NC - Melissa Wise, 38, found murdered at Rocky Mount motel, 13 Jan 2010
Melissa Jo Wise, 38, went missing from her job in a massage parlor in Franklinton, NC. She was found murdered in a hotel room in Rocky Mount, NC. Police have arrested Ronald Ricks, Jr. and charged him with her murder.
Just last week I posted a long list of shootings and murders around here. Between those and the serial killings, most people are afraid to leave their homes. I wish the people in my community would come together and try and do something about the increasing violent crimes here.Happy New Years

Wow, T. Here Ricks had been admitted to Wake hospital (?) for an undisclosed illness and it was the Nurses who recognized him as the person the cops were looking for.
It say he had an arrest record and a charge in the 90's for attempted murder or something similar. Robbery, use of deadly force with weapon. Interesting comments at the link. People claiming the cops couldn't catch him, but some Nurses did.

I am wondering Filly, if they should look into this guy as a possible suspect in the other killings around here. I know that this one doesn't eactly fit the MO for the other murders but I think they should look closely at this one.
ETA: I think I may get my wish
City rallies together to reverse rising crime rate

From August 2011:
A judge sentenced a Rocky Mount man to more than 18 years in prison on Monday...
Ronald Carlton Hicks Jr. pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder in the Jan. 13, 2010, death of Melissa Jo Wise.
