Official: Fayetteville man left in closet for 2 days before strangled, burned

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) – Authorities say a 49-year-old Fayetteville man was beaten, tied up, and was left in a closet for as long as two days before he was strangled with a belt.

Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office lawyer Ronnie Mitchell told The Fayetteville Observer that the three people involved then put William Foster’s body in a small storage building and set it on fire.

Foster’s body was found June 23. One of the three suspects in the case had a first appearance in court Thursday where more details about the killing were released.
