More details about the Mississippi mayoral candidate Marco McMillian's death.
He was beaten, dragged and burned.
“We feel this was not a random act of violence based on the condition of the body when it was found,” the McMillian family said. “Marco, nor anyone, should have their lives end in this manner.”Marco McMillian’s body was found near the Mississippi River. Lawrence Reed has been charged for Marco's death. At this time, the murder is not considered as a hate crime.
The family, which said it learned details of the murder from the coroner, asked for a full and thorough investigation into the 33-year-old’s death.
The Coahoma County Sheriff’s Department, which is leading the investigation, didn’t immediately have a response to the family’s statement.
