Write up in newsobserver re; pregnancy, statistics of deaths. (Mentions Michelle and others)

[quote]The news that Michelle Fisher Young had been beaten to death at her home in a quiet subdivision south of Raleigh was shocking enough. That Young was four months pregnant only made it worse.But it's not all that unusual.

Homicide is the leading cause of death among pregnant women, according to some studies. Others have found it is a leading cause of death among pregnant women and mothers of newborns. Young, who expected to deliver a boy in the spring, was just the latest in a long list of women whose lives were cut short as they tried to bring a new life into the world. [quote]

While the discovery of the tooth was coming to light, another source tells eyewitness news that wake investigators looking into young's death are in the mountain town of Brevard today.

The Transylvania county sheriff says his office has been contacted to assist with fingerprinting relatives and friends of Jason Young, who sources say is back home in the Brevard area with his two year-old daughter.

Wake's sheriff confirms his investigators are in the mountains. "We have a lot of leads, over 65 that we're following up on," says Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison. "We go wherever that takes us. And that's probably what they're doing today," he continued.

"But a piece of evidence that was missed were tests to determine whether Young was sexually assaulted.

According to the autopsy report, the North Carolina medical examiner never performed any, which means investigators cannot rule out sexual assault as a motive for the crime.

North Carolina medical examiner John Butts said such tests are only performed when there is obvious evidence at the scene or on the victim's body of sexual assault or when law enforcement officers request it.
"Collection of such (rape) kits is not routine for female homicide victims, unless they fall into these categories," Butts said.

Still no arrest in Michelle Young murder

05/03/2007 08:50 PM

By: Ann Forte

RALEIGH -- Work men were installing new carpet inside 5108 Birchleaf Dr., Thursday afternoon. The workers say no one is living there right now, six months after Michelle Young was found beaten to death inside.
Her killer has not been caught.

"We'd like to solve it, of course, quickly, but it's such a complex case, we have to make sure we get our information correct," explained Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison.

A pregnant 29-year-old Young was found dead inside her home on Nov. 3, 2006. Her two-year-old daughter, Cassidy, was also found in the home, unhurt. Young’s family pleaded for help in solving the case.

In November, Linda Fisher, Michelle’s mother, told reporters, "I'm asking for anyone who has seen or heard anything -- as trivial as you might think it is, anything -- to please come forward and help find the person who murdered my daughter."

Attention has centered on Young’s husband, Jason Young. Previously released court documents show the couple was having financial problems before Michelle died, and Jason Young stood to benefit financially from his wife's death.

snipped...

A similar case in Durham is still unsolved. It has been two years, and police still do not know who murdered a pregnant mother in Durham. Janet Abaroa was found dead in her home in April 2005.

The grief won't go away

Ruth Sheehan, Staff Writer

I had barely identified myself on the phone when Linda Fisher began to sob.
She knew why I was calling before I said another word.

Fisher of Sayville, N.Y., is the mother of Michelle Young, who -- like Nancy Cooper of Cary -- was a young vivacious mother, killed in her prime.

Young, 29, was found beaten to death in her home in Raleigh's Enchanted Oaks subdivision on Nov. 3, 2006. She was five months pregnant.

I know I'm not the only person who has wondered about Young's family as we've watched Cooper's loved ones mourn in recent weeks.

As it turns out, Fisher was in Raleigh, visiting her younger daughter Meredith in mid-July when Cooper's body was discovered at a construction site near her Lochmere home.

...........................snip................... ......

Fisher met with Wake County investigators during her July visit.

She repeated what the investigators say: "They're working on the case, and they're making progress."

Beyond that, she is sworn to silence. "There's so much I can't talk about, but there's so much I want to say."

Michelle Young probe focuses on husband

............snip.....................
Investigators found two footprints in blood on a pillow in the Youngs' bedroom. One of the impressions was similar to the design of a pair of Hush Puppies that Young owned, according to the affidavit. The other footprint was from an athletic shoe. The affidavit noted that Young bought Hush Puppies and two pairs of athletic shoes in July 2005 from a store in Cary.

They also found a blood splatter that might have been a print on the bedroom wall near Young's body. The State Bureau of Investigation found that DNA from the spot matched Jason Young's DNA, according to the affidavit.

The night before Michelle Young's body was found, Jason Young checked into a Hampton Inn in Hillsville, Va., about 170 miles from Raleigh, according to the affidavit. A hotel security camera captured an image of Young, wearing a dark pullover, heading to a a hotel exit about midnight.

