WILMINGTON, N.C. – A Liberty man said he does not have any guilt about killing a motorcyclist in crash in Wilmington on Tuesday.

WECT reported that Eduard Patrick, 26, of Liberty, has been charged in the death of Shaun R.J. Murdock, 38, of Wilmington.

Authorities said it happened as troopers were trying to stop a 2013 Toyota for going 79 in a 55 mph in Brunswick County.

The suspect led troopers on a chase and crashed into the motorcyclist shortly after 7:15 a.m., according to WECT. The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The suspect was eventually arrested and faces charges of speeding, reckless driving, felony hit and run, felony speed to elude arrest and misdemeanor death by vehicle.

“I mean it was terrifying,” said Patrick, in a jailhouse interview with WECT. “But, I mean, I have no guilt, really. I mean, I still have no guilt.”

The suspect was jailed under a $500,000 secured bond in the New Hanover County Detention Center.
