Lois Lane and myself met with MF at a restaurant on Va Beach Blvd. The interview was set up by a call from Z to MF while we were interviewing Z. MF arrived exactly at 12 noon and joined me at a table, and Lois Lane arrived minutes later. I found MF to be cooperative with a calm manner. We actually interviewed him for 2 hours and 15 minutes and it appeared he was not in a rush to conclude our discussion early. He told us about where he worked now and gladly gave us his cell number. Lois Lane in her post on April 29, 2017, outlined the major points learned.
These are the points I thought important and will share them with you. MF worked the night shift at the 7-Eleven from 11 PM to 7 AM. He also started work at Burger King at 8 am. Remember his mother was in management with this Burger King. He received a call from BK just after 7 AM about 45 minutes prior to his start time there inquiring if he knew where Shellie was. He remembered that he was outside the 7-Eleven cleaning up the area when he observed sirens and fire vehicles speeding toward Kings Grant. This and the call from BK were indications that something was not right and he had concerns that Shellie’s safety was an issue. When BB called him after police visited him at work, he called MF as BB headed home with his parents. They talked and MF revealed that he had a bad feeling when she left and when he heard police sirens and activity heading toward the Kings Grant Rd. He definitely knew something has drastically happened when the BK called him inquiring about Shellie.
MF talked about the fight between Shellie and BB the early evening when they, BB, MF, and Shellie went to Circuit City. My gut feeling was that the fight was manufactured by Shellie to provoke a dispute as she played one boy against the other. The substance of the fight issue was juvenile giving MF an opportunity to be with her. Shellie had a reputation for manipulating young guys and had issues with other females who resented her presence because she came on to their boyfriends.
There were many call calls between Shellie, MF and BB. Of importance, both guys spoke to each other twice prior to Shellie’s murder. One was at the 7-Eleven about 1030 PM and again when BB called him at the 7-Eleven when he arrived home, after his so called reconcilliation with Shellie. This call was unknown to me and set off a Red Flag Alert. Let me explain. When BB left BB tells us that Shellie said to him “call me when you get home” So I’ll know your okay. The alert is BB never called Shellie as the reconciliation promise was requested to call her. BB could never explain that, however, he told us he just forgot. Why would BB call MF to tell him he arrived home and not his beloved Shellie who was his fiance. This just doesn’t make sense and tells us that just maybe be reconciliation never occurred. Think this through as it potentially opens a Pandora’s Box with extensive unseen troubles for BB. Add his rings rationale and his haste marriage. The Red Flag is it doesn’t stand the test of a harmonious conclusion.
