What Happened ?
Condolences – Comments and Reactions.
That Bryan Pata story is crazy/sad. Given their feud and an actual fist fight I’m sure a lot of players on that team strongly felt they knew who the killer was. That’s too obvious

The sad part about Bryan Pata’s case is that some of his former teammates at the time probably had an idea about who it was that murdered him but chose not to say anything out of fear of being labeled a “snitch.”

Clearly, yall either can’t comprehend OR just too lazy to read a 60 sec article. They were NOT friends. Pata and his killer were beefing for some time and they also had a physical fight .

Everything was known I can’t understand why it took so long but God is still good justice will be served and his family can now get some closure from this horrible tragedyStacey Calixte wrote
Crazy cause the news network said that he was charged in the case. So ultimately it’s not closed.

Referencing Marshals service doesn’t make your case stronger, what was the new evidence in the last months that made obtaining an arrest warrant warranted?

I remember going to work and hearing the news, I had to stop and park because I was crying my heart out! I never knew the young man; but it hurt the same way. Thanks God the homicide department found the killer. My respect goes to the police Dept and my love to Pata’s Family.

15yrs too long when clearly you had a good lead from teammates & An ex girlfriend who knew I’m sure. (Given her 3 different mug shots and current prison stint she ain’t no saint) and cell phone tower records. Thankfully Family didn’t let it rest & Espn did a follow up investigation. Plus being Black Haitian immigrants… didn’t help. But great point person for mdpd.. oh man he is the best.. that dude could talk Jesus down from the cross.
