Sources close to the Mariah woods investigation and the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office have come forward to News In Onslow stating that Kristy Kay Hunter – Mom of slain tot Mariah Woods – will face no charges stemming from her untimely childhood death.

Police have charged live-in boyfriend, Earl Kimrey, with murder. District attorney, Ernie Lee, later announced plans to seek the death penalty.

3 year old Mariah Woods, a disabled child with muscular dystrophy, was reported missing on 27 November 2017 and eventually found in the bottom of Holland Shelter Creek five days later on 2 December 2017. She was discovered after a massive and unprecedented search by a Pender County dive team.

Earl Kimrey was charged with first-degree murder after deputies of the OCSO and the FBI analyzed the autopsy and toxicology results and found that Mariah died of chloroform poisoning.

Chloroform, an otherwise obsolete chemical, is used in the manufacture of illicit methamphetamine – illegal drugs that Earl Kimrey is known to be involved in.

Two days ago we released 911 audio recordings of Earl, in an obvious drug-induced stupor, incoherently pleading for help from 911 operators. The public initially expected that Kristy Hunter had made the call, but with law enforcement seeking court-sealing of the records, no one knew that she’d avoided doing so until this week.

Kimrey was also accused of abhorrent sexual misconduct – details of which we will leave out – with both Mariah and her two minor siblings. These allegations were reported to the Department of Social Services and Onslow County Courts and seem to have been ignored.

Recent revelations raise substantial questions. Among those asked of News In Onslow:

– Why didn’t Kristy call 911 about her own child?

– Why did Kristy allow her children to be exposed to illicit meth labs and repeated sexual abuse?

– How did Kristy fool the courts and keep the biological father, Alex Woods, from having contact with his children?

– How does Kristy do all this and walk Scott-free???

Public outcry is at an all time high in Onslow with residents calling for court reform, DSS reform, and the ousting of the bumbling and incompetent Sheriff Hans Miller; an elected official with a documented history of failing to act upon knowledge of child rape in the case of Caitlyn Ridgeway.

Will Mariah Woods ever see justice in Onslow County?


Man who killed Sheldon Prawl in 2013 will spend nearly 50 years in prison



“Sheldon tried to kill my sister,” Carleton Davis said to Prawl’s mother Beverly Daley as she read her impact statement to the court. 

“I have not only lost one child but two children, and if it was up to me, Davis and Cheri would receive the death penalty,” Daley said.

It took two weeks of trial and nearly 6 hours total of deliberation for a jury to convict 38-year-old Carleton Davis in the death of Sheldon Prawl. 

Today, Carleton Davis, 38, was found guilty of second-degree murder and felony concealment of death. Judge Imelda Pate told Davis that he would spend nearly 50 years in prison. He was sentenced to serve a total of 38-to-48 years in prison. Davis killed Sheldon Prawl in 2013 and put his remains in two-cement filled foot lockers outside a house in Detroit, Michigan. Police later found Prawl’s body after a neighbor reported a bad odor coming from the backyard. 

Davis sister Cheri Davis, has also been charged in the case. She was the girlfriend of Prawl. She has been charged with felony destruction of bodily remains to conceal a death, felony conspiracy, felony accessory after the fact, and felony common law obstruction of justice and she is out of jail on bond. 

Here’s what Carleton Davis had to say to the court before his sentencing BELOW:

Man accused of killing Sheldon Prawl in 2013 won’t testify, evidence is circumstantial



A man accused of killing Sheldon Prawl in 2013 will not testify in his murder trial.

Carleton Davis, 38, of Georgia, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 23-year-old Sheldon Prawl.

In court, Assistant District Attorney Mike Maultsby said that Prawl was last seen on Halloween in 2013 and, shortly thereafter, 35-year-old Cheri Lee Davis, Carleton Davis‘ sister, reported him missing. Prawl’s body was found in Detroit, Michigan dismembered in two separate containers filled with cement on May 30, 2014.

In the States closing argument Wednesday afternoon, they spoke about the relationship between Davis and Richard Jackson, who lived next door to the home Prawl’s body was found. Jackson and Davis were pulled over in Brunswick County in 2014 on unrelated drug and gun charges.

“The case is a circumstantial evidence case. The circumstances, in this case, proves without a reasonable doubt that the defendant killed Sheldon Pawl,” Maultsby told the jury. 

Maultsby talked about how Prawl and his mother Beverly Daley spoke every other day and on October 31, 2013, she received a text message from Prawl’s phone saying “Travel, talk to you soon.” Davis said in her testimony that she gave it a few days before she contacted Cherri Davis, Prawl’s girlfriend on November 2, begging her to make a report to the police about her son missing. 

In the state’s closing argument, Maultsby told the jury that “Carleton Davis had a motive to end the life of Sheldon Prawl because he did not like what he did to his sister.” It took the state 58 minutes to argue their closing to the jury and the defense will argue their closing at 1:30 PM Wednesday afternoon.

District Attorney Earnie Lee receives case about officer who used ‘excessive force’ against Anthony Wall in Warsaw



“No Justice, No Peace” is what Onslow County District Attorney Earnie Lee will hear if he does not indict the officer who ‘excessively with force’ arrested Anthony Wall in Warsaw, North Carolina on May 4, 2018.

Anthony Wall, 22, of Fayetteville was at Waffle House after taking his 16-year-old sister to prom in Warsaw, North Carolina when he was choked and slammed by Officer Frank Moss. It’s unknown why Officer Moss used such aggressive force against the 22-year-old, but I guess it’s better than the officer pulling out his gun and killing Wall.

Officer Moss has a history of abusing and terrorizing black families in Warsaw, North Carolina for years. If you look at how big Officer Moss is and look how small Anthony Wall is, there’s no way Moss couldn’t have subdued Wall without choking him. 

Officer Frank Moss

District Attorney Earnie Lee said on Tuesday that the investigation into whether Officer Moss used ‘excessive force’ or not is in his hands.

Lee said the report was received from N.C. State Bureau of Investigation regarding the controversial arrest of Anthony Wall. The evidence will be reviewed and a decision afterward.
