NC - BE-LO Mass Murder, Windsor, 6 June 1993
I know this isn't a high profile case, but I wanted to try and give this cold case some exposure. The way in which the perp stacked these bodies to kill them, speaks to how horrendous this person is. He stacked the bodies in order to "save bullets". But apparently that didn't work, so he decided to stab them. But auspiciously, there were 2 survivors, but one later died after battling cancer. 20 years later, this cases remains unsolved.
On Sunday, June 6, 1993, at approximately 6:15 p.m., a black male who was already in the Be-Lo Grocery Store in Windsor used grey duct tape to bind six victims. He stacked the victims into three piles. He then shot into the piles, killing three of the victims. The fourth victim was shot, the fifth victim was stabbed; both were left for dead. The sixth victim was not hurt.
Description of suspect: Black male Medium complexion 30-35 years of age Slender solid build Military style haircut Light brown slanted eyes Narrow nose bridge (possible sports injury)

ugh. sounds like he was not just trying to conserve bullets but almost as if he only had so many and there were more victims than he anticipated and tried to be creative on the fly. Obviously leaving no witnesses was of big import to him.

I can only assume the people who survived did not recognize him so why the apparent desire to make sure he killed them all. And when he was not able to why not continue to find a way to finish those victims.
Interesting. Going to try to go find more info on this one. Thanks for the thread, los

Now retired Police Chief Rodney Hoggard, remembers it like it was yesterday.
"What happened in there?" asked 9 On Your Side's Kristen Hunter.
"The manager and the cashier at the Be-Lo had closed the store. A cleaning crew had come in to clean up the store, do the floors and that type of stuff and during that time somebody came in the store, evidently had hid in the store," said Hoggard.
The man told employees he was a police officer who had been fired, but investigators now believe that to be untrue. He took the 6 people to the back of the store, bound them with duct tape and forced them to the floor in piles.
"Three by three, two on top of each other. And his intentions were to shoot through the stack. Save ammo," said Hoggard.
Detectives believe the man fired his gun until he ran out of ammunition. That's when they say he went to the kitchen and grabbed a butcher knife, slashing one of the victim's throats and stabbing him so hard the knife broke off in his back.
Six employees was a high number to be inside the store at once. That night, they had closed early and extra help was called in to help strip the flooring.
After all these years, a 30 thousand dollar reward is still being offered for information leading to an arrest in the Be-lo murders. The number for the Windsor Police Department is 252-794-3111.
