Two men found dead at North Topsail Beach Identified
Two men found dead at North Topsail Beach earlier this week were drug informants.
Christopher Stewart and Robert Shellhammer were working as confidential informants for local authorities, according to a law enforcement source.
The two men were found dead on the beach with stab wounds. A knife was found between them.
The two may have had a personal beef unrelated to their work as informants, according to a second source that also identified the men.
Shellhammer’s wife was at the scene at the time of the altercation. She has been interviewed by investigators.
