Chukwumah Terrell Okolie, Found Shot At 42nd And Fremont, Was A Convicted Murderer...

Creative stock photo, blog post by John Hoff

Two hours ago, the Star Tribune revealed the name of the man found shot Thursday at 42nd and Fremont Ave. N. is Chukwumah Terrell Okolie.

It certainly wouldn't be fair to say "Chuk" has an extensive record of criminal convictions, because I can only find one. But it's a case of quality, not quantity...

According to MNCIS, Okolie was convicted in 1999 of Second Degree Murder. He was CHARGED with First Degree Murder, but pled to second degree in what was clearly a plea bargain.

He was sentenced to TWO HUNDRED MONTHS in prison, which sounds like a long time but clearly it isn't FOREVER because the man was out on the streets. He did get credit for 285 days served, which is also a long time, but in this instance it was just a drop in the bucket.

He was also supposed to pay $7488.75 from his prison earnings. I wonder how much of THAT ever got paid.

In May of 2012, he was arrested for loitering. This doesn't appear to have resulted in a conviction, but the arrest did generate a mug shot, click here.

Here's ANOTHER mug shot, click here.

The Minnesota prisons offender locator lists this guy as being on "supervised release." Clearly some updating will be needed. But when THAT happens, probably Chuk's entire page will go away, including the two mug shots below.


Ah, there we go. Preserved like a Jurassic bug in amber.

The MNDOC page also reveals his birthday is 8/4/81. His release date was April of last year. Additional information comes forth about the details of the murder. It involved a firearm while committing aggravated robbery. If Chuk had lived, he would have been on supervised release until April 2, 2015.

That's all the information I have at this point. It would make a great story if this was some kind of revenge killing but if I had to play the odds, I would say drug deal gone wrong.

The family told a local businessman that this was over a haircut. What do you make of that?

Johnny Northside! said...

That rumor was reported to me in a phone call but that's all I know. I hope the local businessman relayed that info to the cops.

Thanks to the commenter who caught that error. Chuk would have been on supervised release until 2015, not 2012 as I typed accidentally. The error has now been corrected.

It looks as though someone stomped on Barfnecks life. I wonder if the BARF came squirting out of her monster mash gash or the enormously ugly pimple that sits atop of her fat barfneck body?I imagine she's pissed because her boyfriend got killed like the little bitch he is and she didn't get another chance to swallow his jism.

These comments are outrageous. Do you even KNOW the people involved? I strongly suspect this is the usual cast of characters talking out of their ass.

It's so sad that a punk ass ex cop can sit here and bash my buddy, no he wasn't a angle yes he paid his debt for what he did I can honestly say that he made changes in his life and was making a honest living at what he loved to do which is cutting hair it wasn't a drug deal gone bad and it was over a haircut.

Johnny Northside! said...

First, I am not clear who you mean by "punk ass ex-cop."

Secondly, though my speculation at the time I wrote this article was "drug deal gone wrong," I am no longer of that opinion, for the record. The "haircut" rumor seems to have a lot of substance.

HOWEVER, until the police arrest somebody and there's a criminal complaint, we really don't know what went on or even what's ALLEGED to have occurred. We know the man is dead and he was, well, a murderer.

A charming murderer who gave skillful haircuts (though the last few instances may be in dispute) but, all the same, seems like he just couldn't turn his life around and GET OUT OF THE MIX.

Anonymous said...

Ok so speculation is not the way to go the info I'm giving is first hand information given to me by co workers who where there when the argument occurred and when the shooting took place I understand that everyone interprets things differently both stories from two eye witnesses are pretty consistent

I see you get a kick out of getting a rise out of people no more info will be provided the cops probably monitor this page

Anonymous said...

Wow these comments are pretty fucked up. A man just DIED. As in gone, never coming back, will never have a chance to atone for his wrongs, leaves behind family and friends and was quite frankly, fairly young, one year younger than myself. I don't know any of the people involved or the man who died but I drive through that corner twice a day and it is very sobering. I feel sympathy for his family and friends for their loss. YOU may not think it was a loss but I assure you that they DO.

He had turned his life around to bad people don't have nothing better to do is to talk negative about some one who is dead give his family some respect so saf

Marah Shaviss said...

Smh he was never a killer . Please talk what you know he was at the wrong place at the wrong time. And ended up doing 12 years. While you sitting up here talking shit I bet his bank account was bigger than yours and all he did was cut hair. He didn't deserve to die nobody does I can't wait until it's your time so I cam publish a story about your pathetic ass cracker.

How about "you live by the sword, you die by the sword"?
How about "you sit in a barber shop long enough you are bound to get a haircut"? How about"you lie with dogs, you get up with fleas"?

