Police Arrest Man Suspected of Being Connected to Young Greatness Killing
According to a report NOLA.com posted on Wednesday (Jan. 16), the 38-year-old Donald Reaux has been booked with accessory to second-degree murder, obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice. Though NOPD released video footage of a person of interest in the murder earlier this month, Reaux is not the same person seen on the video. Reaux's image was previously released as police began the investigation, however.
As previously mentioned, Young Greatness was shot and killed outside of a Waffle House in his hometown of New Orleans this past fall. At the time of his death, Greatness was reportedly in town for a funeral. The rapper was declared dead on the scene from one bullet wound, and the suspects reportedly fled in his vehicle.
"I can't stand that place," Greatness' mother Jeanine Rose told New Orleans' WDSU at the time of the rapper's death. "They can have it with their politics and potholes. It's too many mothers taking slow walks to sad tombs while they sit at home and play politics with people's life and people living."
Apart from Reaux, the NOPD have also named Brett Scipio, 35, as someone they would like to speak to about the crime. According to reports, Scipio is not wanted for the shooting death, nor has he been named as a suspect as of yet.
