Sheriff Candidates meet face-to-face, Brown take shots at Miller



Three men running for the seat of Onslow County Sheriff met face-to-face tonight in a Jacksonville Onslow Chambers of Commerce forum.

Incumbent Sheriff Hans Miller, Republican Candidate Boyd Brown and Republican Candidate Walter Scott all attended tonight’s forum to answer questions about teachers carrying guns in schools, community involvement, drug abuse, mental health as well as many other topics of importance voters.

Sitting from left to right were Walter Scott, Hans Miller, and Boyd Brown. Given their recent history, it is surprising that tonight did not end in a knock down, drag out fight between Miller and Brown. A few months ago, we published a Facebook message between Sheriff Hans Miller and another citizen, in which Miller allegedly told the citizen that Brown was a thief. Tonight during Brown’s opening statement, he brought up the fact that he was not a “thief” and he had proof of Hans Miller “lowdown tricks.”

Scott and Miller answered answered questions efficiently and adequately while Brown did not miss any opportunity to attack the Sheriff throughout the night to the point that the audience started whispering and looking at each other with different facial expressions.

Each candidate had two rebuttal cards, while Miller used both of his and Brown only one. During his rebuttal he accused the Onslow County Sheriff’s Department of spending a half of million dollars on uniforms.

“Why are we having to spend that kind of money just to go with green uniforms,”Brown said.

Each candidate made a closing statement to end the forum.

Walter Scott: “We need to work as a team with all ordinary organizations, I can’t do it by myself. We need to work together. We’ve got some fine employees at the sheriff’s office, absolutely outstanding. Am I going to do everything right? I’m going to try my best but I can assure you one thing, everybody that’s there will sill be there. We are there to serve the citizens of Onslow County and everyone that wear that badge will be accountable for what they do. We do serve the citizens of Onslow County and we’re going to do it professionally every way that we can.”

Boyd Brown:” I want to let the employees of the Onslow County Sheriff’s Office know, when I get there I will have a open door policy, not only for citizens but employees too. I will have your six. Everybody got to work as a team. We need action in the county.”

Hans Miller: We didn’t really get a chance to get Miller’s closing, but we caught the end. “More to come, thank you.”

Voting registration ends April 13 and primary elections are May 8.


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.
