Man Arrested in Southwest Charlotte Murder of 17 Year-Old Girl

From The Charlotte Observer By David Perlmutt, Meghan Cooke and Celeste Smith, October 16, 2011

A Charlotte man was arrested early this morning and charged in the killing of Aerial Patterson, found Saturday in the yard of an unoccupied southwest Charlotte house.

Eddie Yannick Doh, 23 today, is in the Mecklenburg County Jail after Charlotte-Mecklenburg police charged him with Patterson’s murder. Doh also faces charges of armed robbery and possession of firearms by felon, police said.

Patterson, 17, was found dead early Saturday in the yard at 15129 Arbroath Ct., just off Steele Creek Road, hours after a friend dropped her off there to meet someone.

When, police arrived about 3:45 a.m., they found Patterson suffering from fatal injuries. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Police have not said how she was killed.

A friend had dropped Patterson off at the home earlier to meet an unknown person “through a pre-arrangement,” police said. When the friend returned to pick up Patterson, she found her with the injuries in the yard. Police didn’t elaborate on the nature of the meeting.

The friend is cooperating with police.

Anyone with information about Patterson’s death should call police 704-432-TIPS or Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600.
