Victim: Carter
Victim: Carter

File number: 09-39159

The Victim: Greg Carter, 43 years old.

The Crime: On 12/23/09 at approximately 4:00 p.m.  the Colorado Springs Police Communication Center received a call from Medical Staff at Memorial Hospital Emergency Room,  indicating they were treating an assault victim who had life threatening injuries. The victim, Greg Carter, was being treated for a traumatic brain injury. Because medical personnel removed glass from the victim’s scalp, it is believed he had possibly been beaten with a beer bottle.

During the investigation, it was learned Mr. Carter had returned home the night of 12/22/09 and was acting odd.  Family members asked the victim where he had been that evening, and he responded he had been on Peterson Road and ran out of gas. Mr. Carter had been driving his 1996 black Chevrolet Camaro. At the time, his family did not see any visible injuries, but believed his behavior to be odd. They requested he go to the hospital, but Mr. Carter refused and stated he just wanted to go to bed.

The following day, 12/23/09, Mr. Carter’s son again requested his father go to the hospital or he (the son) would call 911 and have medical personnel respond to their home. Subsequently, Mr. Carter was taken to Memorial Hospital by his son where he later passed away from his injuries.

Nothing further at this time.
