Carter death being investigated
Cocke County authorities say they are investigating the February 12 death of a Cosby man who reportedly had been struck by a car several days earlier. Deputy Michael Shelton on Friday reported that he had responded to the Michael Carter home on Trail Hollow Road after being contacted by a friend of Carter's, Matthew Weeks. Weeks said he hadn't been able to contact Carter in several days which was very unusual. Officers forced their way into the Carter home to find the 74 year-old deceased man in a recliner. Weeks reported that a week earlier Carter was in the parking lot of Lois' Kitchen when a young lady ran over Carter's feet. After the incident, the female reportedly exited her car crying. Carter reportedly told the woman not to worry about it, he would be fine. The injured man reportedly did not contact the police after the incident. When found, Officer Shelton says both feet of the victim were black with "leakage from both feet." Cocke County Detective Zach Shelton is investigating the case.
