SBI, police investigate death of suspect in Durham

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) – The State Bureau of Investigation is joining law enforcement officials in Durham following the death of a teenager inside of a patrol car.

A statement from the Durham Police Department said an officer was taking 17-year-old Jesus Huerta to headquarters Tuesday morning to pick up a warrant charging him with second-degree trespassing.

Police said Huerta was in the back seat of the patrol car when there was a loud noise as the patrol car reached headquarters. The officer jumped from the car, which rolled into a van.

Officer Samuel Duncan has been placed on administrative leave with pay pending the investigation. Duncan joined the force in July 2012.

Experience of NC water fund chief raises questions

Wednesday, November 20th, 2013

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Environmentalists are expressing concern that a Republican appointee named to oversee North Carolina’s Clean Water Management Trust Fund doesn’t meet the legally required qualifications for the job.

Bryan Gossage began work Nov. 5 as director of the state’s Office of Land and Water Stewardship, making $78,000 a year.

The taxpayer-supported fund buys environmentally sensitive land for conservation and supports other clean water initiatives. State law requires its director to have “experience and training in conservation, protection, and management of surface water resources.”

Gossage has a bachelor’s degree in sociology and has worked in marketing and public relations.

Department of Environment and Natural Resources spokesman Drew Elliot said Gossage is qualified because he served six years as a town councilman in Apex, which included oversight of a municipal water treatment plant.
