Seeking Answers About Maurice Meeks, Homicide Victim...

Stock photo and blog post by John Hoff

Maurice Meeks is dead, killed in a bizarre car-versus-front-porch incident in North Minneapolis. His alleged killer has a long and notable criminal record as documented by Hawthorne Hawkman, click here.

However, to date nobody has written about the record (if any) of Maurice "Mo" Meeks, who was hanging around with a notorious no-account on the night he was killed, which already says plenty.

I attempted to look into Meeks' record...

...but the website where I check into criminal records is down today. Darn. And right when I had a little bit of time and a little bit of internet access, which gave me an opportunity to tackle this particular task.

I will certainly get around to digging up information about Maurice "Mo" Meeks later, but for now I just want to ask the question out loud: what kind of record did the victim have?

You see, I think North Minneapolis is a very safe place: safe for decent citizens who keep their noses clean and don't hang around with notorious criminal no-accounts. The record (if any) of Maurice "Mo" Meeks would help me support that hypothesis or, in the alternative, help disprove it. Which is it? Does anybody know?

When I heard about the story that morning it happened the first question I asked myself was "why were a bunch of guys hanging around outside at 630am". I had a feeling they were not gathering to take a morning trip to the farmer's market.

I'd be willing to bet the driver was not the only intoxicated individual at the scene. Sounds like a night of partying with no-accounts coming to an end at dawn ended badly for everyone.

No matter the record Maurice Meeks had he was a very GREAT person that happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time just because you hang with people doesn't mean you are like that person in the end Maurice was a father, son, brother, and soon to be married, and a god dad to a few children his name will forever live on and he will live through the people that LOVE him here or not....... Rest In Heaven.....
