THIS IS A STORY I HAVE BEEN COVERING SINCE THE END OF 2013…THAT’S WHEN FEDERAL PROSECUTORS SAY 29 YEAR OLD CONRAD BARRETT WENT OUT HUNTING
FOR A BLACK PERSON TO KNOCKOUT IN KATY. HE FOUND A VICTIM IN KATY TEXAS. HE FOUND AN 81 YEAR OLD MAN WE’VE ONLY IDENTIFIED BY HIS INITIALS R-C. BACK ON OCTOBER 16TH BARRETT WAS SENTENCED TO 71 MONTHS IN FEDERAL PRISON. THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT JUST RELEASED THE VIDEO TODAY. WE WARN WARN YOU IT IS VIOLENT.
YOU WILL HEAR BARRETT TALKING TO HIMSELF IN HIS TRUCK AS HE RIDES AROUND KATY LOOKING FOR THE RIGHT VICTIM TO KNOCKOUT ON CAMERA. HE RECORDED IT HIMSELF ON HIS CELLPHONE AND WAS HOPING TO GAIN NATIONAL FAME FROM IT!
That’s the question that’s floating around Waller County this week.
This is after Bland was arrested Friday and placed in the Waller County jail.
Monday she was found hanging in her jail cell according to friends.
Sources in the community say they spoke with Bland Saturday and she had a $5,000 bond for assaulting a police officer. We’re told she was originally pulled over for failing to signal by a State Trooper.
Some in the racially charged community say they now suspect foul play. One friend tells the Factor the 28 year old just got a new job and had everything to live for.
Waller County District Attorney Elton Mathis confirms the Texas Rangers have been brought in to conduct the investigation.
A representative at the Sheriff’s office says they will soon release a press release on the issue.
In the meantime, some friends in the community say they plan to protest to the sheriff’s office until they get answers and justice.
I had a chance to speak with Bland’s sister who said the family is still in Chicago and they won’t likely get to Texas until Friday.
As expected the sister says the family I still trying to digest all of the facts before they make their next move!
