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.

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

At each…

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…

Donald Trump once again exhibited his extreme ignorance, irrationality and intransigence in contradicting the analysis of his three top intelligence chiefs before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Jan. 29. It's hard to imagine how pompous a person must be to think he knows more than his FBI…

Mr. Kammerer's fine article on the Jones-Lee House (in The Daily Reflector on Sunday) highlights the urgent need to save one of the few remaining architectural structures of historic and aesthetic value left in our poor city.

Years and years of willful destruction and bureaucratic neglect pushed by…

It's official. We just had the longest government shutdown in history over nothing.

Democrats have agreed to fund $1.375 billion for 55 miles of physical barrier along the border, which is only a little more than what Trump would have gotten under a continuing resolution that funded the government…

Title IX has been a positive thing except where men's programs have been canceled to create slots for women. You can call it Title IX "balance," but ECU has 11 women's sports and only nine for men. To create this disparity ECU added women's lacrosse. Last time I checked, the state of North Carolina…

From Lake Norman to the Outer Banks, boating has long been a cherished pastime for many families across North Carolina.

Yet while many are familiar with the personal benefits you experience during a day on the water, the important economic contributions of boating are lesser-known.

Recently Courtney Patterson, a state NAACP leader, told a Greenville audience that the gains made by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 are in jeopardy. He encouraged Americans to be vigilant in protecting these rights and to exercise the privilege of voting.

I am tired of Democratic presidential hopefuls and their clean energy nonsense. Windmills and solar panels are generally a waste of time and money. Windmills don’t turn when there is no wind and solar panels don’t work when there is no sun. In each case the energy generated is DC, for…

If the legislature adopts the Carolina Cares plan advocated by Rep. Greg Murphy, hundreds of thousands of people will still be showing up at our hospitals without coverage, giving the hospitals the excuse to pad what they charge the rest of us in order to pay for treatment for the uncovered.…
