The State Bureau of Investigations and Watauga County
Sheriff’s Office are still investigating the death of a 50-year-old woman in
Blowing Rock and Sheriff Len Hagaman is optimistic that he’ll have answers in
the next week.
Sharon Yates of Clarence Newton Road was found dead at her
camper home just after 11:30 p.m. on November 28. Officials began seriously
investigating the case after a medical examiner returned with a report naming
the cause of death as “blunt force chest trauma, secondary to a pedestrian,
motor vehicle accident.”
Investigators are still conducting interviews, Hagaman
says. He expressed confidence in his department today, saying he hopes to have
more information to release soon.
