Rowan County Man Arrested for Killing His Father in 2018

A jury is now being selected in the trial of a Rowan County man accused of beating his father to death in April, 2018. Retired mill worker Eugene Chunn, 72, was found in his home in the 800 block of East Franklin Street in Salisbury. His son, Juan Chunn, 52, was arrested in Richmond County, Georgia, in early August, 2018. Chunn was being held on a fugitive warrant prior to his extradition back to North Carolina. Officers said at the time that there were “obvious signs of trauma” on the body of Eugene Chunn when it was found on the couch of his home. The autopsy appeared to back up that statement. “In my opinion, the cause of death in this case was due to multiple blunt trauma injuries of the head, chest, abdomen and extremities,” the Medical Examiner wrote in the official report. The autopsy states Chunn had multiple blunt force trauma injuries, including fractures and broken ribs and teeth.
