I tend to notice a lot of people LOVE to talk and criticize, like I said, don't speak unless you know the situation. I know the parties involved personally so before you assume, you should just consider shutting your mouth? whose fault? well who are you to say? some of the best parents raise the worse children.
and you guys are saying self defense? larry and ahmaad jumped out of a car and started a fight. ahmaad ran away and larry was getting beat up so bad he thought he should stab someone. those are the facts. walk on grand st and you'll hear the same story. larry did not even know the victim. he was simply riding along side his brother, took it too far while his brother ran away.
oh not to mention someone turned themselves in the same night.

TheTruth,
Whatever the facts are and you even say THEY started a fight if they would have just found something better to do with their time one boy would not be dead and 2 others about to spend the rest of their life in prison.

the facts are besides the point. eddie was like a brother to me so I know the situation first hand. when I said they, I meant that as in ahmaad and larry. its just sad how a "school yard fight" turns into a murder case. no one has won in this situation, a life was lost and has hurt so many people around that lost and the ones who did it, are also hurting ones around them. no one won

r.I.p eddie I love you

Ahmad Benford didnt do anything !!
Ahmad Benford 19 went to get his 16 year old brother and asked him to take a ride with him not informing Larry that he was bringing him to fight Edward who has been beating Ahmad up since middle school(Larry lives in Georgia and was only visiting so there was no feud between Larry and Edward).
This situation had absolutely nothing to do with Larry. I forgot to mention that Ahmad told on his brother after putting him in this situation. Had he left his little brother at home Larry would not have gotten jumped because of Ahmad and would have never found the need to defend himself in such a manner.
Ahmad didn't do anything but create this whole situation that left mothers without their children. There's no comparison for Edwards mom and I send my deepest peace and blessings to her family. As for Larry's mom she to might loose her son to a system she fought his whole life to keep him out of for an avoidable situation!
Let's keep things in perspective and try to find a way to enforce better parenting foundations in our children instead of making excuses for them. Am I my brothers keeper?

Not to mention Ahmad went straight to the police! But let's think about it, and i'm only saying this because you as well myself have been on or around Grant Street and we work on a different order, if your brother asks you to take a ride and you ask him where and he says just come on, and when you hit Grand St he jumps out, are you not going to get out to see what's going on?
Once the fight started it was as usual, you never know what might happen. Mind you, Edward has been whooping Ahmad for years and Ahmad kept coming back for more running his mouth over a girl and started acting extra when his little brother came and not only with Edward. Ahmad has always been in something with someone. Larry just had the bad misfortune of having a brother who doesn't have best interest in mind.

I am Eddie's sister and I am just now reading your post about the events that took place. The absense of my brother is very very hard for me as well as the rest of my family to accept. We are getting through this the best way that we can. It appears that some of you know the gentleman that were involved and I can respect your comments but let me tell you this, Make a difference in what's going on, on your block. I will never see my brother again because of nonsense. It's unfortunate what the outcome will be for Larry stabbing my brother but he will have to pay the consequences for his actions whether he knew it was coming or not. He pulled out a knife and he knows what happens when you do that. he may have a long time in the prison system but that will NEVER replace my brother's life.

it is absurd for anyone to make judgment about what happened or who started what or why unless you were there at the scene of the crime and saw everything.you don't know what was happening in the moment and these events all happened very quickly. it is the job of the jury to determine guilty or not guilty based on the EVIDENCE they are given. this, of course, was a tragedy, and yes, no one wins. a man died, but we will never know for sure (and there is no hard evidence to prove) that these boys intended to KILL eddy Duffy.
