I see the 10th Street connector is nearing completion. Another three years to paint the lines and we will be on our way,...

Mother seeks answers in death


Saturday, June 30, 2018

It's been one month since my son’s body was found burning in storage shed. It has not been determined who, why and how they did it. I feel as though it's been swept under the rug.

I have not heard anything from the 26th of May until the 26th of June about what happened. It was as though he was an animal burning. No one called the fire department, no one knows anything, and ain't no way a fire at the magnitude was not seen nor heard that no one had in their mind to call any type of rescue.

I'm asking for help from anybody who can bring me closure and justice. He was a human and his life did matter. He left behind a son who requires special care and is only 7 years old. How is he going to understand what happened to his father, why he's not seeing his father. What will happened to this little boy? Does he suffer for the lack of somebody else's knowledge?

I don't understand why no one would tell what they seen or what happened to give this young gun a piece of mind as well as myself. It's not easy living day by day knowing that your child has lost his life and no one cares what happened. Life is literally stolen away from him — one that he was looking forward to being there for his son and his son looking forward to him being there for his father. Now he don't get that chance or opportunity anymore.

You would not want this to happen to one of your loved ones, so please come forth and to bring peace to bring closure, to bring justice to this hateful crime. His death was not an accident. He was deliberately murdered.

Note: Firefighters found the body of Bryan Carr, 34, about 2:30 p.m. on June 26 after extinguishing a fire at 3701 Reggie Court. The state Medical Examiner’s office ruled he died from smoke inhalation and thermal burns. The Pitt County Sheriff’s Office has said foul play is not suspected.

I thank The Reflector for Tom Campbell's piece in the July 7 edition, "Civic Clubs Offer Path to Community Pride."

Indeed they do. And I can speak from experience since I joined Kiwanis Club of Greenville eight years ago and have felt rewarded many fold. A woman I was courting and later married was…

I would like to thank you for the July 13th editorial, “Congress unwilling to address federal spending.” It accurately points out the dangerous fiscal path down which our country is headed.

As the editorial notes, within 10 years the federal government will annually spend more on…

Brett Kavanaugh is the wrong choice to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy on the Supreme Court. If he is confirmed to the Supreme Court, everything that we hold dear as a nation will be at stake.

From a protecting a woman’s right to choose to dismantling the Affordable Care Act, Kavanaugh could…

The recent article about State Treasurer Dale Folwell and the ECU Physicians-Vidant Health merger perplexes me.

I’m not a health care professional, business executive or attorney— just a North Carolina taxpayer. So maybe I’m dense or ill informed. But why did the article say…

A president under investigation for colluding with a foreign power (and known enemy of the United States) should not be allowed to appoint Supreme Court justices.

When that president picks a nominee who has stated that sitting president should not be subject to indictment nor subjected to civil…

From time to time the idea of a pedestrian bridge across the Tar River to River Park North is mentioned. For example, a Reflector article in 2016 estimated the price of such a bridge at $7 million-$20 million dollars! That price tag scares many citizens off. That's a shame because River Park North…

I have a theory that a couple of the daily Bless Your Heart contributors are the same Looney Tunes that respond on reflector.com. I can’t be sure because they hide under anonymity. For example is the BYH that there was no federal law that required or suggested family separation before…

There is a lot of misinformation regarding single-payer health plans, and Albert Hunt’s column in the Sunday Daily Reflector did nothing to clear the air. His remarks regarding the health care system were both inaccurate and off the mark. Hunt referred to the proposed single-payer system as…

Amid the headlines of migrant children being separated from their parents and guardians, there is the stark reality of human beings wrenched from each other. When it is your neighbor, co-worker, or fellow church member, then it becomes “up close and personal.” Maybe that’s…

I just saw Walter B. Jones’ Facebook post congratulating himself for participating in Kinston's naturalization ceremony. He was very quick to stress how proud he was of people going "through the legal process" of becoming a citizen.

So my question for him, and for my other representatives:…
