    From CHERIE.T's link above:

    BBM The first sentence I bolded is just what LE said in the Brendan Tevlin murder. The second sentence is exactly what happened to Brendan. In that case, it was random. I'm guessing this case will be similar. Hope LE can track the killer(s).

    Sad that anyone can arbitrarily take the life of a promising young man -- or woman, for that matter.

    This is local for me. Dunedin isn't the best of neighborhoods. Western Branch is normally considered a pretty safe place to live...except Dunedin. None of the articles say why he was in that neighborhood. Was he visiting a friend? Did he get shot before entering that neighborhood? There's way too many questions to jump to conclusions. My initial thought and it's ONLY MY OPINION was that drugs were involved. Mainly because of the neighborhood. If he was shot in that neighborhood then someone heard those shots and probably knows where they came from but isn't talking maybe out of fear from retaliation. Some of the comments on the article linked were interesting.
    Once again, I do not know this young man. I'm only basing my opinion or thoughts on what I have read and what I know of the neighborhood.

    TY for your local input Lizzybeth! One reason I highly doubt Baldwin was targeted because of an involvement in drugs is that he was fairly new to the community (within the past year). IDK, I'd think a drug user who already had a drug source would be unlikely to relocate to begin with, and that it would take a while in a new community to establish a new source because he couldn't just start asking around for someone who distributes a certain drug.

    But, I do think it's more probable that someone who was looking for drug money or was high on drugs attempted to rob or carjack him. Or, it could have been a case of mistaken identity by a dealer or gang member. So, his murder may be indirectly related to drugs. JMO

    I respect your opinion but have to disagree. The Outer Banks isn't THAT far from this area. Maybe three hours at the most and the way it is around here, people are traveling back and forth every weekend. Just because he lived in NC doesn't mean he didn't have a lot of friends here and his dad had a business in Chesapeake. That being said, it doesn't mean the bullet wasn't meant for someone else. I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't hear anything else about this in the local MSM. Some things tend to happen like that. I went back to the original WAVY article and the comments are gone. That's REALLY unusual.

    It's an hour and a half drive from Kill Devil Hills, NC to Chesapeake, VA. Suffolk is a little bit longer. There are not a lot of jobs on the Outer Banks during the winter because it is primarily a beach resort area. Everything pretty much shuts down. All the jobs are in the Chesapeake, Virginia Beach and Norfolk area.

    You're right LampChop. I must have been thinking Rodanthe. It's a little farther than Kill Devil Hills. Or maybe I just drive slow. :)

    Family and I vacay in the Outer Banks several times a year all year long. As more and more folks live there 12 months a year, many businesses operate the same. Most construction type jobs are going on from early spring through late fall when the temps are warm. We have a friend who installs pools and does that during those months.

    I will say that I know for a fact there is a lot of drug activity down there.... usually in certain areas.

    This young man who was killed, I pray his murderer (s) is found.

    I don't know how I missed this one and this is local for me. I tried a Google search, but most of what is covered here is about what I found online. It appears from earlier reports the family gave LE the name of a suspect early on, but that hasn't resulted in anything.
