KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (WITN) – A man who police said faked his suicide to avoid being arrested on multiple “peeping Tom” and indecent exposure charges has been taken into custody.

Kill Devil Hills police said that Jackie Price, 48, turned himself into Winston-Salem police on Sunday.

Price, of Kill Devil Hills, was reported missing on May 8th with police finding a suicide note at his home, but no body. Price’s location was narrowed down to the Winston-Salem area.

Kill Devil Hills police said that Winston-Salem officers did several door knock-and-talks, followed up on leads, and conducted overnight surveillance in the places it’s believed Price was hiding.

He’s being held on a $405,000 bond.

Kill Devil Hills detectives were in Winston-Salem this morning to interview Price.
