He wouldnt purposely shoot his cousin. Theyre just trying to lock someone up and throw away the key. I wasnt there but those boys were not only cousins but best friends. I dont believe it... my opinion.

Cops said he didn't have an injury on his leg from gun recoil. Don't know if these guys ever shot a pistol but they don't kick hard enough to leave injuries. I've shot handguns while pressed against my chest that have barely left a mark. And that's on my pale white skin. If the kid did get a bruise it wouldn't show. I'm not Sayin he was the most upstanding guy in town. But I doubt he's a cold blooded killer.

They leave gun powder residue. No residue on pants so firearm was not on leg. Cut and dry!

Its sad that a family is suffering. However.. If they are felons, sellin drugs, and carryin' guns.. The street is better off. They shouldn't put their family through all this. They chose that lifestyle. That's what happens. It catches up with you. For those takin' up for him. You should stand back.. And straightin' your life up too. I'm sure you are addicted as well. It truly is sad, that people don't want a better life. They won't be able to harm others now.
damn right,two more drug dealers off the streets!!!!!

Are you jealous or something? He was not perfect just like nobody else is. Doesn't mean he wasn't human you prick. If you don't have anything nice to say about someone that just passed away don't say nothing at all. Karmas a B1TCH!

Duh yes you can. Tell me why you cant? If everyone is sitting down and you went to sit in a chair and the gun went off when it hit your leg which sent the bullet across and hit the person in the face (which I believe is what is said to have happened.) I wasnt even there and can pretty much put the story together by the bits and pieces I have read and heard. Anyway there were witness there so the truth will come out eventually.

No matter what anyone says or feels he had family and friends who loves him and are mourning him now. I knew him in school from middle school to high school. We wasn't really "friends" but we didn't have any problems either. I seen him a few times a year after we got out of school and he always asked how I was. He was a very nice young man not because he asked how I was but because of how he was in most people's eyes. Now for the ones saying "drug dealers are the worst kind of people" or good now another one off the streets. You are retarded! The worst people are rapist, racial, murders, thieves, and obviously yourself because you are heartless! How do you think his mom is feeling? How bout his dad? His brothers, sisters? Friends? Then god forbid they read these post. It is very sad a life was lost. And how dare you say good. It is not for us to judge him or his life. That is gods place. I don't know if he was a drug dealer or not like I said we really didn't know each other. And if he was then god will deal with him now but there is no excuse for the low life's that are bashing the dead. He was human just like you are. Sorry to keep going on and on it is just so sad to see how cold, heartless,and just plain rude people can be.

I dont know either one of them, but hope and pray that their families will find peace and comfort in this hard time. I am prior military, I have a job and I dont use ANY type of drugs, but for you people bashing them saying they were drug dealers and so on.... the only thing reported was marijuana.... really?? You're concerned about weed?? Guarantee 70% of this town has or still does smoke weed and some point in their life. I have not one problem with someone using or selling weed. The problem with weed is that it isnt legalized and taxed. Point blank. I would much rather deal with someone smoking weed than a blundering drunk. I didn't know Maurice but alot of my friends did and all I see and hear is how he was such a likable and happy person. RIP Maurice. As for his cousin in jail, I feel the man didnt kill his own cousin and friend on purpose and is going through a living hell as we sit here bashing him and his deceased cousin. Shame on you, your not God, only he can judge... not you.

Wow.... I can't believe some of the comments I'm reading from people on here. I left WV years ago and the one thing I always tell myself when I've seen the way people are in the many other big cities I've lived in since leaving is that in wv we are taught respect and manners. Y'all are definitely not representing that by not just this forum but alot if stuff I've randomly seen.
You talk about your "real job life etc" dude your talking smack about the loss if a human life on the trashiest place online! Topix! That's def the classiest thing ever.
I left wv after college because it offered little future for me or my children but all my family is still there. There is nothing there. It's hard to survive in one of the cheapest yet poorest state in the country. There is nothing for the younger generations to do with themselves while learning about life other than to roam the streets. Unless of course your parents have money... Most there don't! I've never done drugs, I don't support drug dealers or users, I grew up with a mother addicted to drugs and have a deep resent for the substances themselves, but I also know about addiction and what it can do to your life. Sometimes people get caught in a life they know no other way to live. But inside they are human just like every one of you a-holes on here talking about him like he's just a stray animal that no one knows or cares exists. He had family and friends just like the rest of us. Look at your own family... I bet they are far from perfect and have you never screwed up with life a bit or were you privlaged enough that you got to live in Thousand Oaks and have life handed to you?
I was just up there a few weeks ago and oak hill is nothing now. It's more of a ghost town than Thurmond ever was. Look at your corrupt government, lazy politicians, stupid excuse for a police force and ask yourself how they've helped make it a place where people can live a better life. How they can come from nothing and be something. Because no one there cares to help make that happen.
I worked at Raleigh General in the ER and I'll tell you the crap that came through there was just ridiculous! Cops testing tasers on any teenager that got a little mouthy with them and laughing about it in the halls and that's just a small thing. To fix your people fix your system. Before you judge someone for the life they had ask yourself what the system and by system I don't mean welfare I mean those who can change the way the state and city run and what will make it a place where half the state isn't on drugs, dealing drugs or "pill heads"
Skin color is irrelevant. Y'all are the most racist state I have ever set foot in and I've lives in all the confederate states! We're all equal human beings. I didn't know him personally but I do know some of his closest friends since before he was the person your judging today. You didn't stop loving someone because their life took a path that you don't agree with. I'll always love my mom and her life wasn't something that makes me proud.

So please get a life yourselves, get off topix talking trash about someone who just lost their life irregardless of how. If you don't care then fine but taking the time to disrespect one of gods children for all the works including those hurt and mourning to see shows your character as a human.
You'll have your day and I hope everyone doesn't talk about what a cynical heartless jerk you were all over the place for your loved ones to see.
May he rest in peace and may god be with his family and friends during this difficult time. And may god be with you jerks who have no soul.

I've never posted on here. I don't even read this crap. I just saw a link one of his mourning friends shared about how this tire her up that people were so cruel. I'm a white girl who used to think my character and humanity for others was because of the way I was raised and past if the mindset of the majority of wv. I guess I can thank my grandparents instead. I guess the majority of the state wasn't lucky enough to be taught manners and respect.
