Carteret Co. Man Found Dead In Trash Can

An Eastern Carolina man is dead after authorities say his body was found in a trash container along a West Virginia interstate Monday.

Cabell County authorities today say Andrew Mulvany, Jr.'s body was in an industrial trash container along I-64 outside of Huntington.

Sheriff Tom McComas says the container had blood on it, and was duct taped shut. It was found about 10-30 feet off the road.

West Virginia authorities are working with the Carteret County Sheriff's Office on the case. Mulvany's last known address was at the Hostess House in Newport. McComas says they are working with authorities here in trying to determine whether Mulvany was murdered in Carteret County or in West Virginia.

Deputies tell WITN News that West Virginia authorities have contacted them about a person of interest in the case who lives in Carteret County.

The 62-year-old Mulvany was last in the Carteret County jail in 2007. The Department of Correction web site says he was arrested in 2004 for DWI and in 2001 for communicating threats.

    V, my prayers and thoughts goes out to you on the loss of your brother. The thing that I do not understand about this article is that it says that the last time he was seen was in the carteret county jail in 2007. It never states if he released from jail and then never seen again so I am really wondering how he went from last being seen in the jail to be in a trash can in another state. I hope that they find who did this horrible crime and that they pay for what they did.

    To V, I feel for you there man. That's hurtful. That was not the way to go. That deputy should have not acted the way he did then and should. I have never seen a Carteret County deputy that I ever spoke with as many times as I have been down in Atlantic Beach, so I could not say anything about the rest of them. I have a bad feeling that this case will probably never be solved, considering how mysterious his death is and how he endeed up all the way mear Huntington from Carteret County, but lets hope to find the killers and make them suffer.

    To Geez.. No, there is not a good way of telling someone they have lost a loved one but there is a way of doing it without being rude or hateful about it. I believe that V was trying to point out that the person who told him/her was not nice about it.

    To "V" - I'm so very sorry that you have lost your brother. Is there really any way to tell a person that he/she has lost a loved one w/o making it a painful situation??
