Grieving Mother Claims Policeman Abused Her at Murder Scene

As if the murder of Cleon Smith Junior was not enough for his mother to endure, she showed us abrasions on her skin that she accuses a policeman at the crime scene of inflicting on her. Stephanie Bood told News Five off camera that she had just arrived at the murder scene of her son on Sunday afternoon and needed to see if it was him inside the vehicle when she was flung to the street by an officer. Bood explained how it happened.
