A TEXAS MOTHER SAYS THAT SHE BELIEVES THAT HER SONS DEATH WAS NOT A SUICIDE.
Dear Tory Lowe,
On January 4, 2013, my son Marcus Anthony Merritt wife called & told me she thinks Marc just did something to himself. I asked why she’d think that. She said they were texting & now he doesn’t answer. I told her u know that’s how he is nothing strange about that. She told me she called her parents to go check on him & she was leaving work. I remained on the phone with her but, heard no obvious outside noises. She supposedly arrived home, parents are there but, again I heard nothing.
After a few minutes, I heard her ask, he did & her step Mother took the phone & said Royce I’m sorry. I got to Louisiana the next day & her story changed, she said they were talking, she heard a loud noise then Marc wouldn’t respond. This happened on a Friday, that Monday I stood next to my child on a gurney & couldn’t understand why there was no visible damage to him if he shot himself. Two weeks later is when I began my quest for the truth. I found out the coroner never saw him, he went from home to funeral home, no autopsy, funeral home director told me he saw no evidence of a gunshot wound.
I’ve contacted over 600 people trying to get help all to no avail. The state of Louisiana is letting them get away with murder, the FBI told me they don’t investigate murder WTF, they do on TV. Marc was exhumed in 2016 & numerous debilitating drugs were found in his system, including Fentanyl, he didn’t use drugs. There was no evidence of a gunshot wound and I believe something was put in his food to render him unable to defend himself. I don’t know how the rest of the drug cocktail was rendered.
THE FOLLOWING IS A REPORT SUMMARY THAT WAS DONE BY MARK HARPER OF MJA INVESTIGATIONS:
I was asked by Mark Harper of MJA Investigations to review the crime scene photos of Marcus Merritt Sr. because of my scientific background. Below is a summary of my educational background along with my findings.
I received a BS in electrical/mechanical engineering from Boston University. Upon graduation, I furthered my education and received a JD from New England School of Law. I am not a practicing attorney nor did I take any state bar exam, but I did take and pass the patent bar exam. I currently hold the position of a patent agent at an intellectual property law firm in the state in which I reside.
My first thoughts when I examined the picture of Mr. Merritt sitting on the floor alongside his bed was that the scene seemed staged, and I also question if there was some type of struggle before his death. This is definitely not a scene one would see if a person committed suicide. The lamp on the night table is turned over and the amount of blood on the bed makes me think that he bled out on the bed and was placed on floor.
The only thing that was forgotten was that if Mr. Merritt did in fact commit suicide, why is the gun laying on the bed. With all the blood that he lost, he would not have had the ability to move from the bed and sit in an upright position on the floor.
I would also like to add that his body would be in the same location where the suicide occurred with the gun more than likely in his hand or alongside the body. In viewing the other crime scene photos, I noted the lack of brain matter and pieces of skull which would have clearly been shown if this was a gunshot wound to the head. I notice no exit wound in the photo of the head and the blackness in the mouth would in my opinion be blood clotting from the blood from the mouth/nose, something which occurs during any traumatic injury in which an artery is ruptured.
In my professional career I tend to rely on physics – a subject most tend to avoid though we use it daily. In this case and I will rely on Newton’s third law – motion in connection with the blood spray or lack thereof. One must remember that motion in physics works in the opposite direction.
I refer back to the photo of the bed and the amount of blood on the bed to determine whether there was an exit wound and the direction in which the gun was fired. Two terms often used by forensics experts are “back spatter” and “forward spatter. (See picture below) Back spatter occurs when the blood flows out the opposite direction the impact occurred. Forward spatter occurs when the blood travels in the same direction as the source of energy or force which caused the spatter. Forward spatter occurs when there is an exit wound as opposed to backspatter which occurs when there is no exit wound.Since there appears to be no exit wound in the pictures I reviewed, one would say the blood on the bed is back spatter.
Unfortunately, this is not the case here as evidenced from the picture above. As such, I do not believe Mr. Merritt’s death was caused by a gunshot wound. The images in the pictures bring me back to the death scene photos of Nicole Brown Simpson. Though there was much more blood in her case, the pattern of the blood is similar to Mr. Merrit’s pictures.
It is my opinion that the Mr. Merritt’s death was not self-inflicted but caused by blunt force trauma and the object used was more along the lines of a knife. I also feel that Mr. Merritt knew his assailant as the crime scene photos lean towards a crime of passion murder.
