Tallahassee, FL—The call did not come during the wee hours of the morning. The call did not come during a late Friday, Saturday or Sunday night. The call did not come when the city was under a tornado watch, hurricane warning, or a flood watch. No! The call was placed and received during a crisp winter mid-morning morning—with clear blue skies and the sun shining brightly from the east.
It was the mid-morning of January 27, 2011—a Thursday—the day after “hump day”—and the day before the end of a regular five day work week, when District Two Medical Examiner Associate, Dr. Anthony Clark received the call notifying and advising him of a 20-year-old Black pregnant female and her brother, a 17-year-old Black male, having been found dead from a gunshot wound each to their heads. NO ONE FROM THE DISTRICT TWO MEDICAL EXAMINER’S OFFICE TOOK THE TIME OUT TO COME TO THE CRIME SCENE. Is/was a NO SHOW standard protocol for the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office? What extra level of intelligence could someone from the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office provided to members of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office at the crime scene–as members of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office were puzzled and confused as to the order of the crime scene, the positioning and the condition of the victims bodies?
According to most of the members of the Leon County Sheriff’s Office reports that arrived at the scene, there was NO SIGN of the victims having struggled in an attempt to prevent their deaths. According to Crime Scene Detective Fred Smelt’s report, the male victim lie on the livingroom floor wrapped in two comforters with a bullet wound through the comforter and into his head. (Surely, no physically fit 17-year-old male is going to willingly allow himself to be completely wrapped in two comforters.) According to Detective Smelt’s report, the gunshot wound through the comforter lined up with the gunshot wound to the side of the male victim’s head. Detective Smelt’s report DOES NOT mention the gunshot wound located to the back of the male victim’s head. The gunshot wound to the back of the male victim’s head was not located until the next day during Dr. Anthony Clark’s autopsy performance. YES, a gunshot wound to the back of the head FIRST would clearly explain why there was no sign of a struggle and why and how the victim was able to be completely wrapped in two comforters. And then the SECOND gunshot wound through one of the comforters would line up with the gunshot wound to the side of the male victim’s head. As for the female victim’s body—she was sitting comfortably in a chair just steps away from her brother’s body. Just maybe it sounds too much like a good possibility that just maybe someone fired the bullet that struck her on the TOP of her head from the TOP of the stairway that led up to the bedrooms. YES, a gunshot wound from the TOP of a stairway will clearly explain why there was no sign of a struggle and why the female victim was sitting with her leg tucked comfortably underneath her other leg. Give it all the experience that Detective Fred Smelt may have with the use of a handheld video camera—through a lens of a video camera is not the only way to get a “BIRD’S EYE VIEW” of the livingroom—crime scene. Is it possible that the male victim’s body could’ve been placed in the livingroom after the female was shot? The theory of the two victims being shot in “Quick succession”—while one was lying on the floor and the other in the chair… How foolish to stand before a jury and even allow the media to take note that a 17-year-old kid could fire off two gunshots as fast—if not faster—than Dirty Harry—and hit two people square on—before either of the victims could react. (So at Sheriff Larry Campbell’s funeral someone described a time when Sheriff Campbell was not able to shoot a squirrel…)
During Dr. Anthony Clark’s trial testimony as a witness for State Prosecutor Jack Campbell, in the double murder case, State of Florida vs. DeShon Thomas, Dr. Clark mentioned several times about “if there was someone testifying to trajectory…” None of DeShon’s attorneys were interested in anyone testifying to trajectory. Proving DeShon’s innocence was not a part of the plan. The same as none of DeShon’s attorneys challenged any part of Dr. Clark’s testimony. The same as none of DeShon’s attorneys provided DeShon with information/and or the victims autopsy reports. The same as the victims’ autopsy reports were kept out of Public Record. The same as the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office/and or Dr. Anthony Clark may not feel that going to a double homicide crime scene where two Black young people (a pregnant woman and her brother) are the victims. The same as ignoring what was noted during the autopsy reports and providing trial testimony to fit State Attorney Willie Meggs, State Prosecutor Jack Campbell and his dad, Sheriff Larry Campbell, along with their close friend, “Fake Cop” Don Odham’s scheme to have DeShon, a Black 17-year-old kid, get convicted and sent to prison for crimes that he did not commit—especially TWO COLD-BLOODED MURDERS. DeShon is INNOCENT!
The two victims that DeShon Thomas is in prison for murdering are 20-year-old Laqecia Herring (unborn baby) and her brother, 17-year-old, Sterling Conner Jr. Both Laqecia Herring and Sterling Conner Jr.’s headstone state their date of death as “January 27, 2011.” By all physical accounts of the sudden stop female victim’s outgoing cell phone activity, as well as the condition of the victim’s bodies, support BOTH of the victims were murdered on JANUARY 26, 2011. Every time the victims’ mother, other family members and friends go to visit the victims’ grave site, when they stare at ‘JANUARY 27, 2011,’ they are staring at a LIE that they’ve been fed in order to get a kid sent to prison.
If the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office and/or Dr. Anthony Clark BELIEVE that Black homicide victims ARE NOT WORTHY of their TIME to go out to the crime scene and conduct a thorough investigation—then the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office and/or Dr. Anthony Clark should not get paid through taxpayer dollars.
Anyone whose deceased loved one has an autopsy performed by the District Two Medical Examiner’s Office—should be weary of their loved one’s autopsy report.
Leaving a COLD-BLOODED MURDERER in the community DOES NOT ONLY brings forth the question, “Do Black Lives Really Matter?” Yet, it really brings forth the question, “Do Any Lives Matter?”
