Phones in newsrooms all over the city rang as Quanell X hit his speed dial. He told news managers that he had the man wanted in The Acres Homes serial killings. Every major news operation headed over to the 6500 block of W. Montgomery where X said the man was supposed to be hold up in a church. Quanell said everyone should get there before he calls HPD to come and get the suspect. When The Insite arrived the man Quanell X had identified as the serial killer was sitting in the church with HPD, Pastor Chris Wright and X. Crime scene and more detectives later arrived. A reporter who was also on the scene then announced this wasn’t the guy. X was wrong even though the man looked a whole lot like the sketch that has made its rounds in the area. But missing was the bald head and the scales of justice on the suspects arm. The man had a lot of tattoos but no scale of justice. Then when the detectives from HPD confirmed they didn’t believe that was the man – the press conference by X changed. He said the man came forward because he and his family didn’t want to be harassed by HPD anymore. He also said he wanted to send a message to HPD not to use the Acres Homes serial killer search to pull over black men and perform warrants checks. X also said he wanted to ensure if they took dna samples from persons of interest he hope they’re destroyed and not saved in some secret HPD data base for future crimes. With their being no consistent story or consistent press conference many news operations just left the video tape on the cutting room floor. What’s your opinion on this issue? What issue? Pick one in this story from The Insite!

    It’s kind of funny how Quannel plays the media. According to Isiah he says one thing and then snakes it around to fit reality, yet he is allowed to keep doing this stuff.

    don’t get me started on x. but i can’t help but notice that the “suspect” looks like the composite sketch.

    Isiah, watch your back…x don’t play and while you speak the truth, and you are a great reporter, he will try to bring you down.

    X should be charged with making a false report to the police.

    While the police were responding to his call, other people were in need of their services!

    How much money was wasted by the police running to this false call?

    Hmm, funny, X doesn’t want the police to grab people and say “he’s the killer!” Yet it’s okay for him to. Don’t you think X cares more about personal publicity and gain than he does about people? X doesn’t give a s*** about those people. Why does the media keep giving him credibility? Could someone please explain this to me????

    I do applaud you for reporting this since I didn’t see it on any other news site. Kudos to you sir.
