Vigil to be held for murdered UNC student



CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Family, friends and students will gather for a vigil Monday to remember a murdered University of North Carolina Chapel Hill student.

Faith Danielle Hedgepeth, 19, was found dead in her apartment at the Hawthorne at the View complex Friday.

Eyewitness News talked to Hedgepeth’s father, who lives in Catawba County about his daughter.

“She was a very pretty girl on the outside but even more than that she had a pretty heart. She put a smile on everyone’s face,” said Roland Hedgepeth.

Police aren’t saying how Hedgepeth was killed.

Investigators have not made an arrest or named any possible suspects in the murder. They don’t believe the crime was random.

A $2,000 reward is being offered for any information in the crime.
