Mecklenburg Mother's Body Found

Police are investigating the suspicious death of a Mecklenburg County mother.

24-year-old Tereasa Puryear was found late Wednesday evening behind a church.

One of Puryear's neighbors said the victim told her she was going for a walk, but Puryear never returned.

"After she had been gone about 20 minutes, I caller her and texted her and I didn't get anything back from her," said Latarsha House. "I knew something was wrong because she doesn't normally leave her kids."

Police have a person of interest I the case, but continue their investigating. Authorities have not released a cause of death.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Mecklenburg Sheriff's Office at 1-888-624-2201.
