- Curt Autry NBC 12: In his obituary tomorrow in the paper, his name will read Carter Northington, but all of my FB
In his obituary tomorrow in the paper, his name will read Carter Northington, but all of my FB friends in Dinwiddie, Colonial Heights and Petersburg knew him as the CAN MAN. 70 years old and frail, he was beaten and left to die in someone's front yard. He was called the "Can-Man" because Carter was well known for collecting soda cans to help supplement his small social security check. We're following leads with police - it's one of our top stories at 11.

Only cowards beat up elderly people.

[seirhpmuh yma] - I have worked at Food Lion for many years...I worked at this one in Dinwiddie for a couple of years...and have shopped their frequently after transferring to another store...anyway...this man walked around every day...didn't ask for anything...he was a "staple" if you will, at the store and surrounding areas. If you spoke to him..he would nod his head, and go about his business of collecting cans. Can't imagine what his last minutes of consciousness was like...I wish someone would have walked up on this happening. But when this sissy gets caught, if the best he can do is beat up an old man with a bag of cans,then he probably won't fair too well in jail. That would be the best part of this story if it comes true.
[neerg yma] - I have never met him. But it this is so upsetting. With an aging parent who's on a fixed income, it's a shame that he had supplement his income with collecting soda cans and heart breaking that his life was cut short by an evil bastard.
