A North Carolina mother is clearing her son’s name from involvement in the murders of 14-year-old Lyric Woods and 18-year-old Devin Clark, and she’s not holding back.
Although police have not released the identity of the 17-year-old accused of killing Clark and Woods, social media have taken it upon themselves to accuse 17-year-old DonJae Clark of the murders, and his mother is not having it.
Tasha Echols took to Facebook Monday in a social media post and said her son, 17-year-old DonJae Clark, “had nothing to do with no murder.”
Echols said that her son had a football game the night Clark and Woods went missing, and her son left the game with her.
“If you did your research you would see he had a Football game and left the game with me..,” Echols said in her Facebook post.
According to Echols, her son is an “honor roll student” and “doesn’t hang out in the streets”, and she will not tolerate anyone slandering her son’s name without her saying her peace.
Echols encouraged anyone to call Burlington Police Department if they had concerns about the murders of Clark and Woods and “stop putting up fake sht,” concerning her son.
