Cold Case: Murder of Teenage Boy Still Unsolved
After nearly 10 years, investigators plea for help from public to find killer.
Tuesday, February 7, 2006
It's a 10-year old murder mystery. In 1996 someone killed a 16-year-old Goldsboro boy and left his body in a field in
A decade later-- and still no arrests. But there are plenty of questions for both the family and investigators. Even
with the questions, they believe this case can still be solved.
"It doesn't get any easier. He was my baby, and he was wrenched from my heart," said Linda Graybeal of
Linda and her husband John Graybeal cling to every memory they have of their son Jared-- especially the last time
they saw him alive.
"He came through here and came running to me at my recliner, and he pulled me up and said, 'I love you, mom,'"
said Mrs. Graybeal.
Jared Graybeal was 16-years-old. On the morning of April 4th, 1996 a Lenoir County farmer found his body lying in a
field between Kinston and La Grange.
"The body of Jared Graybeal was actually located at the end of that collard patch out there," said Maj. Chris Hill,
with the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office.
He had been stabbed several times in the chest and neck.
"This is one of those cases that you're not going to forget, and we're never going to forget him," said Hill.
Major Hill is one of the many investigators from Lenoir County, the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, Goldsboro Police,
and the State Bureau of Investigation-- who has poured in countless hours to solve this case.
They turned up a key piece of evidence about a half-mile from the field. It was the knife they believe was used to kill
"It's quite possible that the person who did it, was driving the car and threw the items out the window," said Hill.
Another piece of evidence-- a car. Investigators believe Jared borrowed it from a friend in Goldsboro working at a
restaurant that used to be called "Cafe Edelweiss."
Hill says the car showed up near the restaurant in Goldsboro about two hours before Jared's body was discovered
in Lenoir County.
"The Goldsboro officers responded to it, and at the time they did not know that car was connected with a homicide,"
The Graybeals believe their son never left the restaurant parking lot on his own will.
"I think some people got him, people came up and got in on either side," said Mr. Graybeal.
Maj. Hill says they still have a lot of unanswered questions. But as for the key question-- investigators believe they
do know who's responsible.
"You know in your heart who did it, but you can't do anything about it, and we don't live in a society where we just
punish people on a whim just because we have a gut feeling of who we think it was," said Hill. "We have to be able
to show twelve people that this person beyond a reasonable doubt committed a crime."
"From day-one I've always said that I would rather them not arrest anybody and take it to trial and then the person
get off," said Mr. Graybeal.
But every second that goes by, the Graybeals and investigators believe it's another second that someone is
"We received a call that said Jared had either been killed or killed somebody, yes," said Mr. Graybeal. "That was a
horrible voice on the phone, and that was before we knew he died," said Mrs. Graybeal.
Now those seconds have turned into years.
"Ten years have almost passed now, and there maybe somebody out there we never talked to who actually knows
something about this case. They may have heard somebody bragging about it, and if that person's out there,
hopefully they'll come forward and say I've got something to tell you," said Hill.
For the Graybeal family and investigators-- hope of solving Jared's case lives on, because evidence never dies.
And regardless of the punishment here-- the Graybeals believe the ultimate punishment is in the hands of a higher
"We pretty much leave the punishment in the Lord's hands. He'll take care of it," said Mrs. Graybeal.
Police desperately need your information to solve the murder of Jared Graybeal.
If you know anything-- call Lenoir County Crimestoppers at 252-523-4444 or Wayne County Crimestoppers at
919-735-2255. You don't have to give your name-- just your information. A reward of up to $7,000 is being offered
in this case.
