    ====================================================

    Speak for yourself. Personally, I'm not going to allow someone else's objectionable and/or criminal behavior make me less human and less a Christian.

    It's a shame that place closed. They used to have a pretty good soul food deli counter, iirc. I'm sure they got plenty of business w/ that location, too, right across from Hillside High School and w/ a car wash and an intersection right there.

    I suspose that people dont think that thieves would break into a store that was open for business. Why would you break into a store that was empty of merchandise etc.?

    What a slow way to go

    Really? In my last comment, all I said was that even if the man was homeless, B & E was not an option.

    There was something offensive about that?

    "Put another business there..." Maybe Mayor Bell will use his personal cash to make that happen. Wow.

    Strange Story

  • Obamacare is here Oct 17, 4:46 p.m.

    In a perfect world, he had a heart attack inside the duct and it was over in 30 seconds.

    Really, if this bozo was breaking in to ransack the place and got stuck...oh boy...crime does not pay would be an understatement...

    "Wonder why his family did not have it publicly missing?"

    Maybe they did. I expect they'll be comparing the remains to missing persons reports to see if there's a match.

  • Obamacare is here Oct 17, 1:27 p.m.

    devilish, for all we know he was an orphan.

    Wonder why his family did not have it publicly missing?

  • simplelogic Oct 17, 12:58 p.m.

    Bad way to go, but it's kinda hard to feel sorry for him...clearly he was somewhere he had no business being.

    Has it ever crossed that little brain that WRAL reports the information they are given from authorities. Perhaps they should make some stuff up to fulfill your needs? As for the authorities, perhaps the information given is all they have at the moment? Recess is over, go back to class.

    If you don't like WRAL, stop coming here and reading the stories. The incessant complaining is getting tiresome. - kikinc

    Thank you!

    "As usual, WRAL breaks a "new" story before other news agencies, with very little to absolutely no information."

    Every other news site I've read has the same amount of information. And given the fact that Hillside HS is right across the street, people could have thought that the police activity may have had something to do with the school or a student(s). Reading this, someone who thought that would know their thinking was wrong.

    If you don't like WRAL, stop coming here and reading the stories. The incessant complaining is getting tiresome.

  • HANS FOR PRESIDENT!!!!! JK Oct 17, 9:49 a.m.

    @dwr1964, how much info do you need if they just found him? What he looked like? What he smelled like? If that store had been closed for 9 months he could have been in there that long or longer. If that is the case, I would imagine other than saying a badly decomposed man's body was found would be about all they had right away. And if foul play was suspected (very possible since he was found in an A/C duct) the police might have good reason to withold info. Why don't you stop getting your news from WRAL if their reporting makes you so unhappy?

    Imagine how the man felt when he realized he was stuck and nobody was going to come to his aid. What you do in the dark will come to the light. This is how he'll be remembered.

  • Obamacare is here Oct 17, 8:51 a.m.

    This sounds like a story right out of CSI. I wonder how long the body has been there and if he got stuck in the duct work trying to rob the store.
