Deputies with the assistance of the North Carolina Marine Patrol were able to recover the .357 caliber revolver reportedly used in the homicide, from the water near the Swansboro-Cedar Point Bridge. Detectives believe a recent family dispute involving finances is the motive for the crime.

Harvey was charged with one open count of murder and was placed in the Carteret County Jail under no bond. Harvey is scheduled for her first court appearance on Monday, 04/09/2018, in Carteret County District Court.
