Interesting piece in today's News and Observer about local and unsolved homicides; Janet Abaroa, Michelle Young, Rose Wynn, and Nancy Cooper:

In each case, authorities have not treated the crime as random violence. While investigators have looked closely at the victims' husbands – Raven Abaroa, Jason Young, Rev. Sam Wynn and Brad Cooper – they have not made any arrests or officially named any suspects...
Yes, there can be challenges to these types of cases, but I don't think investigators should get a pass merely because a case is difficult.  Local scuttlebutt says there is something wrong with the investigative methodology when so many of these types of cases remain unsolved in North Carolina.

NC County’s local governments are singular entities, they do not work well together. Also, Sheriff’s are elected public officials who are very politically driven. Therefore, local law enforcement does not like dealing with outside law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI and SBI. Unfortunately, those are the agencies with the technology and knowledge to catch the criminals, so without collaboration nothing gets done.

NC News - I can tell you from my own experience that working with local police has never been difficult for me, but SBI ignores me. Still, I appreciate what cooperation I do get.
