Police Cite DNA Evidence In UNC Student's Death

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) -- Police in Chapel Hill say DNA evidence left at the scene of the murder of a UNC-Chapel Hill student has provided them with a break in the case.


Friends found the body of 19-year-old Faith Danielle Hedgepeth in her apartment last September. She was a biology major from Warrenton who friends say wanted to be a doctor.


A statement issued by police Tuesday said evidence analyzed by the N.C. State Crime Lab has revealed DNA left at Hedgepeth's off-campus apartment by a male suspect.


Investigators believe the suspect was familiar with Hedgepeth and may have lived near her in the past. They also think the killer's behavior might have changed after her death, such as an unusual interest in the case or a change in performance at work or school.
