Marcia’s Partner Alleges She Was Targeted by Gang Rivals


While the family states they fear for the safety of their loved ones, late this evening News Five spoke one-on-one with Marcia’s boyfriend, who has his own conclusions about the reason for her murder. While he did not want to disclose his full name, Michael says he was at the hospital when Marcia took her last breath and recounts their last moments together.


Michael, Boyfriend of Marcia Downs

“After eight this thing happen and when I di try call she now cause I see she noh di answer. And dah like soh me stand, when yo noh answer, I wah call yo. And I call she and when I call she, she noh di answer. But couple hours after somebody seen the call, but I done know dah the son because ih son know the password; one-eight-seven-seven.
