Body Found – More Facts
The search for Kiara came to a heartbreaking end on Monday when her body was located on Boykin Bridge Road near Clinton in Sampson County.
Investigators met with Kiara’s family Monday night with an update that preliminary findings indicated that the body found was Kiara.
The family posted online that they believed the body was Kiara’s and asked the public to keep the family in prayer during this difficult time.

Early in the search for Kiara, the family was hopeful when her husband, Carl Wiggins, who was wanted for questioning in the disappearance of his wife, was arrested in June following a multi-county car chase by a stolen vehicle.
But Wiggins refused to cooperate with the investigation into his wife’s disappearance, Sheriff Jimmy Thornton told WRAL, and the family’s hopes of finding leads to Kiara were dashed. Wiggins remains in jail on unrelated charges.
Kiara’s sister, Judy Murray, previously told Dateline that, while she had not given up hope, she feared that Kiara was no longer alive. She said that at that time, the family would simply like to “find her body and put her to rest.”
“They were watching. Girl, we will find you one way or another. One way or another, girl, we are watching.”
An investigation into Kiara’s death is underway and anyone with information about the case should contact the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 592-4141.
