NC - Donna Barnhardt, 59, & Darrell Noles, 44, Concord, 13 June 2008
On Jun 13, 2008 a man entered the Sundrop bottling Plant in Concord, NC to rob the place. He entered the office, began shooting, and killed two people. The victims were 59-year-old Donna Barnhardt and 44-year-old Darrel Noles. Darrel Noles was filling out a employment application. Donna Barnhardt was the office manager and had been employed at Sundrop for 18 years.
The killer has never been found. A sketch of a black man who had been seen outside the plant carrying something in a box has not helped in the search for the shooter.
These families deserve to know who killed their loved ones.
There is a $75,000 reward offered for information leading to the person responsible for these murders.

Although, LE says this had nothing to do with the shootings it certainly raises a lot of questions...............

From December 2015:
A social media post shared widely on Facebook has the attention of Concord investigators. It compares a sketch of the suspect, thought to be behind the 2008 murders at the Sun Drop Bottling Plant in Concord, to Darren Manuel, the man accused of the I-85 rest stop shooting.
Concord police say they are investigating tips that Manuel looks similar to the Sun Drop murder suspect...
The Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office did say they don’t see a connection at this time.
