OTHER SUSPECT ON THE RUN
Another suspect, Shondale Bennett, 27, is currently on the lam despite his arrest being announced on January 11 by US Marshals.
He was being held in a Clay County Jail in Indiana awaiting extradition to Memphis, ومع ذلك, jail records show that he is no longer behind bars and it’s unclear what happened to him.
Barnett is accused of being an accessory in the rapper’s death and the alleged attempt of killing Thorton’s brother, who was also at the bakery at the time of the shooting.
Clay County Sheriff Paul Harden said that Barnett was arrested and booked on January 11 on an outstanding warrant from Shelby County. He was taken into custody by Indiana State Police but Shelby County had called Clay County days later.
“…they told us that they were no longer wanting to come and pick up Mr Barnett and that we were to release him at that time,” said Harden.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that that is a warrant for Barnett’s arrest but details regarding the case could not be provided.
