Devon Epps: Picture the face behind the name
While I’ve never put this little corner of the Internet out as a crime blog, news source, or vigilante-inspiring screed, I do have a background in comprehensiveness…sometimes to a fault.
It occurred to me, though, that one thing has been missing in my ruminations (some would say unhealthy interest) on the death of Devon Epps. While I’ve gone to great lengths to describe just about anything I know about the case, for whatever reason, I’ve left out the most important thing.
Most of you don’t know what Devon Epps looks like.
I don’t think it was a conscious decision at the time, so much as it didn’t feel right. Now, it does. So, I spent a little time delving into the recesses of social networking sites and scraped a few pictures of Devon Epps off a MySpace memorial slide show. Despite being messed up by a truly horrible Flash program, the photos give you an idea of what the little boy looked like.
Next week will mark the one-month mark since Devon Epps died. The incoming information has slowed down a bit. The only thing of real importance I’ve heard in the past week involves the time immediately before and what was supposed to happen the day of Amanda Smith’s car wreck. However, as that information comes third hand, it’s best I don’t start posting rumors.
Here’s to a peaceful weekend for those who deserve it.
