Winston-Salem, NC -- A crime scene in Forsyth County involves local, state, and federal investigators.

Detectives are still investigating the death of the president of the Winston-Salem Hells Angels Motorcycle Club.

Someone found 48-year-old Dwight Alan Sluder's body inside his Baux (box) Mountain Road home just before 8:00 pm Wednesday night.

Sluder's death stirs questions about the motorcycle group.

The Hells Angels history is well documented in books and films.

The nearby library holds one such book about a true story into a criminal investigation into the Hells Angels.

Gilda Mendnehall knew about the group's reputation and was apprehensive when Dwight Sluder first moved in next door more than a decade ago.

"I didn't see a bad reputation here. All I saw was a kind person. Dwight was a nice person. He was a good neighbor. If we needed a hand with something he was always willing and able to help out with whatever we needed," explained Mendenhall. 

Investigators won't say if they have found the murder weapon or any other evidence.

They say they can't comment on any evidence they have found or taken out of the house.
