    Fox news is reporting that Joshua Brown was killed. Shot in the mouth and chest.

    According to The Dallas Morning News, the 28-year-old Brown was found with multiple gunshot wounds at the complex near the city's Medical District at around 10:30 p.m. He was pronounced dead at Parkland Memorial Hospital.

    Brown was the next door neighbor of Botham Jean who was killed by ex Dallas cop Amber Guyger when she entered his apartment thinking it was her own.

    I think he testified that he heard Botham singing before she went in.
    Also that he heard conversation that sounded like two people surprised to see one another. But did not hear"shouting of commands".
    Click on the link "The Dallas Morning News" in the original post for the article I read.

    We must look at the totality of the circumstances.

    Are the Clintons involved somehow?

    Not really. Most murders in America are urban thugs killed by other urban thugs. This is about as mysterious as rain in the spring.

    Where do you get that the young man was a thug? I didn’t see any mentions of gangs or drug dealing.

    Just a gut reaction to a guy who shows up for court in a T-shirt and sweat pants, covered with jailhouse-style tattoos up his arms and neck, is that he wasn't an honor student (unless he was killed by the police - then everybody's an honor student).

    The only “key” witness in that trial was the defendant.

    No way anyone is blaming this guy for her conviction. She should have stayed off the stand.

    Wait....now the guy who saw nothing and only heard two people have a 'surprise encounter' where he couldn't make out the words is a 'key witness'? Key to what?

    I guess the media is spinning this to keep this little train going.

    Maybe the apartment complex is just that violent and this girl was on edge because of it.

    Key witness or not, lots of people here in the Dallas area are up in arms about his murder. I’m not a supporter of conspiracy theories, but it is a hell of a coincidence that he was murdered only a couple of days after the verdict and sentencing.

    From the headlines I have seen. most of the press is trying to use it as click-bait by implying some conspiracy to kill him for testifying. They know folks in the ghetto will eat up anything that makes a black person the victim of a conspiracy to keep them down.

    Well, I think his testimony was pretty critical.

    He testified he and Bo smoked weed together, he heard him singing AND he’d gone to the wrong apartment before.

    Now, I’m not real up to speed on the whole conspiracy thing and all but, I thought the idea of knocking off key witnesses was before they could testify.

    Not a week after the conviction.
