James McCandless Killed in Pink Hill NC Accident

A gentleman named James McCandless was tragically killed on Thursday afternoon when he was hit by a car while walking along NC Highway 11 near Pink Hill, North Carolina.

According to available information, Mr. McCandless was a resident of an assisted living facility but was out walking in the road when he was hit by a southbound car.  The assisted living facility was less than a mile from the site of the accident.  Under these circumstances, we would have some questions as to why Mr. McCandless was away from the assisted living facility and whether he should have been supervised at the time of the wreck.

Mr. McCandless was 52 years old at the time of this accident and reports indicate he was from Jacksonville, North Carolina.

Franklin Manor Assisted Living Facility Death Raises Questions For Widow

The Raleigh News & Observer published a very interesting story today about a tragic death at the Franklin Manor Assisted Living facility in Youngsville, North Carolina.  The facility, which touts itself as a facility specializing in the care of individuals suffering from memory problems, was the home of Larry Rozar until September 3, 2014.  On that day, his roommate at the facility violently attacked him and the injuries were so bad that he passed away two weeks later.  The roommate was not charged with any crime – apparently because he suffers from dementia.

Now, the family of Mr. Rozar has apparently had virtually no response from anyone regarding what happened to Larry.  As noted in the well-written article, this situation certainly deserves some investigation.  Particularly of concern is what responsibility the staff at Franklin Manor had to supervisor and ensure the safety of its residents.  Hopefully the family of Mr. Rozar will eventually find answers to their questions.
