Cumberland Co. Sheriff's Department turn to public for help in murder case

Posted: Updated:

Today, the Cumberland County Sheriff's Department will turn to the public to help solve the case of a murdered woman.

Felicia Diggs was shot the night of Nov. 5 in the Taylor's Creek Mobile Home Park off of U.S. Highway 301/South Eastern Boulevard.

She was taken to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center where she later died as a result of her injuries.

This is the second time in a week authorities are setting up a mobile command post to gather tips about the murder.

On Tuesday, homicide detectives set up a mobile command post at the Pearce's Mill Fire Station in an effort to get tips in the murder. Detectives also canvassed nearby neighborhoods, going door to door with a flier requesting information in the case.

Mark Jesse, the attorney assigned to represent Diggs as she faced cocaine trafficking charges, says she knew details about trafficking between Arizona and Arkansas. She provided information about the case, and Jesse feels she was killed because of that.

Jesse said the mother of three moved from Arizona to North Carolina because she was feeling threatened. He said even on the day she was killed she reported threats to him and a federal courts officer.

Thursday's mobile command post will be set up from 1-3 p.m. on Branson and Myrover Streets in Haymount.

If you have any information about the case, you can anonymously give it to the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office.
