Erica Parsons investigation continues

The investigation into the death of Erica Lynn Parsons continues. According to a press release from the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office, the Erica’s remains are still with the N.C. Medical Examiner.

The Sheriff’s Office anticipates that the remains will not be released for at least two or three months as this portion of the investigation continues. Once a complete picture of all evidence is obtained, the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office investigators will review the findings with the Rowan County District Attorney’s Office.

“The response and support from the community has been tremendous,” the release reads. “All of the funeral service expenses for Erica have been paid for.”

Donations are still being collected by Prevent Child Abuse Rowan in honor of Erica. This organization partners with Sheriff’s Office investigators to assist in the investigation of many cases involving child victims.

Information about Erica’s funeral service will be sent out once Erica’s remains have been released and a date for her funeral service has been determined.

“This is an ongoing investigation and information about the finding of this case won’t be released publicly until this case can be brought to court,” the release reads.

Donations can be made to the Erica’s Angel at Prevent Child Abuse Rowan, 130 Woodson St., Salisbury N.C., 28144.
