Today, the partner, son and family attorney of 37-year-old slain Baton Rouge, Louisiana CD seller Alton Sterling appeared in a news conference to solidify Sterling’s family-man legacy and to prepare for pending litigation.
In the news conference, Sterling’s 15-year-old son fights back tears as his mother talks about the man’s death by Baton Rouge police on July 5.
“Her son, Cameron Sterling, had to watch this as this was put all over the outlets,” Sterling’s partner Quinyetta McMillan tells reporters. “As a mother I have now been forced to raise a son who is going to remember what happened to his father.”
“The individuals involved in his murder took away a man with children who depended upon their daddy on a daily basis,” McMillan states. He “simply tried to earn a living to take care of his children.”
Attorney Edmond Jordan wants an independent investigation with Louisiana State Police taking over.
