Deputies ID man, woman involved in apparent murder-suicide in Aurora

Updated: Jan 22, 2020 / 01:49 PM CST

AURORA, N.C. (WNCT) Deputies have identified the individuals involved in a murder-suicide reported in Aurora Tuesday morning.

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office has confirmed that 31-year-old Craig Lamont Sawyer and 25-year-old Alisha Marie Morgan were found shot to death inside the home at 48 Austin Road.

Investigators learned that Sawyer and Morgan have a child in common.

The child was not at the Austin Road home at the time of the shooting.

The Sheriff’s Office Communications Center spoke to Morgan’s mother at 8:35 am.

She reported that Sawyer, believed to be in possession of a gun, had gone to Morgan’s place of employment and forced her to leave with him.

Deputies responded to the Austin Road address where they found both Sawyer’s and Morgan’s cars parked in the yard.

Deputies were able to speak to Sawyer through a closed and locked door but he refused to let them in his house or allow Morgan to come out.

After about one hour and 40 minutes, Sawyer stopped communicating with deputies.

Seconds later multiple shots were heard inside the house.

When deputies breached the door, they found Sawyer in the hallway suffering from a single gunshot wound and Morgan in a nearby bedroom suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.

EMS personnel pronounced both dead at the scene.

The investigation into a motive is still ongoing.
