NC - Jakir Sheikh, 58, manager, found strangled at Raeford Inn, 19 Jan 2015The Hoke County Sheriff's Office has issued warrants charging a couple with the murder of a man found strangled inside a Raeford motel room on Monday. Jakir Mohammad Sheikh, 58, was found dead inside a motel room at Raeford Inn by his brother, who owns the motel. The Hoke County Sheriff Office said Sheikh, who was the manager of the Raeford Inn, was reported missing on Friday.
Deputies said Sheikh was found strangled inside a room rented to 21-year-old Tyler Mark Pierce and his girlfriend Samantha Shilts, 21, who were not in the room when officers arrived to investigate.
