Badcopnews.com – Two men arrested for alleged intimidation to a key witness case of murder in St. Petersburg Louis. Thus the statement of the police.
Report from Fox, Wednesday (27/06/2018), Both are Larry “Poppy” Strickland, 31, and Anthony “Big Ant” Demyers, 33.
According to police, they both worked together to pressure three witnesses to refuse to testify in the deadly shoot of Gentrail Wafford in June 2017.
One of the witnesses, Roderick Silinzy, 40, appeared dead in May. The names of other witnesses are not disclosed.
But neither Strickland nor Demyers are accused of killing Silinzy, reports St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
A lawyer for the case, Kim Gardner said that they have attacked the heart of the judicial system by attacking witnesses.
“The intimidation of witnesses is a behavior that attacks the heart of the judicial system itself,” the lawyer said.
In July 2017, Williams and Cross were charged in connection with Wafford’s death. Cross later allegedly received a document containing the names of witnesses in collaboration with the authorities, and Williams later allegedly delivered the names of witnesses to Demyers, FOX 2 reported.
