Photos From the MySpace profile of Nichael Williams, currently on a public setting,
According to details found only in a Fox 9 story, click here, Haywood's girlfriend Nichael Williams was at the wheel of a vehicle belonging to former boyfriend Marshawn Stevens. Haywood Eaton was in the vehicle, a green Tahoe.
Marshawn Stevens and Haywood Eaton were in a confrontation over the use of the green Tahoe by Williams while Haywood was in the vehicle. The confrontation grew to a fight involving a number of young men.
Other news reports paint a picture of...
...bystanders at the dirty and crime-ridden Hawthorn Crossings strip mall / open air drug market running to see the exciting fight, including a 15-year-old boy who dragged a 4-year-old girl there by the hand from the McDonalds restaurant.
Accused shooter Denell Malone--whose name is spelled with one "n" while his father's name has two--reportedly pulled up his shirt to display a pistol. Then Malone ran behind the Burger King, pulled his shirt up over his face, and came out shooting. Based on news video of a wadded up garment left at the scene, JNS blog believes the shirt to be a "long plain white tee."
Malone allegedly fired at least four times, hitting not only his intended target but also the 15-year-old, who was trying to run away at that point. The 15-year-old was hit in the back and ran to the McDonalds at Hawthorn Crossings strip mall. Based on the fact the 15-year-old had broken ribs (plural) JNS blog speculates the weapon was at least a .38 caliber, and not merely a .22 caliber pistol.
The naming of names by Fox 9 creates opportunities for the blogosphere to ferret out additional information in this high-profile crime.
Nichael Williams maintains a MySpace page, click here, which as of this moment is set to "public." She has changed her profile name to "R.I.P. Haywood Baaay Im missin u like crazy" in tribute to Haywood. Information on her profile and pieced together from news reports would lead to the conclusion that Marshawn Stevens is the father of Williams' first child. Information on Williams' Myspace page would lead one to conclude she is currently pregnant with Haywood Eaton's child.
In contrast to the "nice young man" photo featured on some news reports about Eaton, click here for an example, the "tribute picture" on Williams' MySpace page shows a young man flashing a gang sign.
The images (suspected to be) of Denell "Little Don" Malone are even more disturbing, as he flashes a gang sign in front of a poster for the movie "Scarface" with Al Pacino, click here for an example of the content of that movie.
This morning, JNS blog has been repeatedly and emphatically asked not to publish this information by an individual concerned about my safety.
It is the position of JNS blog that the revitalization efforts in NoMi can only go forward if revitalizers are unafraid to speak the truth, openly and in detail, about (for example) a true picture of daily conditions at the drug and gang-infested Hawthorn Crossings strip mall. Denell "Little Don" Malone, Jr. and Haywood Eaton are part of that picture, and it should be an accurate and detailed picture, not distorted by funereal sentimentality or denial about the life of Haywood Eaton or, for that matter, Denell Malone, Jr.
JNS is alive today. God willing, I will be alive tomorrow, and the next day. I will be alive two weeks from now. I will be uninjured, unafraid, and I will speak the unvarnished truth about what goes on in my neighborhood and how decent people fight a daily battle to turn our neighborhood around and how--despite periodic setbacks of gang members killing gang members--we are making incredible progress.
OK. Do the comments thing now.
