RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — A suspect is being sought by authorities in connection with a November homicide, according to the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office.

Casey McCoy is wanted on a first-degree murder charge for the death of 47-year-old Eugene Cleve Staley.

Authorities found the victim dead after responding to a call at a home on Columbia Avenue in Ramseur at about 2:45 a.m. Nov. 20. Police said he had been shot and stabbed.

The call came in from a neighbor who said the victim’s 8-year-old son ran to them for help.

The boy ran to them with no shoes or shirt. He also had a wound to his arm, according to neighbors. Ramseur police say the child had also been assaulted.

Everette Hunter Jr., 23, of Asheboro, was arrested last week and faces a first-degree murder charge in connection with Staley’s death.
