Local pastor beaten by husband



Rumors are swarming around Jacksonville concerning two local pastors in Jacksonville who were involved in a physical altercation with each other.

Michael Claiborne and Lisa Claiborne of New Rivers Ministries located at 475 Marine Blvd., Jacksonville, NC alleged altercation became physical after insiders say Michael Claiborne assaulted his wife Lisa, sending her to the hospital with multiple injuries.

The two “married” couples were at their Rock Creek home when Lisa approached Michael with questions about other women nudity pictures on his phone. Lisa, then allegedly said to Michael that he would not be who he is without her, also mentioning the materialistic things she has done for him. Insiders say Michael called Lisa a B*** saying “you ain’t done nothing for me but what a wife is supposed to do.” Lisa allegedly slapped Pastor Michael and that’s when Michael choked Lisa over their two-story home staircase, allegedly punched her in the face three times and then pushed her down the stairs which resulted in the pastor going to Onslow Memorial Hospital. Lisa’s arm was in a sling and neck in a brace due to her severe injuries at the hands of her husband, Michael.

Michael was invited by the New Rivers Ministries pastor, Lisa to preach at a service six years ago after she recently went through a divorce. During that time, Michael proposed to Lisa and she said yes.

In the early stages of the two marriage, Michael was accused of sleeping around with other women in their church. One lady, he slept with decided to purchase the church 500 chairs, after moving into their new church at 475 Marine Blvd. from 615 New Bridge Street in Jacksonville. By common law, Lisa and Michael are married, however, records to a valid marriage license cannot be found. According to Obnoxious Television, if Lisa were to marry Michael Claiborne legally, she and her business would be responsible for the close to six figures of back child support he owes.

The “Claiborne’s” have had several fall-outs with local churches in Jacksonville. The two pastors would preach that other local churches in the community were jealous of them and the things they were doing in the Jacksonville area such as hosting a fashion show, biker’s blessings, church revivals, and a Black Lives matter protest that some say failed as the years progressed.

It is being rumored that Lisa reported to Onslow Memorial Hospital ER that she fell down the staircase inside her home, to avoid Michael’s arrest for allegedly assaulting her.

Michael who has had several encounters with law enforcement recently was released on an $8,116.00 cash bond after being jailed for nearly 30 days for failing to pay child support ordered by a judge.

Michael’s vision as a “prophet of God” is to be mayor of Jacksonville in 2020 but citizens of Onslow County may have a second thought about that after Claiborne allegedly assaulted his “Nala.”

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.
