CERRO GORDO, N.C. (AP) - Columbus County sheriff’s deputy say a man whose body was found in his home earlier this week had been killed.

Deputies returning to the home Tuesday morning found Mitchell’s body inside the home.

An autopsy conducted in Raleigh determined that Mitchell died of a gunshot wound.
