The Assassination of Hope

Record #:
Julian Pierce’s murder has intensified the fear, suspicion and confusion already reigning in a racially troubled Robeson County. Pierce wanted better representation for minorities, and was running strong to become the first Native American to sit on North Carolina’s Superior Court bench. Some believe Pierce’s murder was a political assassination, but law enforcement say he was killed by his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend.
