Marcus Camby’s Nephew Found Dead On His Property
Tragic news for retired player Marcus Camby. His 9-year-old autistic nephew tragically passed away on Camby’s property on Thanksgiving.
The Former New York Knicks center was celebrating Thanksgiving with about 20 family members when his nephew, Marcus McGhee, went missing.
McGhee went missing while playing with other kids inside the home. A security camera caught the boy leaving alone out of a side door before wandering off on the property. Adults didn’t realize the boy was missing until a bit after 4pm. The family searched the home and grounds independently until police arrived and took over.
Aso Pearland Police Lt. Onesimo Lopez told the Houston Chronicle, Camby’s “lots of rooms, lots of places where people can hide,” Lopez said. “Each room opens to a different room. It’s almost like a labyrinth.”
Pearland Police searched the property throughout the night. Sadly, the boy’s body was found in an L-shaped lake on Camby’s Houston-area property around 7am on Saturday morning.
Truly sad for this family to experience this type of tragedy, especially on a holiday where they all were gathered together. McGhee’s parents and the rest of Camby’s family are in our thoughts during this difficult time.
