NC: Police shoot man dead after killing parents, officer and K-9

Via The Dorkfish Express

A long and complex manhunt for a man police say shot and killed his mother, father and a U.S. Forestry Service officer ended with the suspect’s death.

Police first went to the parents’ home in the 5500 block of Fish Hatchery Road around 8:45 a.m. Wednesday for a welfare check. Friends told police they hadn’t seen Levi and Rhonda Whisnant since last Friday.

Sheriff Steve Whisenant says it appears they died at least a day ago.

The discovery of the homicides was just beginning of a wild series incidents in the search for the suspect.

The sheriff’s office quickly named the victims’ son, 38-year-old Troy Whisnant, as a person of interest.  The case trickled into a North Carolina Highway Patrol investigation when troopers arrived on scene to assist. The highway patrol suspected Whisnant was also behind two recent vehicle thefts.
