“So there’s been conflict because I know yesterday a definitive motive could not have been determined? So now do you guys have the motive for that?”

“We do have a motive, but to tell you the motive will be going into the deceased past and I do not do that.”



“Sir, is the motive that Troy Cole…streets know long time Troy Cole kill Marky Medina. I wasn’t there so I don’t know, but people in the area often say that it is well known there. Is that the motive?”
