Ross is believed to have fled from North Carolina to Delaware the day the two bodies were discovered, Orange County Sheriff Charles Blackwood said. “A juvenile petition was secured for Ross (determining) him as a suspect by processing the crime scene and surrounding area,” the sheriff said, WFMY-TV reported Monday. “These efforts led investigators to believe that Ross is responsible for the death of Clark and Woods.” Blackwood said his office worked with the FBI to locate and detain the suspect. Ross was arrested Oct. 5 and returned to North Carolina the following week, according to the News & Observer. Jeff Nieman, Orange County assistant district attorney, said two people in Delaware have been charged with harboring a fugitive for their role in helping Ross, WRAL reported. Although it took nearly two months for authorities to be able to release the suspect’s name, investigators are not sharing many details about the evidence available. “We do recognize the importance of providing information to the public but what we don’t want to do is do anything to jeopardize the proper adjudication of this case,” Nieman said, according to WRAL. Clark’s mother, Tiffany Concepcion, said she is determined to see justice done for her murdered son.

“He never hurt anybody, so for him to get done like this is — I have to have answers,” Concepcion said, the News & Observer reported. Ross’ next court appearance is set for Tuesday, according to WFMY. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
“It was a hard push for me to wait for this day,” Devin Clark’s mother Tiffany Concepcion said. “We got a little piece of justice done…It’s a little bit of closure but it’s not a lot, because we have a lot more we have to solve in this case.” https://t.co/ooIwT9IHu7— WFMY News 2 (@WFMY) October 6, 2022
