Jailed firefighter, 'Green Goblin' robber, attempts suicide
Police are also investigating theft from individual firefighters at several different NC fire stations
By Gregory Childress
CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — A Durham firefighter, who police are calling the "Green Goblin" because he allegedly committed a string of robberies wearing a mask similar to that of a villain in the Spider Man comics, tried to hang himself Tuesday afternoon while in the Durham County Jail.
Damon Quick, 35, a nine-year veteran of the Fire Department, was discovered in his cell by a detention officer who was conducting security checks.
