Boyfriend Person of Interest in Deadly Mt. Holly (NC) Fire

Detectives are now considering a deadly fire in Mount Holly a double-homicide investigation, reports wcnc.com.

Police called Monday’s fire on Ridgewood Court suspicious from the beginning. Wednesday, officials identified the victims as 17-year-old Treyvon Berry and 38-year-old Bridget Berry.

Investigators originally presumed Treyvon to be missing after the fire, possibly in the family’s green, 1995 Chevy Suburban. Police were looking for him but never named Treyvon as a suspect.

Police in Georgia found the missing Suburban Tuesday, driven by Bridget Berry’s boyfriend. Peter Rivers, 40, also lived at the home and is now considered a person on interest.

He is being held there on pending unrelated charges in that state.

“We are not going to speak to why he was in GA. That is part of our investigation. We won’t speak to what he may or may not have said, but we did have the opportunity to speak with him,” said Assistant Police Chief Joseph Ramey.

Police are asking the public if they have information on who may have been in and around the residence to come forward.
