Raleigh police now say it appears a home invasion and a nearby murder last weekend are separate incidents.

Two men have been charged in connection with a violent home invasion and vehicle theft on Wallingford Drive last Sunday.

Investigators are still searching for the person who killed 20-year-old Eleza Herrera a few minutes later. He was stabbed to death after stopping to help with a crash that happened just a few blocks away.

Anyone who might have seen or heard anything that could relate to either incident is asked to call Raleigh Crime Stoppers at (919) 834-HELP.
