FAIRMONT — Leaders of the Lumbee Tribe and the Fairmont community are mourning the death of Terry Hunt, a longtime law enforcement officer in Robeson County who died this weekend in Kenya while on tribal business.

Hunt, who served previously as Fairmont’s chief of police and on the Lumbee Tribal Council, was in the African nation in his capacity as president of Lumbee Tribe Enterprises LLC. He died Sunday after being hospitalized for an undisclosed illness. He and Ron Oxendine, chief operating officer of LTE, were in the country to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for a new contract the business had landed.
