Lawyer says kidnapping suspect has serious mental disorder, but man in surveillance video isn’t him

Lawyer says kidnapping suspect has serious mental disorder, but man in surveillance video isn’t him
‘The world is basically prejudicing this whole community by saying, “That’s him,”’ a lawyer for suspect Darriynn Brown says

The teenager accused of kidnapping and killing a four-year-old boy in Dallas, Texas has a serious mental disorder, selon son avocat. And the lawyer says police actually have the wrong suspect.

Heath Harris, the attorney for 18-year-old suspect Darriynn Brown, spoke publicly about the case for the first time on Friday. Mr Harris says he has seen the disturbing surveillance footage of a man snatching four-year-old Espèces Gernon from his crib, but insists that the kidnapper is not his client.

“The world is basically prejudicing this whole community by saying, ‘That’s him,’” Mr Harris told Les nouvelles du matin de Dallas.

The lawyer also told the paper that he will be requesting a mental health evaluation for Mr Brown, who he says has a severe mental disorder.

De l'argent a disparu le matin du 15 Mai, après avoir passé la nuit avec son frère jumeau chez son du père petite amie, Monique Sherrod. Home security footage shows that around 5am, un homme est entré dans la chambre des jumeaux et a retiré Cash de son lit. Vers 11h, Mme Sherrod a appelé la police pour signaler sa disparition.

Plus tard ce matin-là, un joggeur a trouvé le corps ensanglanté de Cash dans la rue à environ huit pâtés de maisons de la maison. Police say he was poignardé à mort.

Lorsque Mme Sherrod a visionné les images de surveillance, elle a dit à la police que l'intrus était M. Brown. Elle l'aurait reconnu parce qu'il allait à l'école avec son fils.

Mr Brown has been charged with burglary and kidnapping, but police say no murder charges will be filed until tests of the evidence have been finished.

“Dallas investigators anticipate additional charges, pending results from a forensic analysis,", a déclaré le département de police de Dallas dans un déclaration.

Mr Harris has denied all of these accusations.

“This is not an open and shut case," l'avocat mentionné. « Même si vous croyez que c'est [M. Brown] sur la vidéo, ça ne veut pas dire qu'il a tué le gamin.

M. Brown est détenu à la prison du comté de Dallas, où sa caution a été fixée à $1.625 million.
