Default WF, 75 strangled to death Tarboro, NC nursing home was "an acquaintance" of the aging negro rapist


Man charged in nursing home slaying
Friday, May 11, 2018

An aging registered sex offender accused of raping a fellow nursing home resident has now been charged with murder in the strangulation of another elderly woman at the Tarboro facility.

Trenneth Axel Pace, 60, has been arrested by the Tarboro Police Department on a count of first-degree murder in the early April death of 75-year-old Rebecca Eudy.

Pace was a resident of the facility and an acquaintance of Eudy, said Tarboro Police Chief Jesse Webb.

Detectives solved the extensive and complex case with the assistance of the State Bureau of Investigation. Tarboro Police Sgt. Brandon Richardson made the arrest.

Pace is awaiting trial in Edgecombe County on a charge of first-degree rape in a separate case. In that case, he's accused of sexually assaulting a 72-year-old female resident at the nursing home.

Pace also was previously arrested on an assault charge in December.

Pace, who has lived in North Carolina since 2012, is registered as a lifetime sex offender as result of an out-of-state conviction. In 1982, Pace was convicted of the strong-arm rape of a 14-year-old child and two counts of assault and battery of a child.

Tarboro police officers, along with other emergency services personnel, responded to a report of an unresponsive resident at around 10 p.m. April 5 at Open Fields Assisted Living facility at 3210 Western Boulevard.

“Upon arrival, officers found Rebecca Eudy, a 75-year-old female resident, deceased,” Webb said. “After initially assessing the scene, members of the police department’s Investigations Division requested an autopsy.”

At 4 p.m. the next day, medical examiners notified police that Eudy’s death was caused by manual strangulation, which means she was choked by someone using their hands.
