N.C. Woman Missing Since March Is Found Dead — and 3 Are Charged with Murder


Three people have been arrested and charged with murder in the death of a North Carolina woman who had been missing since March 28. Mary Collins, 20, was last seen walking along a Charlotte road at 2:30 p.m. on March 28. She was believed to be heading to see friends in the northern part of the city. But Collins never arrived to see her friends — and worried family members reported her missing two days later, on March 30. They told WBTV they feared for her safety because she had a cognitive disability. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department began investigating, and followed a tip to a home on Rollerton Road in a northeast suburb of Charlotte. At the home, they found the woman’s body on Saturday, April 4. The body was sent to the medical examiner’s office for an autopsy and identification. Want to keep up with the latest crime coverage?
