SOUTHPORT, NC (WWAY) — Ed pierce planned to light an old quarantine platform in the Cape Fear River near Southport this weekend, but his attorney says he needs to file the appropriate paperwork before installing the lights.

Pierce lost his wife last year after the boat they were riding in hit platform.

Last week the coast guard said it could not remove, mark, or light the platform because it’s outside the boundaries of the river’s marked navigable channel.
