19-Year-Old Shooting Victim Was Expected To Testify In Upcoming Trial

The police are still trying to put the pieces of this puzzle together.

Via the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

A 19-year-old found shot to death near his Polk County home was supposed to testify in an upcoming trial, according to police.

Desmond Ray Kinnemore, of Rockmart, was supposed to meet this week with the county’s District Attorney, Rockmart police Chief Keith Sorrells told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution on Thursday.

But Tuesday morning, Kinnemore was found dead in ditch near his Morgan Valley Road home, according to police. A 911 caller reported hearing gunshots around 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, but didn’t see the shooting, Sorrells said.

When investigators arrived, Kinnemore was dead of an apparent gunshot wound, Sorrells said. It was the city’s first homicide since New Year’s Day 2011.

No suspects had been named Thursday, Sorrells said.

“We haven’t had much luck with this one,” Sorrells said.

But investigators were working to determine if Kinnemore’s planned testimony in an upcoming trial could have played a role in his death. Details about that case were not available late Thursday.

Kinnemore was no stranger to law enforcement in Polk County, according to arrest records. His record includes eight arrests, most recently Dec. 11 on drug charges.

This sounds shady to us!
