Ashley running back suspended after latest arrest

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Ashley High School’s football team won’t have its starting running back when the Screaming Eagles travel to South Brunswick tomorrow night.

Coach Mike Propst says senior Justin Foy is suspended indefinitely.

New Hanover County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Foy Friday for failing to appear in court on a misdemeanor.

The 18-year-old was charged earlier this year with larceny and resisting an officer, according to court records, which also show outstanding charges from 2013 for possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of stolen goods.

FIRST ON 3: Autopsy provides few answers in death of Southport man

Thursday, September 25th, 2014

SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — New details tonight in the death of a Southport man whose body washed up on Bald Head Island after he went missing last winter.

Even after an autopsy, it’s still unclear how Adam Muhammad, 22, died.

Muhammad was last seen walking from his job at a Southport restaurant on Valentine’s Day and reported missing two days later.

Crews searched for days for him, but he would not be found until his body washed up on a Bald Head Island beach March 17.

According to an autopsy report released today, his body had only socks on it when it was found. The medical examiner said he could find no injuries or other issues that explain Muhammad’s death, so the ME ruled Muhammad’s death “undetermined.”

Southport Police Chief Jerry Dove says his detectives are still working on the case, but they do not have any new leads.
