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.
“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.
The Hedgepeth family said they were not specifically informed about the resealing, but Roland Hedgepeth, Faith’s father, said he was not surprised.
“I don’t know how much longer this is going to go on, but my understanding is that they have to convince a judge that it is of utmost importance to the case, so I have to assume that the judges know what they’re doing,” Hedgepeth said.
He said the family is doing as best as they can given the situation.
“At this point, about as well as can be expected, considering that we know absolutely nothing, still, about what happened,” he said.
