Chris Lane: Australian Murdered in Duncan Oklahoma – 3 Black or 1 White or Something, and Two Blacks

Chris Lane (22) was an Australian man in Oklahoma on a baseball scholarship. Last Friday he was jogging, and this morning I reported that he was allegedly gunned down by three “boys.” I have three photos of the three “not-yet-legal-adults-with-hearts-of-stone” charged. Two are Black and one could be something else, or he could be Black. The ages are 17, 15 and 16. The 17-year-old is charged as “an accessory to the killing.” The 15-and-16 year-olds have been charged with first-degree murder. The names: James Edwards (15) – First Degree Murder, Chancey Luna (16) – charged with First Degree Murder (suspected of firing the “fatal shot”) – no bail allowed for those two. Michael Jones the 17 year old has bail set at $1 Million.

World Net Daily headlines that the three men are Black but I haven’t heard that officially confirmed. They also have identified two of the not-yet-legal-adults-with-hearts-of-stone” differently from the Australian website. I don’t know which report is the correct report.

Chancey Luna’s Facebook Page seems to show him giving what may be the Crips hand sign. Luna’s mother said her son was at home at the time and “My son is not that way. My son is a good kid.”

Surveillance cameras from the area help police find the three. The early reports said the handgun used has not been found but ammo for that particular weapon was in the car of one of the “not-yet-legal-adults-with-hearts-of-stone” along with a rifle.

Chris Lane was a student at East Central University in Ada, Oklahoma. He was in Duncan visiting his girlfriend, Sarah Harper:

They shot Lane in the back as he was jogging. They were “bored,” said one of the boys, “we decided to kill someone for fun.” According to Danny Ford, the Chief of Police of Duncan, said a Facebook page for one of the alleged murderers read “Bang. Two drops in two hours.” Source
