Authorities in Orange County, North Carolina are currently conducting an investigation to identify the individual responsible for defacing a memorial dedicated to the remembrance of Lyric Woods, a 14-year-old, and Devin Clark, an 18-year-old. The two friends who were previously reported missing were ultimately discovered deceased along an isolated ATV trail.
It has been mentioned that there are intentions to harm the memorial of these cherished friends.
According to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office, a report was received at approximately 4 p.m. regarding the vandalism of a memorial located at the intersection of Buckhorn and Yarborough Road. The memorial was defaced with derogatory language, including racial slurs such as the “N-Word,” offensive language, and derogatory terms.
On September 17, 2022, Woods and Clark were discovered dead from a gunshot wound to the back of their head while running from a vehicle near a powerline access point on Buckhorn Road in Orange County. The two had been reported as missing for a day when theirbodies were discovered by two individuals who were on (ATVs).
In January, a judge denied bail to Isaiah Ross, who is facing charges for the homicide of the two friends. The North Carolina Beat has received information indicating that Ross has been highly engaged on Snapchat.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Orange County Sheriff’s Office at (919)-245-2918.