The exit door had a rock in the door jam that kept the door from locking automatically and allowed people to enter without using a keycard, according to the affidavit. Young's keycard was not used to re-enter the hotel.

Investigators suspect that Young's vehicle was at his home in Enchanted Oaks between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. the next morning, when a newspaper delivery person saw a light-colored SUV at the Young residence. The SUV, which was similar to Jason Young's white Ford Explorer, was "parked in such a manner that it appeared to have been unloading or loading something," the investigator said in the affidavit.

In the affidavit, the investigator also noted that Young was not wearing the dark pullover when he arrived at his mother's home in Brevard in the late afternoon of Nov. 3. Instead, he was wearing a white shirt and tie.

A mother waits, prays for justice
Michelle Young was killed in her home


RALEIGH - After nearly two years, Linda Fisher still prays daily that the person responsible for the death of her daughter, Michelle Young, will be brought to justice.
Young, 29, was found dead in the home she shared with her husband, Jason Young, in the Enchanted Oaks subdivision south of Raleigh. As with the Nancy Cooper case this summer, investigators have focused on Young's husband but have not identified him as a suspect.

The pregnant young mother was lying on her bed in a pool of blood on Nov. 3, 2006. Bloody footprints from their 2-year-old daughter, Cassidy, who was unharmed, trailed across the carpet.

A search warrant unsealed last month indicated Wake County deputies found DNA and bloody footprints that linked Jason Young to the crime scene. Sheriff's deputies have been investigating whether he checked into a Virginia hotel and then drove back to Raleigh that night.

Amanda, I read your book "Deadly Dose" and thought it was well written. Do you plan to write a book about the Michelle Young case after the trial? – Carol Padgett, Creedmoor

I am currently in the process of deciding the topic of my next book. There are clearly a lot of interesting local cases to choose from. I keep good notes on all of the cases I cover. But I did learn from my "Deadly Dose" publisher that crimes must be solved before you can write a book about them. This is for two reasons – one, legal liability, two, the reader needs some satisfaction, some closure to the story.

Michelle Young's slaying remains unsolved

CARY - Those who loved Michelle Young gathered Sunday around the two granite hearts that mark her grave -- a large one inscribed for the young mother who died two years ago today, a small one tucked inside and marked "Rylan" for the son she was carrying.

.....................snip.......................

The somber anniversary comes just days after the arrest of Brad Cooper on murder charges in the slaying of his wife, Nancy -- the case of another suburban couple with young children and a seemingly bright future shattered by sudden violence.

Cooper was found dead in an empty cul-de-sac near her Cary home July 14. Attention quickly focused on Brad Cooper, who was arrested Oct. 27.

Carol Nelson, a friend and co-worker of Young's at Progress Energy, said she was heartened by the arrest in the Cooper case. Nelson has developed a keen sense in the past two years of how an unsolved murder can weigh on a victim's loved ones.

But she is frustrated that while Brad Cooper faces murder charges, Michelle Young's case remains unsolved.

...............snip...........................

Sheriff Donnie Harrison said there are no new suspects in the case, but he hopes to make an arrest "in the near future."

"We talk about this case nearly every day," Harrison said in an interview last week. "It's something that's still fresh."

Raleigh, N.C. — Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison says he is not surprised by a wrongful death lawsuit filed against the husband of a slain Wake County mother found dead inside her home two years ago this week.

"It's something I felt was coming," Harrison said Wednesday. "And my reaction is I think it was due and the right thing to do."

Michelle Young's mother, Linda Fisher, filed the lawsuit last Wednesday against her son-in-law, Jason Young, saying "he brutally murdered" her daughter.

According to an affidavit accompanying the warrant, investigators also searched Jason Young's phone records from Oct. 4, 2006 to Nov. 3, 2006. On the day Michelle Young died, he made 28 calls – more than any other day during the time period of the records.

* Jason Young and the woman with whom he was having an affair exchanged about 980 phone calls and text messages between Oct. 4 and Nov. 3, 2006.

* Young's computer was used to search the Internet on topics including "anatomy of a knockout," "head trauma knockout," and "divorce" before his wife was found dead.

* In e-mail, Young wrote to his sister about the investigation and his attorney: "His ONLY concern is for me and that hopefully there will NEVER be an arrest."

Investigator believes Jason Young killed his wife

Raleigh, N.C. — A senior resident Superior Court judge on Friday afternoon found that Jason Young "willfully and unlawfully killed" his wife, Michelle Young more than two years ago. The order comes as part of a civil wrongful death suit filed by Michelle Young's mother, Linda Fisher, against Jason Young.

