The First Casualty?

Record #:
Internationalist Bookstore owner and Triangle area activist Bob Sheldon was recently murdered. Over 400 people attended his viewing and told of his impact on the community. His murder has not been solved and the State Board of Investigation is assisting with the case. Local activists speculate if Sheldon was killed in opposition to the Persian Gulf War. The war is less than a day old and Sheldon was a peace activist and had experienced opposition to his beliefs.
