Did Cody Latimer have a reason he went crazy? According to reports, he may have been confronting a person at the table who allegedly sexually assaulted his four-year-old son.
Latimer allegedly threatened his friend with a gun and discharged the weapon after an argument from a poker game early Saturday morning.
“At the hearing, Latimer’s attorney, Harvey Steinberg, told the court that he has been contacted by law enforcement concerning an investigation of a sexual assault of Latimer’s 4-year-old son that was allegedly perpetrated by one of the individuals at that poker game,” according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and John Keim.
Schefter noted, “The allegations concerning the shooting incident occurred at about the same time and location of the alleged sexual assault.”
I am not saying this justifies anything, but that is his little boy. According to reports, Latimer was playing poker at his friend’s house Roderick English. There were about 7 to 8 others there as well. An argument broke out between Latimer and another person during the game. Latimer reportedly left, then came back with a firearm.
The report also says, Cody Latimer pulled out a gun and threatened to kill everyone, per English.
I am not sure what is going to happen with this case, but if his son was sexually assaulted by someone at the party, I can understand the anger. I am not saying he took the corrective measures to handle the situation, but you have to remember there was drinking involved.
Please keep Latimer and his son in prayers.
