About a half hour later, another caller said a man was found dead inside the Foxy Lady strip club on MacCorkle Avenue. Deputies with the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Department and the West Virginia State Police confirmed someone had been killed inside the club.

A short time later, deputies found Meador at Grumpy’s Bar and Grill, located farther east on MacCorkle Avenue, with blood on his clothes. Deputies said the 38-year-old had told someone he had killed a man.

The male victim had been identified as Glen Alfred Carpenter Jr.
