Autopsy results are in on one of the victims in the double homicide that took place off Waller Road near Mount Olive in November 2013.

Tyrone Beamon Jr., 27, died by strangulation.

The autopsy results for the second victim, Shondrea Juanette Millhouse, 21, have not yet been released either to investigators or the public.

Investigators with the Wayne County Sheriff's Office say the case has stalled.

"We're stagnant," Capt. Richard Lewis said. "We are still actively working some things but we have no new leads."

Lewis said the public is encouraged to come forward with any information that might help solve the case.

The bodies of Beamon and Ms. Millhouse were discovered in his home at 638 Waller Road, just outside Mount Olive, on Nov. 5, 2013.

A family member went to check on Beamon after not hearing from him for a few days.

The couple were found beaten and tied up in a bathtub inside the home.

Police believe they had been there more than a day.

Three children were also inside the house-- Beamon's son, 3, and Ms. Millhouse's children, ages 4 and 1.

A $6,000 reward has been offered to anyone providing information leading to an arrest in the case.

Along with the money put up by Beamon's family and the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, a call to Crime Stoppers leading to a felony arrest might increase the reward up to $7,000.
