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.

She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
