Secoriea Turner’s Lawyer’s take on the case:
Prosecutor for Secoriea’s family is Mawuli Davis. He stated that the victim, her mother, and friend of her mom were on their way home. When gun shooting from a group of males. They were well-armed and started firing on the car. One of them was wearing a white T-Shirt. It was on the Fourth of July. The bullets hit the vehicle many times while hitting Secoriea.
The family fellow, who was driving. She rushed to Atlanta Medical Center for a medical emergency. Secoriea went through surgery at the hospital. But did not survive her wounds were deep. Victim’s lawyer said Secoriea’s family does not want the wrong person to go to jail. But he also said that the family was appalled that the suspect is Mr. Conley.
The lawyer added that This is very painful and frustrating for the family members. They want any eyewitness, including Mr. Patterson’s client. To share data about the incident. That can bring the people guilty of death. So the girl gets justice.
On Wednesday Secoriea’s funeral ritual held in Atlanta. It is mentally disturbing for the family. They just need help with closure. As said by the lawyer. They are still in confusion. It is a very bad dream. From which they can not wake up.
