Crime

The D squad: Some Harnett deputies bring harm, residents say

More than a dozen people describe incidents of abuse or harassment by Deputy Nicholas Kehagias or a few other deputies on D squad; several complained to authorities

Kehagias charged far more civilians in 2014 and 2015 with resisting a public officer than any other deputy in the sheriff’s office

Sheriff and district attorney had no protocol for detecting indications of excessive force

A decade later, John Bunting finds peace in his post-football life

Outside the 3,600-square-foot house John Bunting and his wife had built after he lost the only coaching job he ever really wanted, a breeze rustles the boats in the marina. The Intracoastal Waterway is quiet on a Wednesday afternoon. Inside, Bunting is walking up the stairs, past framed pictures of a lifetime in football – there he is at North Carolina, and with the Philadelphia Eagles; there’s when he snapped his arm landing on Calvin Hill.He’s being inducted on Sunday into the Greater Wilmington Sports Hall of Fame. He’s expecting more than 90 people to come.

N&O investigation: Deadly Force

A warrantless entry, an innocent man shot dead. A squad of Harnett County deputies who spread fear south and west of the Cape Fear River. A homicide in jail, caught on tape, yet somehow kept under wraps. Who polices the sheriff's office?
