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.
