Two Former Salem Residents And Their Daughter Shot To Death In North Carolina

By Bruce Kropp, WJBD News

Two former Salem residents and their daughter have been murdered in Hendersonville, North Carolina.  51-year-old Richard Allen Tracy and 49-year-old Theresa Russell Tracy along with their 30-year-old daughter Carrie Tracy Warren where shot and killed outside their home early Wednesday night.   

Warren's estranged husband, Robert Warren III, was identified by witnesses as the suspect in the shootings.  He was located following a nearly three-hour manhunt dead from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.  

The Times-News of Hendersonville, North Carolina reported that Warren was supposed to appear in court June 4th on charges filed in February for allegedly making harassing calls and communicating threats. He also had a May 30th court date for failing to appear earlier on the charges.

The newspaper reported one neighbor told police she saw a car pull up to the Tracy home. The man allegedly got out and began firing the gun and said 'Do you want some more?' before firing three or four more shots. Police quickly sealed off the neighborhood following the triple homicide as they began the search for Warren and the car he was driving.  The car was found about a half hour later.  Warren's body was located about two hours later about 100 yards from his car.  

Richard Tracy is the son of Dick and Audrey Tracy of Salem.  His wife Theresa Russell Tracy is the daughter of Jerry and Bessie Russell of Salem.  Funeral services for Richard and Theresa Tracy are both pending at the Rogers-Atkins Funeral Home in Salem.  The funeral for their daughter, Carrie Tracy Warren, will be held at the Shepherd and Son Funeral Home in Hendersonville, North Carolina.
