NORTH TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WECT) – Officers with the North Topsail Beach Police Department are investigating a possible double fatal stabbing that happened Thursday night.

According to WITN, Willa-Jo Greene was watching the moon rise around 10:30 p.m. on the beach along Ocean Drive when a woman ran up to her covered in blood.

"She said, 'My husband, we just got married - he's dead,'" said Greene.

According to the police, officers responded to the beach strand between Ocean Drive and Village Stump Sound and found two deceased men on the sand. Their names have not yet been released.
