How many homicides went unsolved in North carolina in 2011?

A. The focus of MyReporter.com is answering questions about life in Coastal North Carolina, so we looked into homicides in Brunswick, New Hanover and Pender counties.

Two 2011 murders in the three-county area remain unsolved, local law enforcement agencies reported.

Nine people were murdered in the city of Wilmington in 2011, and arrests have been made in connection with seven of them, said Wilmington Police Cpl. Kevin Smith.

The two cases that remain unsolved are the July stabbing death of 59-year-old Pine Valley resident Carol Ann Johnson and the late June shooting of 16-year-old Tony Leon Harris Jr. in the 900 block of North Fifth Avenue.

The New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office investigated three homicides in 2011, and arrests were made in all three, sheriff’s officials said.

In Brunswick County, four people were murdered in 2011, and arrests were made in all four cases, according to the Brunswick County Sheriff’s Office.

Two homicides occurred in unincorporated Pender County in 2011, and both resulted in arrests, said Pender County Sheriff’s Capt. Jamie Ezzell.
