HILLSBOROUGH -- Orange County sheriff's investigators think five young men
abducted Joshua McCabe Bailey, 20, took him to the woods off Twisted Oak
Drive in Chapel Hill, dug a shallow grave and shot him in the head with a 9
mm pistol.
Bailey's family lost contact with him in July, and the sheriff issued at
Silver Alert on Aug. 20 because Bailey suffered from dementia or cognitive
impairment.

Authorities found his body Friday off Big Woods Road in Chatham County.

Two days before the body was found, investigators examined the crime scene
off Twisted Oak Drive and found trash bags that gave off the stench of
decomposing flesh, but they found no body. On Thursday, an informant told
Orange County Investigator Tim Horne that Bailey's body had been moved to a
burial site in Chatham County.

The sheriff's office has charged five young men with first-degree murder and
kidnapping: Brandon Hamilton Greene, 26, of Chapel Hill; Jack "Black Jack"
Johnson II, 19, of Chapel Hill; Ryan Ladar Davis Lee, 20, of Chapel Hill;
Jacob Alexander Maxwell, 18, of Chapel Hill; Brian Gregory Minton, 18, of
Chapel Hill.
