Search warrant reveals details in Davidson woman’s death

Channel 9 uncovered more details surrounding the suspicious death of a Davidson woman.
 
Police said they found Sarah Long dead with a gunshot wound to her head in her home in August.
 
According to police, a man told them he had a romantic relationship with the married woman and she "had cervical cancer and was suicidal."
 
But police said they spoke with Long's doctor and she never had cancer, according to a search warrant.
 
The Mooresville doctor said Long did have abnormal cells on her cervix but the condition was treatable.

 The doctor doubts Long misunderstood the conversation because she'd already been treated for the same issue in the past.
 
The man, who Channel 9 is not naming, told police three weeks prior to Long's death that he received documents stating he was the "primary beneficiary of 100 percent of her assets," amounting to nearly $940,000.
 
A medical examiner has questioned a lack of blood on Long's hand and noted where the gun ended up was in a "odd location."

Public discusses proposed tobacco ban

Members of the public will have a chance to voice their opinions on a proposed ban on tobacco at public parks and greenways in Mecklenburg County. It would be stricter than the state’s policy.

On Tuesday night the Mecklenburg County commissioners will hold a public hearing to get input on the proposed ban that would prohibit smoking at government buildings.

The ban would also prohibit using all tobacco including cigarettes and chewing tobacco at parks, county-owned golf courses and greenways.

Studies show tobacco use and secondhand smoke exposure are the leading preventable causes of illnesses.

County leaders say they want to minimize the harmful effects of secondhand smoke. Some commissioners have been critical of the move, saying it imposes too much on people’s health choices.

However, families Channel 9 talked to at Freedom Park said they would like the protection.

"I think that someone needs to step up and enforce rules that help the community," said Tara Moya-Mendez, a ban supporter.

Commissioners are expected to vote on the ban in two weeks.
