Family wants answers after Burlington woman’s body found

BURLINGTON, N.C. — The family of a missing Burlington woman wants to know who killed the woman they loved so much. 

Debra Dianne Sellars disappeared in April and was last seen at her home in Burlington.

In early October, a hunter found human remains in the woods off of Union Ridge Road and DNA has linked the remains to Sellars.

“It’s a little closure to know that she’s not out lost in the world anymore, that’s closure but now I want closure to who done it,” said Sellars’ sister, Shelia Daye. 

The past six months have been rough for Sellars’ family. 

“I ride by her house daily thinking she’s going to come out one day on the porch, those were some of the things I was hoping,” said Daye.

Daye said she thinks Sellars’ ex-boyfriend, Rodney Enoch could’ve had something to do with her sister’s death. 

Court records show Enoch has been in trouble with the law for assaulting Sellars in the past.  Police haven’t officially named Enoch or anyone else a person of interest.

“Someone has murdered my sister. You hear it about other families, but this is my sister someone has murdered my sister,” said Daye.

Daye now knows a little behind her sister’s whereabouts, but she needs to know more.

“Her last moments: Did she die instantly? Was she out there suffering? Those are questions, Will i have answers to them?” Daye said.

Daye is confident that someday she will find out who killed her older sister, Dianne Sellars. 

“Time will tell, and if that’s what it’s going to take then I’m there for the ride all the way,” Daye said.

Sellars’ family is planning a memorial service for her next weekend. The investigation is ongoing.
