HOMERVILLE — The family of slain Homerville resident and Morehouse College student Clay Cross is asking state Attorney General Sam Olens to delay the trial.

Their request is an accusation that there is more to the crime than just the murder of their son.

“We feel that there’s a bigger picture here that needs to be exposed. Basically, public corruption,” Cross’ step-father, Lindsay Scott, stated in a report from WALB.  Scott is the former Georgia football star.

The incident involved Cross’ shooting outside of a Homerville nightclub, Club 912, in May of 2014.  Reports state the shooting occurred as rival gang members fired a shot at each other.  The bullet ricocheted and hit Cross, killing him.

Three men were indicted on 48 counts related to the shooting, including gang-related charges.  Trevor Posey, Dexter Freeney, and Steven Monroe were charged.

Scott went on to state in the report that he and many others believe there is a culture in Clinch County and Homerville that allows gangs to get away with anything, using Scott’s words.  He says its been going on for some time and the family wants state law enforcement to investigate further.
