Some hours ago, mainstream media sources named the second (alleged) attacker of Minneapolis mayoral candidate Mark Andrew as Deea Leshawn Elliott, a juvenile.
In a story that made national news, 63-year-old Andrew was robbed of his cell phone at Mall of America and then jumped by two female accomplices. But Andrew fought back, causing the arrest of both of his attackers and, incredibly, his cell phone was recovered, as well.
This would be a good time to note "Powell" is one of the surnames alleged by an informed and highly placed source of this blog to be one of half a dozen or so names associated with multi-generational Minneapolis "crime families."
The mother of this alleged hell-raiser, Delanza Deshawn Elliott, has her own criminal record. Click here for HER online mugshot. And here's her rap sheet, not all of which may represent actual criminal convictions.
I did, however, look into the drug charge at the top and, yes, she was convicted of THAT.
Turning back to the address of this couple, where the juvenile lives, as well, it is also known to be the address of a guy named Bryant Deshawn Elliott who was the subject of a story on this blog back in January of this year, click here. Elliott, whose nickname is "Bay Bay" (judgmental eye roll by the blogger) was convicted in the murder of a guy named Daron Bolden.
Bolden died in the yard of renowned (former) North Minneapolis poet Bryan Thao Worra. This blogger dubbed the homicide the "cosmic meat raffle murder" because Worra was once the winner of a meat raffle, (so random) while Bolden lost the biggest meat raffle of them all.
Given the age and surname of Elliott, I would assume he's the uncle or older brother to the 17-year-old accused Mall of America assailant. Here is his picture from the Minnesota Department of Corrections website. He'll be incarcerated until 2030, and on probation until 2039; at which time his probation supervisor will most likely be A ROBOT.
So how about that? Two criminals for parents and a murderer for a close blood relative. I wonder what the EXTENDED family looks like?
