For the murder of Tammy Sellers Holland in 2014, the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office has made an arrest.
Holland’s body was discovered stabbed to death on October 28, 2014, at her residence. She was in her fifties.
The deputies and the District Attorney’s Office evaluated the case after a long inquiry into the cold case. On January 26th, an arrest warrant was requested for 50-year-old Roy Lee White on charges of being an accessory to first-degree murder.
Around 11 o’clock on Tuesday night, deputies located White at the Econo Lodge on Brentwood Street in High Point and detained him there.
After being arrested, White was given a $60,000 bond and brought to the Randolph County Detention Center. As of last Wednesday, he had made his initial court appearance.
Florence Elizabeth Keene, who passed away in 2018, was identified as the murderer of Holland thanks to White’s help with the investigation. Holland’s neighbors and friends, a married couple named White and Keen, were questioned by police after the murder.
Three years and numerous detectives later, the arrest of White in connection with this case has finally paid off.
The inquiry revealed that the day Holland’s body was found, a neighbor who had been trying to get in touch with her went to her house after work to see how she was doing.
When Holland failed to answer her doorbell, the neighbor peered through the window, spotted her in the living room, and dialed 911.
The autopsy report provided by the NC Medical Examiner’s office indicates that Holland died as a result of several stab wounds. A murder verdict was issued in her case.
Holland had been employed by Elizabeth’s Pizza in Thomasville for 11 years before she passed away. After her passing, her coworkers recalled her as a loyal employee, a loyal friend, and a nice person.
