Man charged with murder after woman found dead in Mocksville hotel

The Davie County Sheriff's Office charged Quincy Hannah with murder after finding a woman dead in a hotel Monday. Investigators are still trying to find Hannah.

MOCKSVILLE, N.C. — The Davie County Sheriff's Office charged a man with murder after finding a woman dead in a Mocksville hotel Monday.

Deputies found 20-year-old Suzanne Kauffman dead at the Days Inn Monday night. Investigators said her body was in a room rented by 26-year-old Quincy Hannah. 

The investigation started when deputies got a call around 10 p.m. Monday to help two people at the hotel find missing phones. The people called one of the missing phones and got an answer from Kauffman, who told them to come to the Days Inn. 

The caller told deputies Kauffman had the phones last. Deputies found the phones and an Acura key along the side of the road near a Kentucky Fried Chicken on Yadkinville Road. Investigators found Kauffman's Acura car in the back of the parking lot soon after. 

Both Kauffman and Hannah are from Pennsylvania. Kauffman was in North Carolina for a camp. It's unclear why Hannah was in the state.

Hannah was last seen driving a 2009 light blue Toyota sedan with a Pennsylvania license plate reading LRE 6319. He may be driving back to Pennsylvania, according to the sheriff's office.

The sheriff's office said the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation and the Iredell Sheriff's Office has assisted with the investigation.

Anyone with information should call the sheriff's office at 336-751-6238 or email them at sheriff@dcsonc.com.
