NC teenager found dead in his home


KELFORD, N.C. – Shaquan Jamar Taylor, 18, was found dead in his home Thursday in Bertie County.

The Bertie County Sheriff’s Office and the SBI said an autopsy is planned. While no cause of death is known yet, it is being investigated as a homicide.

Taylor’s roommate found him sitting in a chair, dead from a gunshot.

Sheriff John Holley said, despite the physical closeness of the crimes, this case is not connected to the case of escaped convict Kelvin Singleton, who was found beheaded in the area last week.