Among the supporting documents in Judge Donald Stephens' judgment was an affidavit from Wake County sheriff’s investigator Richard Spivey, a member of the team investigating the criminal case of the 29-year-old mother’s death.

RALEIGH -- When prosecutors and defense attorneys begin polling potential jurors today for the Jason Young murder trial, there might be a sense of eerie similarities to a case that wrapped up three weeks ago in the same Wake County courthouse.

Jason Young, 37, is accused of murdering his wife, Michelle Young. She was 29 and several months pregnant when her sister found her body Nov. 3, 2006, in the master bedroom of the family's suburban Wake County home. Cassidy, the couple's then 2-year-old daughter, was physically unharmed, but had tracked bloody footprints throughout the house.

Judge postpones Jason Young's second murder trial

Judge Donald Stephens issued an order Wednesday afternoon, moving Young’s second murder trial from October to at least January after the court reporter assigned to the case was unable to meet a deadline to produce a transcript from the first trial to prosecutors and Young's attorneys.

Stephens said the delay has to do with the workload demands of the Wake County court system, the vacancy of a court reporter position and a jury selection process that is expected to take longer than normal because of media coverage of the first trial.

Credibility of witness questioned in Young case

Young's defense has tried hard to discredit Calhoun. At the first trial, it pointed out she identified him from a photo showed to her by investigators - not a proper lineup.

This time around, questions have been raised about Calhoun's medical history. In a hearing Wednesday outside the presence of the jury, she testified she was hit by a delivery truck when she was 6-years-old that left her with brain trauma. She said she has drawn disability payments ever since.

Judge Stephens ruled the information was relevant and lawyers could bring it up before the jury.

Testimony brings new revelations in Young murder trial

Sargent, who didn't testify in the first trial, said Friday that Michelle Young was stressed and sought individual help on how to deal with the problems in her marriage.

"She was very anxious over the fact that she was pregnant and their marriage was in some real trouble," Sargent said.

Arguing between the couple had gotten so bad, Sargent said, that the two were able to communicate effectively only over email.

Jason Young live blog: Night clerk remembers unusual events at Hampton Inn

3:43 p.m.: Night clerk Keith Hicks from the Hampton Inn in Hillsville, Va., is on the stand. Hicks came to work around 11 p.m. that night and worked the overnight shift.

He testified that he saw a door on the west side propped open by a rock and kicked the rock out. He also said he noticed that the surveillance camera that watched that exit had been disconnected.

Within half an hour of it being re-connected, the camera had been pushed to where it was facing the ceiling tiles.

"It was very unusual," he told prosecutor Howard Cummings.

Later, when concluding his testimony, he said, when he saw the camera unplugged, "It gave me an uneasy feeling."

Under cross examination from defense attorney Bryan Collins, Hicks said there were 86 guest rooms in the inn that day, and that Jason Young didn't stand out to him.

"He didn't stand out from the other hundreds of guests that come through," he said.

Jurors on Tuesday and Wednesday heard the entire 3.5 hours of Jason Young's June 22, 2011, account of his marital issues, life with his wife and where he was when prosecutors say he beat her to death and left their 2-year-old daughter in the home alone

Jason Young found guilty of first-degree murder

RALEIGH, N.C. — After nearly 10 hours of deliberation, a Wake County jury on Monday found Jason Young guilty of first-degree murder in the 2006 death of his wife, Michelle Young.

A first-degree murder conviction means an automatic sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Jason Young, who did not address the court, showed no emotion and sat expressionless as Superior Court Judge Stephens read the verdict.

Michelle Young's mother and sister, meanwhile, cried. They declined to comment on the verdict, saying only that they were "happy that justice has been served."

Jason Young's family also had no comment.

Stephens offered strong words during sentencing.

"In reviewing the evidence, it appeared to me that if, on Nov. 2, 2006, Michelle Young had called the police and had reported that her husband had beaten her – and if police had responded and found her with missing teeth and a broken noses and black eyes – no one that this couple knew, including their closest friends, would have been surprised," Stephens said.

He said the case was similar to just about every other case of domestic violence he has ever seen - saying the evidence clearly showed the relationship between Young and his wife escalated from unpleasant to volatile.

In an interview this week, Raksnis discussed both the conduct issue and the process of reaching a verdict.

She quickly dismissed allegations that jurors had discussed the case with others before the verdict was reached. "I don't think it will be substantiated," Raksnis said.

But she was confident in the verdict reached by the panel of seven other women and four men. Raksnis said she was not certain of the appropriate verdict when the group began their deliberations. But over time, a clear picture emerged from a puzzle, despite the missing pieces, she said.
