Reward increased to $25,000 for information about August murder of brothers in Atlantic
The Carteret County Sheriff’s Office has increased the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the deaths of two brothers in Atlantic in August.
On August 3, the bodies of Phillip Fulcher and his youngest brother, William were found at their home on Clem Fulcher Court. An autopsy performed at ECU Health Medical Center in Greenville ruled their deaths as homicides.
Sheriff Asa Buck said there were signs of a violent fight at the scene and that it’s likely more than one person was involved. He added that the suspect or suspects could be injured, and the brothers likely knew their killer or killers.
The reward has been increased from $2,000 to $25,000.
A new telephone tip line has been issued specifically for this case, and people with information can call (252) 727-4636.
