by Tom Chillemi
The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office is still investigating the death of Edwin Barry Hughes, 49, of Wake, who died on May 12 following an altercation at Bush Park Camping Resort in Wake, reported Major M.E. Sampson on Monday.
The lead detective has been working full-time on this case and progress is being made, said Sampson. As of Monday the detective was awaiting the autopsy report from the State Medical Examiner, he said.
The cause of the altercation is under investigation, and Sampson said he could not release more information because it could affect the investigation.
Sampson said the detective hopes to complete the investigation soon, especially for the sake of the grieving family.
Sampson asked anyone with information, photos or video to please contact the Middlesex Crime Line at (804) 758-5600.
