Wapanucka Man Found Dead in Home

8-15-05 - The Johnston County Sheriff says they're handling the death of a 21-year-old man as a homicide until they get the autopsy back.

Twenty-one-year-old Michael Foster was found dead in his Wapanucka home around 4 p.m. yesterday.

His employer stopped by to tell Foster they were starting work early on Monday.

He found him lying on the side of his bed, dead.

Foster had been at a party Saturday night.

Johnston County is interviewing partygoers who say there was an altercation and that foster may have had a few enemies.

Authorities say Johnston was only slightly drunk when he left the party.
