This Marco McMillian case is getting out of hand.
Here is more info about what supposedly happened from the alleged killer, Lawrence Reed:
The sisters who live in the home say Reed stopped by their house just before he crashed McMillian's truck, and ended up in the hospital. "He was supposed to have taken him to a party in Marks, but you know, they didn't ever make it," one sister says.What is really going on?
Clarksdale is a small town with a lot of talk. The sisters asked to not be identified because of what they call, "small town politics."
In Clarskdale, everyone's taking a side. Reed's roommate, Kamillia Evans, told abc24.com just days after the murder, "If he did do it he was defending himself."
Lamar Kearney is a Clarksdale resident who doesn't believe the claim, "That don't sound like self defense to me."
However, the sisters say Reed told them everything. Just after midnight on February 26, their youngest sister received a panicked call from Reed. One sister says, "He called at 12:11am and he told her that the dude (McMillian) was trying to rape him. He was exposing himself to him, playing with himself, telling him to do things and then he'll take him home."
He told the girl he was on a back road and couldn't get away. A few minutes later a bruised, bloody and broken Reed showed up at their back porch. "He just looked like he had been through war..." one sister describes, "He was standing in the back, back here, telling God to forgive him. He didn't mean to do it, and he was saying that he just wanted to die."
She says when Reed couldn't get away from McMillian, he used the chain on his wallet to choke the 200 pound politician. "He was shaking real hard, he was crying real hard, he was circling, begging for somebody to talk to him."
The sisters say Reed was inconsolable and, they believe, suicidal. "When he left out, he just drove out, sped up and hit a white truck head on."
