The 17-year-old man accused of murdering 14-year-old Lyric Woods and 18-year-old Devin Clark in Orange County, North Carolina, is in police custody.
Orange County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday afternoon that the suspect was detained Wednesday afternoon however the identity of the suspect will not be released at this time.
The North Carolina Beat is confirming more details with our sources, and we plan on releasing the suspect’s name later this week.
We hope this apprehension provides some relief to the families and friends of Devin and Lyric, who have experienced an excruciating loss. Obviously, the capture of the suspect does not restore their loved one to them. The grieving process is a long one, and we hope the community will continue to support them in their pain, Blackwood said.
Clark’s mother, Tiffany Concepcion, told The North Carolina Beat that she was relieved after she got the call.
It’s been a long 17 days, Concepcion said. I am relieved and happy that the person is in custody because two beautiful children lost their lives for no reason.
Clark and Woods’s bodies were found in western Orange County found just before 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 18, by two men who were riding ATVs, according to police.
Family members reported Lyric missing on Saturday afternoon, and a deputy filed a missing person’s report at 3:44 p.m.
Clark’s family contacted the Mebane Police Department on Sunday with concerns about his whereabouts. An officer filed a police report around 1:42 pm.
