Probable Cause Affidavit Released in Death of Mount Holly's Stacy Hunsucker
A probable cause affidavit signed by a Special Agent of the North Carolina Department of Insurance details a portion of the investigation into the death of Stacy Hunsucker. Police are accusing Joshua Hunsucker of poisoning Stacy Hunsucker in September of 2018.
The affidavit states that Hunsucker gave at least 4 different versions of what he was doing before he found his wife's body in September 2018. Hunsucker did not allow an autopsy of his wife's body, even though she was an organ donor. Hunsucker also applied for his wife's $250,000 life insurance benefits two days after she died.
After Suzie Robinson, Stacy Hunsucker's mom, sent a referral to the North Carolina Department of Insurance, an element found in eye drops and nasal spray was found in Stacy's blood sample. This element is known to cause seizures and cardiac arrest if ingested orally.
It was ruled in March court hearing that Joshua Hunsucker will not face the death penalty.
