Dead body found behind new Holiday Inn Express

by Sheriff Oscar Carrillo

Carle Gunther, a 62 year-old man from Stanton California was found dead Monday morning behind the Holiday Inn Express on Frontage Road East.  The Holiday Inn Express, still in the building process but open with some rooms complete, had no comment for The Advocate regarding the discovery of Gunther.   Gunther was later confirmed a greyhound passenger that had been left behind early Monday morning.  Tickets have him boarding in California with a destination was Florida.  Gunther apparently got off the bus during a 20 minute layover and walked over to the Holiday Inn Express where he was found by employees.   An autopsy was ordered due to unknown cause of death.  Sheriff’s Office has not been able to locate next of kin.  No foul play is suspected and death may be a possible heart attack complicated by freezing overnight temperature.


  1. Gunther Gary Carle, of Stanton, CA, and Daytona Beach, Florida, died on January 16, 2017 outside El Paso, Texas, of a heart attack.
    He was born on April 15, 1952, in Hackensack, New Jersey, to Edith and Gustav Carle, of Teaneck and Paramus, New Jersey.
    Gary was a bright and gifted student who won academic awards in his early years, graduating from Paramus High School and then attending a nearby community college. Later, he went to beautician’s school and earned a barber and hair styling license. He had a great sense of humor, was fun, witty, kind, and enjoyed traveling throughout the US and to Europe.
    In his early ‘20s, Gary developed schizophrenia, a horrific genetic brain disorder for which there is no known cure. Schizophrenia caused havoc in his day-to-day life as he frequently lived through nightmares from which he couldn’t escape. Given available medications had severe side effects, Gary did not take them and coped the best he could.
    His survivors include a sister, Joanne Carle-Accornero, and brother-in-law, Barry Accornero, who live in Huntington Beach, CA, as well as numerous cousins in Stockholm, Sweden. He was predeceased by his parents.
    Goodbye, sweet little brother, I tried to help you the best I could.
    I hope you finally feel safe and are at peace….
