  • A North Carolina hospital network is referring transgender psychiatric patients to treatment facilities that do not align with their gender identities. Though UNC Hospitals' policy discourages the practice, administrators say a massive bed shortage is forcing them to make tough decisions. A lack of funding and the absence of uniform treatment standards across the state's hospitals are combining with shortcomings in staff training to create barriers to treating transgender youth.
  • Three U.S. Marines found unresponsive in a car at a North Carolina gas station had died of carbon monoxide poisoning. Deputies from the Pender County Sheriff’s Office found the three men Sunday morning in a privately owned car outside a gas station in Hampstead. Autopsies performed Wednesday by the North Carolina medical examiner's office determined that all three deaths were the result of carbon monoxide poisoning. Sgt. Chester Ward from the sheriff’s office told The Associated Press that the situation “seems accidental.” The lance corporals were identified as `19-year-old Tanner J. Kaltenberg and 23-year-olds Merax C. Dockery and Ivan R. Garcia.
