Homicide is not suspected

The Havelock Police Department is investigating the death of a person in the Pine Villa Apartment complex off Brown Boulevard.

Havelock Police Chief David Magnusson said the person’s death was not a homicide, and that the public should not be alarmed.

Magnusson said the exact cause of death is not known and would likely be determined through a forensic examination. He did not indicate that the death was a suicide.

He did not release the name of the person, but described the person as someone in their 20s.

“We’re going to follow leads and check on things, but at this point, it is not a homicide,” Magnusson said. “There’s no one on the loose we’re looking for and no reason for the public to be concerned. It’s an ongoing investigation.”
