A 62-year-old Cove woman is dead, and the Union County Sheriff’s Office is calling it a suspected homicide. Loretta Williams called 911 to report a man in her backyard. Dispatchers heard her confront the man, and then heard a loud noise. Deputies and troopers arrived minutes later, and found Williams, who had been shot to death. Detectives are interviewing several persons of interest, but so far, no arrests.
