Deady Eddie

“We want everybody to know Eddie was a man of God. He made mistakes like the rest of us – but his mistakes didn’t define who he was.” So said Pastor Jason Robbins.

One mistake did have a lasting definition for William ‘Eddie’ Powers, who died aged 33 while he was stuck between two walls of a flea market in South Carolina.

He’d broken in to the market, fell through the attic, and got lodged there. Police only started investigating after a few days, when a bad smell became overpowering.
