Boyfriend Who Reported North Carolina's Sierra Kathleen Henderson Ashburn Missing Charged With Murder: Cops
Authorities say they found 28-year-old Sierra Kathleen Henderson Ashburn's body buried on the property of the home they shared together.
The search for Sierra Kathleen Henderson Ashburn, a missing North Carolina woman, ended abruptly when police discovered that her boyfriend, who reported her missing earlier that same day, was the one who killed her, authorities said.
Shaw had reported 28-year-old Ashburn missing early in the morning on Wednesday, May 6. When police arrived to their home, which they shared together, they said they discovered Ashburn was killed, and her body was buried on their property.
“She was like one of my own children. She was part of the family,” her friend Cari Williams told Sandhills Sentinel.
In the time before it was discovered Ashburn was killed, friends and family flooded social media with posts pleading for her safe return. Ashburn had worked as a groomer at PetSmart and was much loved by the community, Sandhills Sentinel reported.
