In a link from NBC sent to us by Ex-PH2, the second thug, 16 year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard, who was finally arrested in the murder of WWII combat veteran, “Shorty” Belton in Washington State claims that the whole thing started when the two youths were trying to buy drugs from “Shorty”;
An affidavit from prosecutors says that while he was on the run for four days, Adams-Kinard told two friends that the beating was the result of a drug deal gone bad. Police seized a letter signed with Adams-Kinard’s name that gave a similar account.
The letter said that after buying a “zip of crack cocaine from Shorty,” the teens “proceeded to sock him.”
“I took his wallet and another ounce of crack from his pockets,” the letter said, according to the court document. “He was unconscious so I made sure he was still breathing, and then I took off.”
The letter was purportedly an explanation the teen was writing to his mother, police said.
Spokane police said they doubted the drug-buying story, with spokeswoman Monique Cotton saying in a statement: “We have no evidence to support that.”
Even Glenn’s lawyer, Christian Phelps, said he was highly skeptical of the claim, which was disclosed during Adams-Kinard’s court appearance on Tuesday.
Yeah, Kenan, we believe that shit. Nice try. I’m sure it will resonate with some people, though.
