JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -
The murder of Mayoral candidate Marco McMillian has stunned the City of Clarksdale. Some say it's a hate crime, and now we're hearing from Congressman Bennie Thompson, who has asked the FBI to look into it.
Congressman Thompson spoke exclusively to our news team Friday morning about his request for the Federal probe. He says the state has no hate crime statute for sexual orientation. McMillian was openly gay. The FBI is the only law enforcement body that could determine whether this murder meets the standard.
Thompson says the family asked for his help personally.
"Actually, my daughter went to college with Marco, so there's an even closer relationship with him, and a lot of people I know were familiar with his work. He worked in Washington for four years with his fraternity. He had quite a stellar career in his short life," Congressman Thompson says.
Family members say McMillian was beaten, dragged, and burned in late February, and his body was found near a Mississippi River levee. Friends of the accused, Lawrence Reed, say McMillian may have made unwanted sexual advances toward him.
