DURHAM — Police are asking for the publics help in finding whoever is responsible for a grisly, 2009 homicide at an apartment in South Durham.
It was just after 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 30, 2009, when police were called to the home of Ronald Fetherson, 53, at 1207 Truman Street at the McDougald Terrace Apartments.
Someone had stabbed Fetherson five times, including a fatal wound to the neck. The killer also had struck Fetherson in the face and head and had cut off his penis and one of his earlobes, police said.
