According to the North Carolina general statutes, sheriff’s investigators can use a nontestimonial order to obtain an array of material evidence including fingerprints, palm prints, footprints, blood specimens, hair samples, voice samples and photographs.
Willoughby said the order is less intrusive procedure than a search warrant that requires a lower standard of proof.
“A search warrant requires probable cause, but with a nontestimonial order you are only required to have reasonable suspicion to suspect some person,” Willoughby said Wednesday. (News Observer)

It is a mystery as to who murdered Michelle Young in her home. Investigators search the crime scene and interview witnesses. Authorities think Young was murdered sometime between midnight to about 6:00 AM Friday morning.
“It’s a mystery. That is what’s so gripping about it,” Van Susteren told WRAL Thursday evening. “People are supposed to be safe in their homes, but they’re not, as demonstrated by this woman.”
Investigators said Young had been at home with friends until about 10:30 p.m. the night before her body was found. Her husband, Jason Young, told authorities he was out of town on business when his sister-in-law, Meredith Fisher, found his wife’s body.
Fisher told authorities she had received a call from Jason Young asking her to go to his house to pick up something. Authorities said it was a fax.
