The man was killed and that's all the story needs to say other than, his murder is being investigated. His past is just that!!!!!

so what does his past felonies have to do with him being found shot behind the Dollor General today. if cops the didn't do it we don't need to know this man's history. find out who killed him if it was an accident or on purpose because that is what truly matters. this man could have turned his entire life around after that 2019 arrest.


What does his "PAST" criminal record have to do with him now that he's dead? That doesn't make no sense to publicly add that to this story. 🤦‍♀️ Just say there's no suspect in custody.
