Raleigh police not sure if North Hills woman knew her killer

From staff reportsMay 15, 2013 

— Police have not yet determined who killed a 30-year-old mother in her North Hills apartment this week nor do they know yet whether she knew her killer.

Police say they’ve increased patrols near the Allister North Hills apartment complex off Six Forks Road where Melissa Dawn Huggins-Jones was found dead Tuesday morning.

Huggins-Jones’ 8-year-old daughter found workers building apartments in the complex shortly after 7:30 a.m. and told them her mother was covered in blood and not responding.

A worker who called 911 said Huggins-Jones was not breathing and was cold to the touch, suggesting she had been dead a while. Police have not disclosed how she was killed.

Police ask anyone with information that might assist detectives to either call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357 or to go to the Crime Stoppers website at www.raleighcrimestoppers.org for instructions on how to report a tip online or by text message.
