RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – The body of a 23-year-old man was found Thursday evening on Fisher Street, Raleigh police said.
Around 5:45 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 1600 block of Cross Street, where the body of LaQuan Cordarrelle Anderson was discovered in bushes behind a home on Fisher Street.
A dozen officers and detectives had at least two blocks roped off with police tape Thursday night.
A expletive filled 911 call made at 5:35 p.m. revealed kids found Anderson’s body.
“Can you send the police? One of the kids found a guy right behind my house,” the call said. “He’s dead, oh my God.”
After the 911 dispatcher asked the caller a few questions about the situation, the caller becomes upset.
“I don’t know what the (expletive) happened. What one of the kids came out here and found the guy laying down in the (expletive) backyard and he’s dead obviously,” the caller said. ” One of his shoes is off. He’s dead. He’s not responding. Period.”
Angela Anderson, the victim’s mother, said her son was shot Tuesday.
LaQuan Anderson leaves behind a young family, according to his mother.
“Always a price to pay for someone that did a terrible thing like whoever did this. You will reap what you sow one day. You will not have something good out of this. You took my son away from his children,” Anderson said.
Latisha Anderson, the victim’s sister said he had two boys.
“I imagine it’s not going to be too good, two boys left without a father,” she said.
The victim’s mother said she had not seen her son for two days. While she was at the police department filing a missing persons report, she got a call that they had found his body.
