Police knew slain pregnant teen might have been raped
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police knew for more than seven weeks that 15-year-old Tiffany Wright might have been the victim of statutory rape, but they didn't charge her alleged assailant until the pregnant teen was shot dead Monday.

Social workers reported to police on July 27 that Royce Mitchell might have sexually assaulted Tiffany, but police said they waited nearly four weeks to make any contact with Mitchell. A police official says a detective called Mitchell Aug. 20 and asked him to come in for an interview, but Mitchell declined.

Investigators never visited Mitchell or picked him up for questioning, but phoned him "multiple times," said Capt. Pete Davis, who heads the sexual assault unit.

Mitchell, 36, was charged Monday with statutory rape and taking indecent liberties with a child, and police said Tiffany was the victim of those crimes. Mitchell is also being questioned as a "person of interest" in Tiffany's homicide, police said.
