public. No woman should tolerate a man physically abusing them.”
