North Carolina teenagers, Lyric Woods and Devin Clark’s bodies found in 911 call

A recently released recording of a 911 call captures the chilling moment a passerby reports the gruesome discovery of the bullet-riddled bodies of teenagers Lyric Woods and Devin Clark in North Carolina earlier this month.

The audio was released by local officials as the Orange County Sheriff’s Office continues its search for the 17-year-old suspected of shooting the teenage friends dead.

Woods, 14, and Clark, 18, were each last seen by their families on the night of September 16.

The next day, a group of ATV riders found the bodies of high school students near power lines in Mebane.

« I guess I was just calling to report a non-emergency situation, but it’s a pretty serious matter. I’d like to speak to the officer in person, but what we found out is that we actually discovered two dead bodies,” the witness told an operator during the 911 call obtained by Fox News.

Lyric Woods was a freshman at Cedar Ridge High School.

He said the bodies were near a gravel road under power lines parallel to an ATV path.

« They’re just lying on the side of the road, » the caller told the emergency operator.

A memorial now stands where the teenager’s bodies were discovered. A wooden cross was erected and locals placed dowers and other memorabilia at the site in the days that followed.

Woods, a freshman at Cedar Ridge High School, and Clark, a junior at East Alamance High School, were friends with each other, according to their families. However, it is unclear how they ended up being shot together under power lines.

The Orange County Sheriff’s Office announced that it has identified a 17-year-old suspect wanted on two counts of first-degree murder.

The bureau has remained tight-lipped on the details because the suspect is a minor, therefore protected by state laws.
