The body of Valerie Hamilton was found at the Mini-Storage Center on Monroe Road.
CMPD Detectives have issued a murder warrant for Michael Neal Harvey, 34, the man Hamilton was last seen with. Detailed coverage at WBTV News here.
Harvey was seen driving a 1996 white Chevy Blazer, with North Carolina license plate ZXE - 1756. Harvey's vehicle is either 2-door or 4-door, police said.
The Blazer may look smilier to the one above.
Harvey is no stranger to Charlotte Mecklenburg Police officers. His priors include a long list of property crimes, drug use and weapons charges in Mecklenburg County as well as a 1996 rape conviction in New York. Check out Jeff Taylor's The Meck Deck
for details regarding Harvey's priors.
Below the many faces of Michael Harvey his two most recent arrests occurred in March of this year.
Cedar Posts Takeaway:
Major props to CMPD officers, crime scene techs and detectives. We know this is not the outcome you were working towards, but you will find this murderer and with his arrest justice for Valerie.
WBTV news broke this story early Sunday morning. The Charlotte Observer's budget cuts left no one to cover night beat news so Charlotte's only crime metro reporter was zzzzzzzing.
How much has news changed? Cedar Posts learned about the warrant and discovery of Valerie's body via twitter props to @kokomodianne and per @CopaCavanna.
Suggest BOLO for New York State and Canada.
