Investigators await Hewett autopsy results
7/15/14–Officials with the State Bureau of Investigation are waiting for autopsy results on former Brunswick County Sheriff Ron Hewett.
They say they need those results before making any further comment about Hewett’s death last weekend.

He was being held there on a federal retainer for weapons charges.
There are unconfirmed reports that a stun gun was used on Hewett—but state officials won’t comment.
