Be On the Lookout


Administrators at a Goldsboro charter school will meet with parents Monday after the principal was accused of raping a 12-year-old.

Goldsboro police are still searching for Richard Omar Knight, 35, of Smithfield, a former principal at Dillard Academy who is charged with raping a 12-year-old student on campus. Knight, 35 faces charges of statutory rape, a sex act with a student and indecent liberties with a student. Police responded to a report of sexual assault Thursday, and a warrant was secured Friday.

Update: WTVD says his body has been found in Orange County.

WRAL has sources that say his body was found in a wooded area.

In other news, shamelessly skimmed from WRAL:

The body of a North Carolina teacher declared dead in Mexico has been recovered, according to a Facebook post.

Patrick Braxton-Andrew, 34, “died on October 28 at the hands of a criminal organization that operates in the area where he was traveling,” according to a post made last week by a Facebook page that had been providing updates on the Davidson Spanish teacher.

The post said the information about his death came from Chihuahua State authorities.
