There have been no new developments in the murder investigation involving a 44-year-old Maxton man, authorities said Tuesday.
Deputies in neighboring Robeson County are trying to piece together what happened to Timothy Ray McCutchen, who found dead last week inside his home at 12096 NC. 130.
The death is being considered a homicide after an autopsy showed that McCuthen was the victim of blunt force trauma. McCutchen was found at about 7:30 a.m. last Wednesday, according to Maj. Howard Branch of the Robeson County Sheriff’s Department.
“We wish there was more to report, but we are still waiting on a name — on a suspect,” Branch said. “Blunt force trauma, though, that is what killed him, and that is the reason it is being investigated as a homicide.”
McCutchen was discovered by his landlord in bed covered in blood. He lived alone, officials said.
Born in 1967, McCutchen was last seen alive by his landlord, with whom he also works, around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.
According to Maxton officials, the investigation is being conducted by the sheriff’s department because McCutchen’s body was discovered outside of the Maxton town limits.
