Lawyer hired in UNC athletics probe gives briefing

Friday, June 20th, 2014

Associated Press

CHAPEL HILL, NC (AP) — A former federal prosecutor hired to investigate academic irregularities involving athletes at North Carolina says he will follow the evidence wherever it leads.

Ken Wainstein spoke Friday to the UNC Board of Governors. He was hired in February to determine the facts around the creation of “paper classes” in the African and Afro-American Studies department and the extent of their use by student athletes.

Wainstein’s appearance comes two weeks after former Tar Heel basketball star Rashad McCants claimed he played on the school’s 2005 national championship team despite not performing any academic work or attending classes. McCants’ allegations are the latest in a scandal that began as an offshoot of a 2010 NCAA investigation into the university’s football program.

Wainstein said he hopes to complete his report by the fall.

Police: Man’s body found on ground outside Wilmington apartment complex

Friday, June 20th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Police are investigating after they say a man’s body was found on the ground outside of a Wilmington apartment complex early this morning.

Wilmington Police say the body was discovered in front of Carolina Apartments in the 400 block of Market Street just before 7 a.m. That’s where they say the man’s body was lying in the street near the complex.

Police say the body is that of a white man in his 30s, who WPD spokeswoman Linda Rawley says appears to have injuries indicating some type of fall. Rawley says investigators are questioning people to find any information into what may have happened, but says they are not sure yet whether or not the man was a resident of the building where he was found.

Police will release the man’s identity once next of kin are notified. Stay with WWAY for more on this story as details come into our newsroom.
