— A judge has continued the order sealing search warrants in the September death of a UNC-Chapel Hill student.

The search warrants were resealed May 14 for another 60 days in the death of Faith Hedgepeth, 19, a junior from Warrenton.

A judge said previously the documents were sealed to keep information confidential that only investigators and the suspects might know. Police did release some information in January about DNA evidence gathered from the scene.

Hedgepeth was found dead Sept. 7, 2012, in her Hawthorne at the View apartment on Old Chapel Hill Road. Chapel Hill investigators still have not released a cause of death.

Anyone with information should call the Chapel Hill Police Department at 919-614-6363 or Crime Stoppers at 919-942-7515.

Calls to Crime Stoppers are confidential, and callers may be eligible for a reward of up to $39,000. Written information can be sent to crimetips@townofchapelhill.org.
