LISTEN TO ENTIRE INTERVIEW
Kenneth McDade, father of Kendrec McDade, breaks down on air
An emotional Kenneth McDade talks to the Front Page about the killing of his son Kendrec McDade. Kendrec was killed March 24th after a 911 caller’s false armed robbery report led officers to shoot and kill the 19-year-old college student they believed to be a suspect.
Caree Harper, the attorney for the family, says that besides dealing with the grief of the losing their son, they must now raise $10,000.
Oscar Carillo, the 911 caller whose backpack had been stolen from him, later admitted he lied about the guns in order to get a more urgent police response. He has since been arrested for lying to the police and is being held on an immigration hold.
However, while questions and accusations fly about the death of McDade, his family can’t move forward until they bury their son. In addition to their rising legal fees as they move forward in the pursuit of justice, McDade’s death is unexpected expense that requires them to ask for public help.
