Chapel Hill Police officers are on the scene of a death at Deming Rd.

UPDATED: Mother and son found dead in home on Deming Road

When Dirk Cotton and his family moved to their home on Deming Road in 2005, one of Margaret Gibson’s sons knocked on their door with an apple pie at hand.  “I thought it was a really sweet thing to do. I hadn’t seen anyone do that in decades," he said. "The incident was surprisingly depressing."  Thursday Oct. 12, the Cottons found out their neighbors, Margaret Gibson, 86, and her son, Eric Gibson, 53, had died in their Chapel Hill home in 442 Deming Road.
