Police charge 2 with murder in missing men’s deaths
Police have arrested two men in the homicides of Anthony James McCall, 21, and Brendan Robert Hurley, 23.
McCall and Hurley were reported missing on July 17, according to a Raleigh Police Department news release.
James Daishawn Robinson, 21, of Knightdale and Ryan Craig Veach, 19, of Raleigh are each charged with two counts of murder in the killings the release said. They are being held in the Wake County jail without bail.
A third person, a juvenile, is charged with accessory after the fact to murder.
The release provided no additional information, such as how the two men died.
McCall and Hurley were last seen Tuesday on Neuse Landing Lane in North Raleigh, according to ABC11, The News & Observer’s media partner.
Police said a Dodge Charger was found Wednesday on Raleigh View Drive in south Raleigh, WRAL reported. Family members said blood was on the passenger’s seat, the news station reported.
On public Facebook posts Laura Hurley said her son was supposed to pick her up Tuesday night but never showed up and did not report for work.
In a Saturday public post, after the arrests, she asked people not to contact her.
“My heart is gone my baby is gone and I am completely lost right now,” she wrote.
Hurley’s family told WRAL he was the father of a 2-year-old girl, the station reported.
The killings are at least the 16th and 17th homicides in Raleigh this year, according to statistics provided by the Raleigh Police Department.
There were 16 homicides in Raleigh in all of 2018, Deputy Chief Karen Riggsbee said last month.
