Richard Omar Knight, the principal of Dillard Academy Charter School in Goldsboro, N.C., was found in a wooded area with a self-inflicted injury, the Goldsboro Police Department said. The 35-year-old man’s body was discovered by a couple of hunters, The News & Observer reported.
“The hunters’ deer cameras recorded Mr. Knight in the wooded area at approximately 12:36 a.m. on Friday morning. He is alone in the video and appears to be carrying a blanket. Further investigation led to the discovery of Mr. Knight’s Chevrolet Cruze at a Petro Mart on Buckhorn Road. No foul play is suspected in connection with Mr. Knight’s death,” the Orange County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement.
An autopsy will be performed, authorities said.
