Governor Offers Reward in Warren County Murder

RALEIGH -- A $5,000 governor’s reward is offered to solve the Warrenton murder of Stanley Ray Richardson. Warren County Sheriff’s Office deputies found Richardson, 40, shot to death in the yard of his Rabbit Bottom Road residence on January 22. Richardson was a member of the Haliwa-Saponi Tribe.

Sheriff’s investigators and the SBI have attempted to identify two men who were recorded on

surveillance video

footage around the time of the homicide walking toward Richardson’s house and then running away a short time later.

“We believe there are citizens with knowledge about this murder who we have not yet spoken with and we hope the publicity from this reward will encourage witnesses to come forward,” stated SBI Special Agent Phillip Stevens.

The Warren County Sheriff’s Office and the State Bureau of Investigation are hopeful that this reward will encourage those with information that could lead to the arrest and conviction of Richardson’s killer to come forward.

The county and state authorities request anyone with information about this case to contact the sheriff’s office at (252) 257-1356 or the SBI at (919) 662-4500.
