Hunter's shooting turns into murder investigation


Friends found 26-year-old Robert Devitto Wednesday evening in the wildlife game lands on Lower River Road when he didn't return from a duck hunting trip. He had been shot.

Devitto was taken off of life support Friday afternoon at WakeMed and died.

Deputies want to talk to anyone who may have been hunting in the area, or who saw at least two other vehicles parked to the left of Devitto's red Chevrolet truck.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (919) 775-5531 or leave an anonymous tip at (919) 718-4577.

A cash reward is being offered for any information regarding the case.
