Early Lynn Isner, Sr., 59, was arrested Sunday in Franklin and is being extradited to North Carolina. Isner is charged, along with his ex-girlfriend, with the murder of his son-in-law, Arwayne Singhal.
In a press release released Wednesday by the Onslow County, N.C. Sheriff’s Office, Singhal’s body was discovered in a grave in a remote pasture area in Richlands, N.C. He had been reported missing in March of 2014, and investigators suspected foul play. The trail ran cold in the ensuing three years, but recent information that came to light led detectives to the body’s location.
Detectives traveled to Franklin on Sunday to interview Isner, and ultimately made the arrest. According to the press release, in addition to Isner, authorities arrested Jacqueline Joan Hasley, 74, of Maysville, N.C. in connection with the murder.
Isner is charged with one open count of murder, and Hasley is charged with accessory after the fact to murder. She is currently being held on a $250,000.00 secured appearance bond.
