The Catawba County Sheriff's Department determined that Wesley Bruner, 40, was killed from a gunshot wound. Investigators believe Henderson knew Bruner and was attempting to rob him. They believe the fire was set to cover up the homicide. The fire broke out Saturday at a home along Business 321, just north of Maiden. Firefighters found signs of a possible break-in and a container for flammable liquid inside the home. "We believe someone set the fire once they shot him,” Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid. “We know he did have a large amount of cash that he had come into, and we haven't been able to find that."
