Detective Sergeant Michael worked alongside the FBI and the Edenton Police Department in order to obtain an arrest warrant for 19-year-old Kavondre Levecchio Dillard.

Dillard was arrested on May 19, 2024 in Portsmouth and then transferred to North Carolina for processing, according to police. On June 4, Dillard was placed under a $1 million bond at the Chowan County Detention Center.

“The FBI has always been an agency that leads from the front,” EPD Chief Henry King said. “I am proud to say that having the FBI, ATF, and HSI working daily at the Edenton Police Department is a game changer for our citizens, but today, all the praise goes to the FBI Manteo office.”

Edenton police also said they need to speak to 23-year-old Asia Nicole White in connection with the incident. Anyone with any information on her whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Edenton Police Department at 252-482-444.
