The records in the Faith Hedgepeth homicide case have once again been sealed.
On May 14, Durham County Superior Court Judge Orlando F. Hudson Jr. ordered the records, including all search warrants and 911 calls in the case, to be resealed.
The order is applicable for 60 days, at which point the District Attorney’s Office in Durham will have to release the records or seek another resealing order.

UNC junior Faith Danielle Hedgepeth was found dead in her apartment on Sept. 7. Since then, law enforcement have released few details in the case:
*Sept. 10*: A Durham County Superior Court Judge sealed the search warrants for the first time. *Sept. 26*: Chapel Hill police released three redacted recordings of radio traffic in connection with the investigation. *Nov. 16*: The records were resealed. *Jan. 9*: With the help of the FBI, Chapel Hill police said they found male DNA at the scene. *Jan. 9*: The records were resealed again.
“The court finds that there is a preponderance of evidence to believe that the release of the information contained in the court order and application would undermine the ongoing criminal investigation,” the order states.
The records have been sealed repeatedly since Hedgepeth was found dead in her apartment the morning of Sept. 7.
