Cold Case Investigation - Ethel Weaver Homicide
Posted on 01/04/2023
At the beginning of January, the Statesville Police Department began investigating unsolved cases from previous years through a team of retired investigators. Over the last several months, retired SPD investigators were brought in to work part-time assisting with the background investigations of new applicants. With the reduction in the number of those vacancies, the department is now utilizing these investigators to focus on cold case investigations. They will be reviewing reports and evidence associated with specific cases and looking for new leads.

The first case assigned to the team is the homicide of Ethel Weaver. In the early morning hours of January 3, 1992, officers responded to 538 Bond Street where Ms. Weaver was found stabbed in her bedroom. There were no signs of forced entry to the residence. Investigators spoke with several subjects but were unable to identify a suspect in the case.

Anyone with information about this case is encouraged to contact the Statesville Police Department at 704-878-3515.
