The Murder of Paitin Fields


April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month!

Early in the morning of November 13th, 2017, a child was brought into the Emergency Room at the small Pender County Hospital. It was five year old Paitin Fields, and the Emergency room staff was told that she had been found unresponsive.


It didn’t take long for staff to deduce they were not equipped to handle Paitin’s injuries, so after stabilizing her as best as they could, they sent her to nearby New Hanover Regional Medical Center, which is located in the historic city of Wilmington NC, and is about a 35 minute drive.

After sending little Paitin on her way, a nurse called the Pender County Sheriff’s Office. The time was 5:43 AM.

“I have a five year old that was brought in who is now intubated and headed to New Hanover, with what strongly appears to be strangulation marks on her neck.”

Little Paitin never regained consciousness, and she died on Wednesday, November 15th, 2017.

If you are a witness to any sort of child abuse, or if a child confides in you that they are being abused… or if you yourself are being abused, please don’t be afraid to report it. Authorities can’t do anything about it if they don’t know about it. You can call 911 if it’s an emergency, and if it isn’t, call the police. They can create a preliminary report and notify the appropriate agency.

If you’d like someone to talk to about any issues related to child abuse, there is help at the National Child Abuse Hotline. 1-800 422-4453.

If you are being abused, you have options. First make sure you are not being monitored. If you can safely call, dial the National domestic violence hotline at 800-799-7233. To chat, online, go to www.thehotline.org. Please don’t forget, the National Domestic Violence hotline is not just for women. It’s for anyone facing issues associated with domestic violence!

If you are looking for resources, that phone number and website can also help you, even by providing information on what services are available in your locality.

Also, we have a couple of BOLOs this week:

Michael A Cornish. He had an open warrant out on him for child abuse with serious bodily injury on a child under the age of 12. He’s on the run, and authorities think he may be in New Hanover County, NC. He was last known to have been driving a green 1994 Saturn SL2 with the license place number EBD7861.


Anyone with information should call Goldsboro police at 919-705-6572 or Crime Stoppers at 919-735-2255.

William “bill” Roegner and his lady friend, Penny Holt, out of Putnam County WV. Penny Holt is only wanted for questioning in Roegner’s case.  Now he is facing a LOT of charges related to the sexual abuse of three children over the course of several years.


Now the cops are saying this guy is armed and dangerous, and he has already made threats to law enforcement. As a matter of fact, he should know how dangerous that is since he is a former law enforcement officer himself. If you have any information on this case, you are asked to contact troopers with the West Virginia State Police at 304-824-3101.  You are advised to not approach Roegner.