Johnny Northside! said...

A "great man" who spent almost half his life in prison? Please explain to me some aspects of his "greatness."

Johnny Northside! said...

"Ruining" his name, you say?

No, he had that covered on his own.

As for whether it's my Sunday's best, I'm not sure what you're referencing by that but, well, Sunday is a good day to be blogging, as good as any.

Johnny Northside! said...

He was a convicted murderer, therefore a killer. Whether he pulled the actual trigger or merely was involved in plotting the incident, it doesn't matter. Murderer equal sign killer.

Stand by my statement.

Next.

Wow you are a real piece of work. You have the most bias opinions, lmao jonny northside, you need to change that name, you cant even walk down the block without fear.Anybody who makes a good point against you, you ignore and talk about their grammar. You are a joke, its sad someone could live as long as you and be so mentally and emotionally undeveloped. what happened to you to make you this way? Did daddy not hug you enough? Bottom line anybody with any real intelligence can just read you garbage and see you are a disturbed individual,mentally disturbed not disturbed by crime because you seem to welcome it. For an individual to judge someone bases only on the word of or court system is a sheeple, there are 12 year olds smarter and more mature than that.

"For an individual to judge someone bases only on the word of or court system is a sheeple, there are 12 year olds smarter and more mature than that."

Well, I took a look at Case No. 27-CR-98-105705
State of Minnesota vs CHUKWUMAH TERRELL OKOLIE

Originally charged with:

"1. MURDER IN THE 1ST DEGREE (Aid/Abet - GOC) 609.185S3 Felony 09/25/1998

2. MURDER IN THE 2ND DEGREE-INTENTIONAL (Aid/Abet - GOC) 609.19S1 Felony 09/25/1998"

CHUKWUMAH TERRELL OKOLIE apparently decided he should plead guilty to count 2.

" 04/12/1999
Plea (Judicial Officer: Lindberg, Peter)
2. MURDER IN THE 2ND DEGREE-INTENTIONAL (Aid/Abet - GOC)
Guilty"

Just to be sure there is also this, which shows Okolie changed his plea on count 2.

" OTHER EVENTS AND HEARINGS
04/12/1999 Petition to Enter Guilty Plea
04/12/1999 Converted SIP Activity
04/12/1999 Plea Hearing (9:00 AM) (Judicial Officer Lindberg, Peter)
Result: Held"

He admitted his own guilt. Pack up this don't judge crap and peddle it somewhere else.

I do not know this man personally but I have had my son get a haircut by him. He was very nice and friendly. This article breaks my heart to hear someone gets murdered and someone can only dig in his past instead of the sadness it may have brought. I am very sorry to hear this happened to him. Looks like he tried to turn his life around. To his family I am sorry for your loss. RIP

Terry was not a "thug" or a " gang banger" he was a man who made mistakes in his past like eveyone of you on here. Everybody has a chance to redeem themselves for their prior mistakes and sins that is what jesus died on the cross for. I pray for all of you ignorant souls. Remember only God can judge. Terry was a good guy that had a past that we do not have the right to judge him on..... he was not that evil person you make him out to be. Terry was a good friend and one of the best barbers around you could catch him working open to close he was ALWAYS there. Terry will be missed. Btw I'm only 12!!!

I have every right to judge him, and here I am judging. Only god can judge my judging. Since I'm not in the habit of MURDERING PEOPLE I feel like I am fit to stand in judgment of him.

It is a goddamn shame the way they reel these children in and they end up DEAD.

I am not going to verbally attack you johnny northside what I am going to do is pray for you in my youth group at church. You say you are a vet, have you ever killed anyone? I read your stories all the time and you are intiltled to your opionions as am I but to attack people because of their opionions is wrong. We ALL deserve a second chance nobody is perfect including you. Passing judgement on somebody or something you no nothing about is wrong. Is this what my generation gets to look foward to? I hope for all of us kids its not!

Actually I am a girl not a boy and thanks for pre judging me. Ignorance is all I can say. You don't know me but based on what I said you came up with a story of who you thought I was and where I will end up in life. I am a straight A student invilved in many leadership programs, I volunter at the nursing home down the street from my house, I also am deeply involved in my church. So no I will not end up dead and my head is far from empty. It is a shame that you would verbally attack me without knowing anything about me. I will also be praying for you. Btw I am white but why does race matter? Mmy great grand parents aunts uncles and parents grew up and still live on the NORTHSIDE there is still great people in the city oh and fyi my uncle is a cop so no I don't hate cops. Shows how much you THINK you know.
