The family of 27-year-old David Santucci, who was shot to death walking home in the early morning hours of Aug. 12, is speaking out and claim the police are covering-up a black-on-white hate crime.
While Memphis police have claimed the murder was the result of an attempted robbery, Santucci was shot from about ten feet away, and his wallet and cellphone were not taken.
The victim's brother-in-law, Miguel De Diago told the Blaze that one of those charged with the shooting, Mario Patterson, "had numerous photos of Trayvon Martin" oh his Facebook page.
The page in question has since been removed.
What follows is this reporter's original report on the deadly shooting:
