CLARKSDALE, Miss. -- The body of Marco McMillian, the former Alabama A&M administrator whose body was found last week, was "beaten, dragged and burned," according to a statement released by his family to the Jackson Clarion Ledger. A Shelby Miss. man, 22-year-old Jeremy Reed, has been charged in McMillian's murder.
"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 in the statement. "Marco, nor anyone, should have their lives end in this manner."
McMillian worked in the cabinet of former Alabama A&M President Robert Jennings from 2006-07. McMillian was running for mayor of his hometown of Clarksdale when he went missing after his SUV was in a car accident last Tuesday morning.
Police began searching for McMillian after the accident in which Reed was driving his car.
Family members of both McMillian and Reed have confirmed the two men knew each other. Coahuma County Sheriff's Department has said only that McMillian's death is not considered a hate crime connected to the fact that he was openly gay.
5. All of the above
Sounds almost like the way the Islamists were treating some captured security contractors...
I'm going to guess the perp is also gay, which makes it doubly unlikely we will see this in the news that much. That level of extreme violence is generally reserved for lover's spats in the gay community.
I lived in SF and knew a cop there:
Gay guy murders verrrry commonly produce scenes hugely rich in hate and angst:
Genitals cut off, eyes cored out, words written in blood, photos smashed and torn up, lots and lots of, “you hurt me in a very special way and I’m going to make your death slow and horrible”.
Drama queens REALLY let it flow when they kill somebody.
OF COURSE the liberal (and 80% gay) Bay Area media has a huge code of silence about it: wouldn’t fit the, “gay = funny/creative/spontaneous” narrative.
are they sure its not a suicide?
Sorry for being ‘picky’ but, IMNSHO the headline is telling me that the BODY underwent that degradation AFTER the murder?
And here's the low-life waste of space who harmed him:
And yet, how many in the “community’ will think to themselves, that he got what was coming to him because he didn’t “keep it real”?
The perp is not only black but almost certainly gay.
NO ONE likes to, or even CAN, exploit cases like this, because , the minute they look into it, real life intrudes,
and no one can call it a hate crime, a gender-bias crime,
anti-black bias crime,etc.etc. There are simply no handles to grab it from,nothing there to exploit in the service of
any current political agenda.
Black man murdering another black man by torturing him to death: no agenda advancement, not news.
Black individuals murdering white couple (in Tennessee) by torturing them to death: no agenda advancement, not news.
White man shoots black man in self defense in Sanford, Florida: agenda advancement possible, headline news for months.
Shelby is just a little, tiny town between Cleveland and Clarksdale, MS.
Homosexual, black on black crime won’t get any attention outside of the immediate area. It doesn’t fit the media mold.
Thank you for the photos.
“White man shoots black man in self defense in Sanford, Florida: agenda advancement possible, headline news for months”
I like what you said, but Zimmerman had an Anglo-Jewish last name but turned out to be Hispanic. Those agenda-seeking MSM news outlets didn’t bother checking who/what the guy was.
If the LIBERAL MEDIA NARRATIVE isn’t furthered, it isn’t news.
It’s exactly why the MSM refuse to ever report anything negative on Obama. They WILL NOT undermine his power. Benghazi, the debt, the lies, vacations, golf, Arab appeasement-Israel hatred, Fast & Furious, etc. will never be reported.
Political correctness is more important than the truth.
Must be a huge disappointment to the MSM that they are both African American. It would have made such a lovely hate crime story.
According to the MSM (when they were pouring gasoline on the fire back in the first days of the conflagration) Zimmerman is a "white Hispanic."
Already knew this.
A young white boy was beaten to death in school by two feral blacks and not only is it not news, nobody was arrested.
Counselors were brought in.
