RALEIGH — North Carolina public officials are pushing the message that there are services available to prevent borrowers from losing their home in foreclosure.

Attorney General Roy Cooper and deputy state banking commissioner Mark Pearce hold a news conference on Tuesday as consumers discuss their experiences finding the help they needed.

Gov. Beverly Perdue’s office said nearly 40,000 North Carolina homes have gone into foreclosure so far this year.

The Center for Responsible Lending said more than 2 million North Carolina homeowners will see their property values decline over the next three years because of foreclosures in their
neighborhood.

Foreclosures also hurt bankers, who lose about 40 percent of the loan value.

A Leland teenager is charged with obstruction of justice after deputies say he drove around town with a dead body in his car.

Nineteen-year-old Eric Henry is now free on bond. Deputies say his friend, 23-year-old John Ferguson likely overdosed, and was laying in the front seat of Henry’s car while Henry drove around for a couple of hours. He even stopped at a friend’s house.

A witness eventually called 911, and authorities caught up with Henry at his grandfather’s house.
