Wilkes authorities say they know who’s responsible for the
shooting death of North Wilkesboro’s Jonathan Whitmore.
Whitmore was found shot
in the head in a ditch near his residence at the intersection of Holland Street
and Mimosa Lane last month. Authorities have been tight-lipped about the case-
but with yesterday’s arrest of Durham’s 42-year-old Keith Donnell Miles,
they’re making brief statements.
The State Bureau of Investigations and Durham Police
raided Miles’ home yesterday, according to officials within Wilkes Sheriff’s
Office. Deputies say the motive was business-related, and won’t elaborate on
what sort of business. The investigation isn’t over, but deputies are confident
the right man is in custody.
