Reports tonight from WSOC and WBTV who have been leading the way on the Valerie Hamilton murder case, help fill in the blanks and then create more questions.
According to WSOC the mother of Harvey’s 5-year-old child was told by CMPD investigators that Harvey and Hamilton were at Harvey's home on 15th Street the night she disappeared.
According to the woman, people in the house stated that Hamilton “appeared to need immediate medical attention" and that Hamilton left with Harvey to go to the hospital.
While just speculation, it would seem that Harvey rather than risk going to the hospital which would subject him to law enforcement scrutiny elected to pay for a hotel room in hopes that Hamilton would sleep it off.
It is also being reported that friends of Hamilton say she was not into drugs, and that if she took drugs it would have been against her will.
WSOC's report is here.
All this leads to other questions like why didn't the reported people at the 15th Street home come forward? Where is the hot tub referenced in the 3AM call?
Finally could Valerie Hamilton be a closet junkie?
Surprising the number of young people who are closet junkies. More about the growing use of Heroin among today's under 30 crowd here.
And deaths from Heroin overdoses are on the rise.
