CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
The 17-year-old girl who was killed in a north Charlotte park early Tuesday morning was pregnant, police announced Thursday.
People walking through Elder Park on Rockwell Church Road found the body of Hawa Gabiddon just after midnight.
She had been shot in the head.
Police said Thursday she was pregnant, which makes finding her killer even more urgent.
“This is yet another discovery and it just adds another level to the case. And we still have to bring it to a conclusion,” said Deputy Chief Kerr Putney.
Police said they need the public’s help to solve the case, though.
They are asking anyone with information about the crime to call Crime Stopper at 704-334-1600.
