Dear Security On Campus:

Police found the body of 19-year-old Jessica Lee Faulkner inside a dorm around 1 p.m. Wednesday. The sophomore is from the Cary area.

Curtis Timothy Dixon, a UNC-Wilmington freshman from Charlotte, has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with Faulkner’s death. He is being held without bond in the New Hanover County Jail. Arraignment is set for Thursday.

There is no word about if the suspect and Faulkner knew each other or any possible motive.
