Authorities in North Carolina have recovered the bodies of two teenagers who were reported missing over the weekend. Lyric Woods, 14, and Devin Clark, 18, were found shot to death along a hiking trail in Orange County, according to a statement from the Orange County Sheriff's Office. The bodies were found Sunday afternoon by men riding ATVs in the area. "Family members reported Lyric missing Saturday afternoon to the Orange County Sheriff's Office," the statement reads. "Devin Clark's family contacted the Mebane Police Department on Sunday with concerns about his whereabouts." Lyric was a ninth grader at Cedar Ridge High School in Hillsborough and Devin was a senior at Eastern Alamance High School in Mebane. The teens were described as acquaintances. It was unclear Tuesday when they were last seen. On Monday, the families of both victims visited the site where their bodies were found dead, reports WTVD. Lyric's parents left flowers and a cross while Devin's mother, Tiffany Concepcion, spoke to the station, saying she will not rest until there is an arrest. "He never hurt anybody, so for him to get done like this is — I have to have answers," Concepcion said. "I want to get justice and I don't care where I have to go, what I have to do, who I've got to talk to, I'm going to keep going and keep doing it."














Decades-old audio tape reveals clues into 1971 cold case killing
For 50 years, the slaying of a Maryland sheriff’s deputy remained a mystery. Last year, two detectives dove into the case of James Tappen Hall with fresh eyes. Inside a box of evidence they found an old reel-to-reel tape. And after listening to that recording, things began to take a turn. The long-forgotten audio, police say, was among a string of clues that led them to a 70-year-old living in a high-rise apartment building in Upstate New York. “He appears to have been living a quiet life,” said Sgt. Chris Homrock, head of the Montgomery County Police Department’s cold case unit. Officials identified the suspect Wednesday as Larry David Smith of Little Falls. In court papers, police accused him shooting Hall the night of Oct. 23, 1971, in a parking lot of the Manor Country Club in Rockville. At the time, Hall was working a part-time security job, and according to investigators, came upon Smith — just 19 at the time — who had just broken into a nearby home and was trying to get to his getaway car parked in the dark lot. Hall was taken to a hospital and died three days later, leaving behind a wife and two children. “Daddy was a great man,” Hall’s daughter, Carolyn Philo, said this week. “When he put on his sheriff’s uniform, he shined.” In the early 1970s, detectives thought Smith was someone who might have known what happened to Hall, but they did not suspect him of being the actual perpetrator, according to court records. But in the recording — of Smith talking to detectives in 1973 — he knew details about the shooting that police had never released to the public, including how many times Hall was fired upon. Investigators who revived the investigation last year researched Smith. Several things caught their attention. He grew up near the country club. He had a criminal history, they now assert, of burglary, assault, shoplifting and escape. And he had changed his name — from Larry David Becker in the 1970s to his current name of Larry David Smith. “Investigators believe that this was done purposefully to avoid any further investigation into his involvement in this offense,” detectives wrote in court papers. Last week, Montgomery County Police Detectives Lisa Killen and Katie Leggett drove to Little Falls, N.Y., and interviewed Smith. He “admitted to accidentally shooting Sheriff [Deputy] Hall after Hall confronted him as he was taking property from the burglary on Beverly Road back to an awaiting getaway vehicle,” detectives asserted. “He was just out there doing his job,” Leggett said, noting that Hall wasn’t even supposed to be working that night. “He was filling in for another guy who couldn’t come in.”
