Body

New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies are investigating a body found off of Market Street. Investigators say a homeless man was dead for about two days before his body was found Tuesday night.

According to the sheriff’s office, the property owner allowed the man to stay in a shed behind two vacant homes near Market and Middle Sound Loop Road.

Authorities said the man was in his mid-sixties, and was often seen walking up and down that stretch of Market, but had not been seen in several days. That is when the owner checked on his property, and found the body.

“It doesn’t really appear to be foul play at this point, but obviously we’re going to have an investigation and its going to be pending at this point. There is possibly going to be an autopsy to figure out what actually happened,” said Sgt. Craig Bredenbeck of the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office.

The name of the victim is being withheld until deputies notify his family.

CHARLOTTE — Police in Charlotte are unraveling a home invasion and burglary that ended with a 15-year-old suspect shot to death on a nearby street.

The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday that police have not charged 76-year-old C.L. McClure in Marcus Fluker’s death.

Police say four teens entered McClure’s home Saturday. McClure was bound with duct tape and his wife held at gunpoint. The robbers left with some jewelry and a wallet.

McClure’s son said his father broke free and followed with his gun. Larry McClure says his father spotted a suspected robber he thought was armed and fired his pistol when the teen turned toward him.

Police say they didn’t find a gun from near Fluker’s body.
