Suspicious Package On ECU Campus Oct 14, 2005 Jennifer Coates WNCT-TV9
Police were called to campus around 11:30 this afternoon, near the art building. ECU Police tell Nine on Your Side a construction worker left a bookbag full of copper pipes near a construction site. The Cherry Point Bomb Squad was called in. They detonated the six pipes. Four buildings were evacuated during the scare.
While nearby.... Funeral services were held Thursday (10/13/05) for 26-year-old Yahya Albraidi. He's the man shot and killed during the armed robbery of the Kash and Karry convenience store in Grifton, Monday night.
Family and friends gathered in Rocky Mount for an Islamic prayer service, and burial of their loved one. A spokesman for the family says the family mourns their loss, and calls the killing senseless.
Albraidi's wife and children currently live in Yemen, and were unable to attend the burial.

Kinston Police have three suspects in custody, all charged in connection with the murder of a Grifton Kash and Karry clerk. 20 - year-old David Green, 22 - year - old James Hill and 20 - year -old Jeffrey Hill were arrested last night. One of the three used to work at the store. Pitt County detectives say all three face murder charges and armed robbery with a weapon, but more charges are likely. We'll have much more on this developing story.
Thought you might be interested in this. I'm not making any calls on it, just putting it up...
11:30 in the afternoon? Huh?
Nothing to see here...
Thank you for that ping.
Rocky Mount???? There's muslims in Rocky Mount???? Never thought I see the day when that happened.
Thank you very much for the ping freema. I'll look for more reports on this one. It's rather vague and as someone pointed out the writer made a little mistake on the time. (o: Will post here if I find some.
You're welcome. May very well be nothing to see here...but it's certainly strange, in light of OU and Georgia Tech, isn't it.
I've been trying to find info on the Greenville PD bomb squad, no luck, because I found it interesting that Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point was utilized.
This was allegedly a construction worker who left a backpack with 6 pipes. Weird.
I'm glad you caught that about the Marine Corps bomb squad being used. I don't know much about Greenville so maybe they don't have a local PD bomb squad? I'll admit that what you've pointed out about the squad used makes it even more interesting - in my eyes, and with my limited knowledge.
I've set up a few google alerts, so I'll try to stay on top of this story, too... Absolutely nothing in the media about this other than these 2 TV stations - at least not yet. We'll see if any papers pick it up with the morning's editions. It's not being covered by the AP at this point though...
And some poor guy getting blown away in a convenience store robbery has something do with your post, how?
Sorry. The store at which the Yemeni man was killed is reported as being in Grifton, which it is. But it actually has an Ayden address.
A bomb exploded in a public place in the US by the Marine Corps/Department of the Navy a couple days after a dead Yemeni is reported in the town Ayden (Aden) somehow made me think of some poor guy getting dumped overboard a boat.
Like I said, perhaps nothing to see, perhaps it's all coincidental.
Sorry, again. Ayden, Grifton, and Greenville are all in Pitt County. (Rocky Mount is just a bit northwest.)
Gee, does a single day go by anymore without a suspicious package being found on a campus somewhere?
Elizabeth City University?
East Carolina University
When did things become so damn complicated?
It is easier to still up propaganda and controvercy that way.
Then you discredit it as never happening.
