Faith Danielle Hedgepeth

September 26, 1992 - September 7, 2012

Justice For Faith

Faith tells a former roommateREDACTED 1 that REDACTED 2 hated her and that he was going to kill her (Hedgepeth) if REDACTED 3 did not get back together with him.

A restraining order was issued against REDACTED 2 by REDACTED 3.  The basis of the restraining order was a domestic assault to which officers with the CHPD responded to on this same date. REDACTED 2 kicked two doors in the apartment off the frame….Affiant [Investigator Walker] received several accounts of REDACTED 3 being seen with visible injuries to her body that were reportedly inflicted by REDACTED 2.  Investigator Walker learned that REDACTED 2 resented Faith because of her influence over REDACTED 3.  Several witnesses also advised that REDACTED 2 considered Faith as a barrier to their relationship. 

REDACTED 4, REDACTED 3’s former boyfriend now just friends, spends the night on the couch in the girls’ apartment.   

REDACTED 2 sent a text to an acquaintance asking them to “forgive him for what he was about to do. He sent a tweet to another acquaintance, also asking them to forgive him for what he was about to do.”

Faith attends a rush event for UNC’s American Indian sorority, Alpha Pi Omega

Faith and
REDACTED 3 go to Davis Library on UNC campus to study; returning to Hawthorne apt. before midnight.

Faith and REDACTED 3 park in Wallace Parking Deck on East Rosemary Street and walks to The Thrill nightclub on Rosemary Street.

REDACTED 5, employee at the Thrill, is seen talking to REDACTED 9, one of the four men that enter the club together.

REDACTED 4  sees the girls at the night club but not afterwards.

Faith is seen walking out of the club with
REDACTED 6, one of the men in the group. She had met REDACTED 6 either that night or the prior weekend.

The four or five men REDACTED 6, REDACTED 7, REDACTED 8, REDACTED 9 and REDACTED 10 are seen leaving the club

Faith and
REDACTED 3 returned to their residence. 

Text message from Faith’s phone to the phone number for
REDACTED 4  “Hey B.  Can you come over here please?  REDACTED 3 needs you more aha.  You know. Please let her know you care.” 

Text message from Faith’s phone to
REDACTED 4  “Than.”

“Through Affiant’s training and experience, Affiant has probable cause that the text messages to phone number
REDACTED 4 from Hedgepeth’s phone were intended for REDACTED 4.” Inv. Britt 





A call from
REDACTED 11’s phone was made during the early morning hours, which fits the targeted location, date, and time frame specified in the cell tower dump.  This particular call suggests that REDACTED 11’s cell phone was in the target area, and that he was most likely the person in possession of the phone.

REDACTED 3 left the residence with REDACTED 12 

 [NOTE from Chambers “it should be noted that Faith’s roommate left the apartment at approximately 4:27 AM after she was picked up by her friend,
REDACTED 12. Mr. REDACTED 12 also resides at REDACTED Street, Chapel Hill with REDACTED 11REDACTED 12 and REDACTED 3 left the Hawthorne at the View apartment complex and drove to the REDACTED Street, Chapel Hill address where they stayed for the remainder of the night.  These facts along with the phone call suggests that REDACTED 11 may have known that Faith was in the apartment alone, or was about to be.] (Note from late February 2013)

Durham City Emergency Communications (911) receive a call on its emergency lines re: an unresponsive person located at 5639 Old Durham Road apartment number 1502.

REDACTED 3  “There’s blood everywhere. I don’t know what happened,” she told the operator.  “There’s stuff in my room that was not here before.  It looks like someone had come in here. It really does.”

Emergency responders arrive at 5639 Old Durham Road, apartment number 1502, where they find Faith Danielle Hedgepeth deceased in a bedroom.

Inv. Bostelman, CHPD interview
REDACTED 13, a close friend of Faith’s.  REDACTED 13 was at the apartment with REDACTED 3 when Faith’s body was discovered.   REDACTED 13 identified and provided Inv. Bostelman with the telephone number of REDACTED 4, a young man that had dated REDACTED 3  and had a physical relationship with her at one point, but was currently just a friend.  

Faith was found by her roommate around “11:30 a.m., she reportedly discovered the decedent on a slightly askew mattress with surrounding large amounts of blood.” “Based on investigative and autopsy findings it is my opinion that the cause of death is blunt force trauma to the head.”

CHPD receive a telephone call from one of Faith’s former roommates.  The former roommate REDACTED 1 states that “sometime between the months of May-July 2012, [Faith] told her that REDACTED 2 hated her (Hedgepeth), and told her that he was going to kill her (Hedgepeth) if REDACTED 3  did not get back together with him. 

REDACTED 4 is contacted by telephone and asked to come down to the CHPD and be interviewed.  He agreed.

Officers also recover a tweet by REDACTED 2 to another acquaintance, also asking them to forgive him for what he was about to do.
