By on June 6, 2010

The body of a Kill Devil Hills man was found early Monday morning after police received a call about a fight in the area of Oregon Avenue and N.C. 12.

Police identified the man as Brandon A. Presgraves, 24, of Kill Devil Hills. He had suffered wounds from what police described as a cutting instrument, and a knife was found near the body.

The exact cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner, police said in a statement.

Charged with second-degree murder was James E. Presson, who is also from Kill Devil Hills, police said. Presson voluntarily came forward as having been involved in the fight, according to the police statement.

Kill Devil Hills police Capt. Gene Johnson said there had apparently been an earlier altercation at Port O’ Call Restaurant.

Police received a call about the fight at around 1:25 a.m. Monday.

Police are asking for information from anyone who was at Port O’ Call Sunday night or Monday morning and had seen the two men together.

Call the Kill Devil Kills Police Department at (252) 449-5337 and ask for Det. M.K. Moye, who is leading the investigation.
