The Suspicious Death of Debbie Wolfe
December of 1985, the body of 28-year-old Debbie Wolfe was found at the bottom of a pond on her property in the outskirts of Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Debbie lived in a reclusive cabin in North Carolina with her two dogs, Morgan and Mason. She was a nurse who worked at the Fayetteville Veterans Administration Hospital nearby.
Debbie reported to work the morning of December 25th, 1985 for a typical work shift after which she headed home. Debbie was scheduled to return to the hospital the following morning, December 26th, at 8:00 a.m. When she failed to show, co-workers immediately started to worry about her as this type of behavior was extremely out of character for Debbie. They tried to reach her via phone but had no luck. Debbie’s co-workers eventually reached out to her mother and to see if she was able to reach her daughter.
Jenny Edwards, Debbie’s mother, could not reach her daughter that morning. As her concern began to grow, Jenny called up a family friend, Kevin Gorton. Together they headed over to Debbie’s cabin to check on her. Jenny was hoping that her daughter was simply sick and had been too ill to answer the phone.
