Body Found Outside Wilmington Apartment Complex

JUNE 1, 2005 -- Investigators say 21-year-old Lamar Deandre Glaspie was found lying on the ground with gun shot wounds. His body was discovered outside an apartment at Market North off Metting Road near Market Street.

Around midnight Tuesday, police were called to the complex after residents heard gun fire. Police didn't find Glaspie's body until 3:00 Wednesday morning.

David Welch was the one who noticed Glaspie, but didn't think he was dead.  "I started to approach but thought better of it. It could have been someone who was drunk so I came back and called the police. It's normally a quiet neighborhood."

For now, police don't know why Glaspie was killed or who may have shot him.
