The Buncombe County Sheriff's Office on Monday released the 911 call associated with the homicide investigation on Brinwood Road in Weaverville.

Kayla Dezaray Hensley, 18, was found dead Saturday night from severe lacerations from a knife. Hensley was found at the bottom of Brinwood Drive.

"Somebody just knocked on my door, and said someone killed his sister that lives above us up here," the 911 caller told dispatchers.

When the dispatcher asked if the caller knew who the person was that knocked on his door, the caller responded, "I have no idea. He's got blood all over him."

Later in the phone call, the caller said the person who came to his door claimed to be getting away from the person who killed his sister.

"For safety's sake, don't let him in the house," the dispatcher advised the caller before hanging up.

Hensley's brother, a juvenile, has been charged with first-degree murder and is in the custody of the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, Juvenile Justice.

A co-worker at Urban Outfitters said Hensley was hearing-impaired and a wonderful young girl.

"Kayla was always smiling at work. Her smile could make even a bad day good. She was like a ray of sunshine," Misty Gossman said.

A makeshift memorial has been created on the hood of a car outside her home.

No one answered the door when we knocked.
