3 Charged With Murder in Triad Woman's Drug Overdose Death

NC State Crime Lab Overwhelmed By Opioids Testing

LEXINGTON, N.C.-- The Davidson County Sheriff's Office has charged three people in connection to a woman's death in June 2017. 

Sheriff Grice says deputies started the investigation after they responded to a call, on Maple Lane, about an overdose death. When they arrived to the scene, officers found 39-year-old Hilda Meadows.

The investigation revealed that Timothy Hamrick injected opioids into Meadows. Jessica Goins and William Corder are accused of proving drugs to Meadows and Hamrick. 

All three have been charged with 2nd Degree Murder. 

UPDATE | Sheriff Grice announced Saturday evening that Timothy Hamrick is now in custody.

We spoke to the victim's nephew, Robert Meadows, who says his aunt knew the suspects well.

Sheriff Grice said they had to wait on toxicology results which took a while because the NC Medical Examiner's Office is very busy.
