Morgan, Anderson Booked for Murder of Kurt Howard

Jun 10, 2010 | Posted by: pragmatist | Full story: www.2theadvocate.com

Baton Rouge police arrested two men Wednesday in the June 1 shooting and eventual death of a 32-year-old man on Wilmot Street.

A relative found Kurt Howard, 4941 Wilmot St., in his home June 1 with a gunshot to the head, police have said.

He was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead Friday, police said.

Police arrested Benjamin Morgan, 20, 4844 Pecan Grove Drive, St. Francisville, for allegedly shooting Howard during an armed robbery, said L’Jean McKneely, a police spokesman.

Morgan was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on one count of first-degree murder.

McKneely said Morgan and another man, Richard Anderson, 28, 1855 Boulevard De Province, went to Howard’s home to rob him of money and drugs.

Anderson was booked into Parish Prison on one count of principal to first-degree murder and possession of Schedule IV drugs.

What makes y'all think he is looking down, he was a drug dealer after all and that had everything to do with his murder.

Well Roy, you seem to be a bitter person, but let me tell you this, I know my son, he was a caring person, Not all drug dealers are bad people, and what was the reason for his murder was drug users looking to find money for their next fix, it had nothing to do with anything else, and since you think you know so much about the situation, you must have been involved in drugs to know all that you think you know. I know what Kurt was involved with at the time and it was not what you think. All of that was in his past, but keep hating and running your mouth on matters that aren't true, it will find its way back to you, "GOD" doesn't like ugly.... I know my son's heart and it was a good caring one.

I once read "Conversation With the Supplicant" by Franz Kafka. I see a striking similarity between the main character and Kmom and Kdad.

What I was saying was: People are saying Kurt was a drug dealer, well, Kurt was a kind, caring, decent person and I know what is and was in his heart for his so called step brother and other people that screwed him over the years, he was not malicious, he was not mean and hurtful, so yes think what I said was stupid, but if he was classified as such and there is no way I can change anyone's mind such as one that is so unkind like yourself, then I guess I can sum it up like that. Think what you want, you also have to meet your maker one day. Learn to be kind and forgive and forget otherwise you can put yourself in the same category at the so called "scum of the earth" as you claim my son to be. He wasn't perfect, but I know him better than you do.

Oh so you were there that day, maybe I should contact the DA's office and find out what computer this came from and have them charge you with something, because if you know something that the DA's office doesn't know yet, you should be held accountable too! Otherwise, keep your comments to yourself (RICHARD)! because they sound like they are coming from someone who is knee deep in this..........

I think there is a trial for Vinci on April 22, 2014 and a sanity hearing for Richard on Feb 22. Ben is scheduled for trial in March, but that might change.
