A woman from Raeford was one of two people arrested last week in connection with the disappearance and suspected murder of a woman from Hope Mills.
Investigators with the Hope Mills Police Department, Hoke County Sheriff’s Office and the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation announced last week the arrest of Beverly Ann Harris, 36, of Raeford and Miguel Angel Navarro, 33, of Hope Mills.
Harris and Navarro were taken into custody in connection with the disappearance of 40-year-old Rebecca Michelle Fellows, also known as Rebecca Michelle Garcia-James, who was last seen in Hope Mills July 8.
Harris and Navarro were charged with first-degree murder, first-degree rape, first-degree kidnapping and conspiracy. The two suspects were held in the Cumberland County Detention Center.
Authorities made the arrests after finding what they believe to be Fellows’ remains. According to reports, law enforcement officials were still waiting on confirmation of the identity.
The case remains under investigation at this time.
