Michael Howell, owner of Dilworth Insurance Agency in Charlotte, has been charged in the death of North Carolina Department of Insurance (NCDOI) investigator Sallie Rohrbach.
Rohrbach was auditing Howell’s agency, which had been dropped by GMAC Insurance for not promptly remitting premiums. In an e-mail to her supervisor, Rohrbach wrote that Howell had “no negative balances, but he is floating money.”
Rohrbach’s husband reported her missing May 16. On May 20, her body was found in a wooded area in Fort Mill, S.C., about 25 miles from Howell’s agency. Police found her car in the parking lot of a fast-food restaurant less than a mile from his office.
Chrissy Pearson, a NCDOI spokeswoman, said Rohrbach’s death has hit the agency hard. “She was going down there for a very routine sort of examination,” Pearson said. “There was nothing whatsoever to give us any indication that she would be in any danger. She did know that if at any point she felt uncomfortable, she could call in our law enforcement guys, and she has done that in the past.”
