Wilkesboro Police have opened a death investigation, looking into the circumstances surrounding the death of a 50-year old from last Friday.  Wilkes EMS responded to the parking lot of Cub Creek Apartments late that afternoon with the medical call on a man suffering respiratory distress.  Donnie Ray Phillips ultimately died of what appeared to be natural causes, but an autopsy and a call from the medical examiner’s office have now caused that determination to be reviewed, launching the death investigation.  Phillips listed an address of 1443 Old 60 in Wilkesboro, and the death report indicates that police are seeking to interview all who had contact with him last Friday.  So far, no charges have come.
