Roaden Junior believes father was murdered

Glen Roaden Senior

Seventy-four year old Glen Roaden Senior was reported missing last Tuesday.  He was seen leaving his home earlier that day. But the family was clueless as to his whereabouts…that is until late Monday evening, when they were called out to a creek some one hundred and twenty yards off the Jane Usher Boulevard. The decomposed body of their loved one was discovered inside the creek near a shack. How Roaden ended up there is still a mystery for the officers and the family, but due to the advanced state of decomposition, a postmortem exam was conducted on site. Roaden Senior’s son, Glen Roaden Junior, came to News Five’s studios today to say that he believed that his father was the victim of a homicide.

“They said my father was mentally challenged and my father was not that. And it said that he lived in the shack where they found him and no. my father lived on Faber’s Road Extension.”

“How did her end up there? Do you believe that he was killed?”

 

Voice of: Glen Roaden Junior

“Now that’s a good question. Myself want to know that. that’s why I figured that they killed him and dumped him in the lagoon dah back there.”

 

Duane Moody

“What did he do?”

 

Voice of: Glen Roaden Junior

“He doesn’t work, he just do little errands for Miss Marva with Marva’s Kitchen. Miss Marva said that week of Saturday was the last time she saw him when he brought his carrier for his food. From then he never returned and she knew from then that something went wrong because every single day, he goes there for his food. Then we started to get concerned looking all over for him—in the morgue, in the hospital, in all the places that he kept; in his house. Every day we tried and tried until finally yesterday I get a call that they found a body in Jane Usher Boulevard Area for me to please come over and try to see if that is my dad.”

“So you believe that he has been dead from since when?”

 

Voice of: Glen Roaden Junior

“Well at least four days, but the doctor will have to determine that.”

 

Duane Moody

“When you reached there on site, tell us about what you saw?”

 

Voice of: Glen Roaden Junior

“All I saw was his body lying out there in a decomposed state and certain part of him I could recognize it is him; especially his foot. He had a toe that twisted slightly. And his tennis shoe and pants.”

 

Duane Moody

“You said earlier that you believed that he was killed despite the fact that the results of a post mortem has not been provided to you as yet. Why would you say that?”

 

Voice of: Glen Roaden Junior

“Well from where they found him…What the hell he woulda mi do down there? From that I think they throw the body there.”

 

Duane Moody

“Going there and seeing him, did you see any signs of stab wounds, gunshots, anything like that?”

 

Voice of: Glen Roaden Junior

“Well actually it was hard to see that with the condition of the body. The body was eaten from the chest part come up, the face the hands…so it was difficult. The doctor would have to determine that.”

 

The result of the post mortem released says that the cause of death was inconclusive.
