BERTIE COUNTY, N.C. – The Bertie County Sheriff’s Office is investigating another homicide.

Sheriff John Holley says the bodies of a man and a woman were found on Sutton Road Tuesday afternoon.

The sheriff would not release any other details at this time.

Back on April 7,  the naked decapitated body of escaped inmate Kelvin Singleton was found in an open field in Bertie County. Singleton was in jail for robbery with a dangerous weapon, kidnapping and larceny charges. One day before Singleton was to be transferred to Charlotte to face assault charges there, he escaped.
