    NC - Dr. James Boyd, 47, found strangled in his Salisbury home, 26 June 2008

    A 23 year old girl was just arrested. A reporter on the news said that more arrests are expected next week, and that the 23 year old was an "acquaintance". A police spokesman said that they weren't going to elaborate on the womans relationship with the dentist because he has young children. This intrigues me, I wonder what other arrests are coming, and what exactly happened! (One more thing, although the newspaper article states that they are unsure of how he died, the news is reporting that he was strangled.)

    http://www.charlotte.com/209/story/688611.html

    From the article:

    A co-worker discovered the body after coming to the house to determine why Boyd had not come to work.
    Police said Drye was "an acquaintance" of Boyd's, but they have not said what the motive might have been.
    And police aren't sure exactly how Boyd died. They said there were no gunshot or stab wounds. Boyd's body is undergoing an autopsy today at the medical examiner's office in Charlotte.

    Drug overdose? Young girl, his fling? Maybe, she took some jewelry or money from his wallet when he was passed out.

    A reporter on one of the local Charlotte television stations said that the doctor's feet and hands were bound. He was choked to death. The girl's mother had told the reporter that Dr. Boyd had been calling her daughter for the past six months. They showed the 23-year-old young woman in court asking if she could get out on bail because she wanted to see her three children. I think they told her she couldn't get bail. She had bruises all over her arms. The dentist's wife, who is also a dentist, told police that several items were missing. The police would not say too much about the situation because of the dentist's children.

    What a strange story. It seems like she and the dentist had some kind of sick relationship. His poor family. I'll be waiting to see what other arrests are coming.

    It's weird that the dentist called her stepfather asking that she be picked up because she was drunk. He refused. Then, the boyfriend's mother called to get directions to the dentist's home...Ding, ding, ding...boyfriend may have been there and went to the house instead...

    In any case, the dentist should never have been involved with this 23-year-old drug-addicted girl who had three kids and a boyfriend...

    Unfortunately, some men, no matter how much education, let the lower part of the body make decisions rather than their brain.

    I hate to sound callous, but Dr. Boyd sounds like he exposed not only himself but his entire family to danger. You'd have to be a pinhead not to see the writing on the wall. He comes home early from a family vacation, skips a monthly gathering, yet has time to have drinks with a drug addicted female for whom he is writing painkiller prescriptions. What's up with that?

    Now, they have arrested some others. Just think about it. The family is lucky that they weren't there for a home invasion, which included rape, robbery and murder. I hate to say it, but when you are dealing with young ****s and drug addicts and letting them into your home, you are inviting trouble.

    I know that Dr. Boyd didn't deserve to be murdered. However, did his family deserve to be exposed to the fallout of his secret life?

    Another murder in NC? It seems like it is increasingly getting dangerous there.

    I agree, Trino. Men aren't thinking about the danger they could be putting their families in when they carry on such affairs.
    "WE SEEK FOR THE TRUTH. WE SEEK JUSTICE.
    THE COURTS REQUIRE IT. THE VICTIMS CRY FOR IT
    AND GOD DEMANDS IT!"

    Here's another link. http://www.wcnc.com/news/topstories/....46c219ca.html


    Her father is not doing her any favors by saying that, 'she may have gone there to rob him, but someone else murdered him.' It doesn't matter if she didn't commit the murder. If she were involved in a plot to rob him, she will also be charged with murder. The plot thickens. Maybe, she did call him and ask for a prescription. Perhaps, she went over there to pick it up, and she was already drunk. Maybe, her buddies were outside. When she or he opened the door for her to leave, they forced their way in. I bet that you didn't expect him to be murdered, just robbed. How sad...

    I feel very sorry for his wife and children.

    Maybe the boyfriend found out the dentist raped her and went there later and killed him. I wonder what his story is for that evening??

    I'm tending to lean toward this idea, or something similar.

    I think he probably did rape her & I think when she was found walking, he was still alive & had nothing to do with his murder. I think his death was revenge on her behalf & she didn't know it had happened until she was arrested for it. JMO & I could be wrong.
