Morrisville Police provided a Wednesday update on the mysterious homicide case involving Semar Barbour, a 19-year-old Durham man who had been missing for almost a month. Barbour disappeared on October 23, and the grim discovery of his body was made on November 13 in the back seat of his car, which was parked in a Morrisville neighborhood.
Despite an extensive investigation, Morrisville Police revealed that Barbour was killed “in another jurisdiction,” and his body was subsequently left in Morrisville. However, the police did not disclose the specific jurisdiction where they believe Barbour was killed. In light of this information, the case will be referred to the appropriate authorities for further investigation.
Earlier statements from the police indicated that if evidence suggests Barbour was killed in Durham, the case could be transferred back to Durham Police. The lack of details regarding the jurisdiction and circumstances surrounding the homicide has left much of the mystery unresolved, leaving investigators and the public awaiting further developments in the ongoing investigation.
