    Why no photo of the victim? And why no follow-up story about who the victim was? The title says the man was a "GOLDSBORO MAN"? Yet the comments seem to suggest the man had spent a great deal of time in FEDERAL PRISON. Was GOLDSBORO his hometown? OR his residence after prison? Was he on parole? Mentions WALNUT STREET was where he was shot, was he shot in the street or in a residence? The crimemap for the city/county shows an ICON for A MURDER but the icon doesn't work and the city/county law enforcement agencies have ZIP about the crime on their websites and CRIMESTOPPERS hasn't updated their site since 2009.

    Dude had a clean record for the last 11 years. DOC lists him as having been 34 years old. Hope he did the best he could with the time he's had in the last 10 years. Shame this happened if he turned his life around.
