Local police are searching for a Rocky Mount man suspected of killing his girlfriend Thursday night.

First-degree murder warrants have been obtained against Michael Andrew Gray Jr.

Rocky Mount police said Gray, 29, got into an altercation around 8:30 p.m. at his house on the 100 block of Zinnia Court. His girlfriend, Keri Jaye Edmondson, was wounded during the assault and Gray fled the scene before police arrived. Edmondson, 32, was taken to Nash General Hospital, where she died of her injuries.

Gray was last seen running from the residence wearing a black T-shirt, black shorts with a white stripe and no shoes. Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 977-1111 or crimestoppers@rockymountnc.gov. Text a tip to police at 274637 by beginning messages with RMPOL to direct the tip to the Rocky Mount Police Department and type up to 155 characters about the information.


Slow reporting!!

This happened over 21 hours ago and the Telegram is finally posting a story! What is up with that Telegram!


It didn't happened at a church or to a member of the Faith Base Community. The policy the RMT.PD. use will kill someone else the question is who will it be next time or who's family will have to suffer next because the city council and the Rmt. PD. wait for crime to take place when all the signs are there and the question is not if but when?

White guy, Black guy?

Did I miss this somewhere? It would help description-wise if we knew the race of individual being sought.


He is a 29-year-old black man. His picture will be posted here later, but I did tweet it earlier this afternoon, so you can see it there by searching for @BHandgraaf_RMT. I hope this helps.
