Tragedy motivates couple to fight faceless enemy

LOUISBURG -- Heroin and opiates continue to be silent killers -- claiming about two Franklin County lives a week, generally under the radar, law enforcement officials said a year ago.
One of those lives belonged to Austin Quinn, a 24-year-old Bunn High graduate who died as the result of an overdose in November 2016.
His mother and father, Kathy and Robbie Quinn, say it's something they'll never forget.

MORE THAN HISTORIC HOMES
MORE THAN HISTORIC HOMES

This year's Franklin County Historic Homes Tour featured more than homes and churches as evidenced by this vintage piece of fire equipment and a buggy that were on display on the lawn of the Person Place.
