Enfield Woman Concealed Mothers Dead Body for Months

The Enfield Police Department has charged Donna Sue Hudgins, 69, of Enfield with felony concealment of death. The case started when the Donna Sue Hudgins went to a funeral home to make funeral arrangements stating that her mother passed that morning but that she did not know where EMS had taken the body. The funeral home tried and also could not locate the deceased. The funeral home became concerned and contacted the Enfield Police Department. Chief Tyree Davis, Officer Jerry Shoemaker and Detective Teo Antunez Jr. responded to the mother’s residence and was able to make contact with Donna Hudgins who also resides at the residence. After speaking with the daughter officers entered the residence to do a welfare check and discovered a badly decomposed body in the home.

Detective Willie Murphy Jr. and Detective Teo Antunez Jr. led the investigation and found that the deceased was in the home for several months before the daughter notified family members of their mothers passing. Detectives interviewed Hudgins and learned that she did not report the death because she was curious and wanted to see the stages of death. After consulting with Halifax County Assistant District Attorney, charges were filed on Donna Hudgins for concealment of her 93 year old mother, Nellie Mae Hudgins death. Hudgins was arrested and issued a $5000.00 bond by Magistrate Christopher Kidd and is scheduled for court on November 7, 2018.

After consulting with the district attorneys office the Enfield Police Department will not be making any other statements regarding this case. If you have any questions or concerns you can contact the Halifax County District Attorney’s Office.
