After a yearlong investigation with no suspects named, Chapel Hill police have reached out to the State Bureau of Investigation for more help investigating last year’s homicide of Faith Hedgepeth.
Hedgepeth was a UNC junior when she was found dead in her off-campus apartment on Sept. 7, 2012.
Sgt. Bryan Walker, a spokesman for the Chapel Hill Police Department, said the department asked the SBI to take a greater role in the investigation last week.
“So far, as to what kind of assistance they’re going to be offering, we don’t know,” Walker said.
Chapel Hill Police Chief Chris Blue said the department asked for additional assistance from the SBI as a natural next step in its investigation.
