My brother's murder was on this site, I stumbled upon this site when i was having a difficult time understanding how my brother was murdered and FREDRICK ESPY III got off. He shot my brother in a fist fight. All I know is if you want to be a murderer, move to Alabama, get a concealed weapons license, cause an argument with anyone who doesn't agree with how you treat women and shoot them!!!! What the article did not mention was how my brother NEVER had a criminal record...EVER. How his fiance was pregnant with twins and lost them that same week as the shooting, How he was in college for THEOLOGY, how he was dedicated to the Big Brother Program and how someone had to tell his "little" which was the 8 year old boy his "big brother was shot. How we came nothing, where we were assumed not to succeed. But my little brother did!!!! There is a scholarship in my brother's name for social work. Admittedly, we have worked very hard not to be a statistic but this murder has made my brother exactly that. We had no money at the time for an attorney but he and his family knew a lot of people in that court process. I've almost lost my mother and myself to suicide over this. FREDRICK ESPY killed my brother and his unborn children with one bullet. My life, my families life, since that day has NEVER felt like LIFE. Please, anyone who can help me understand how this was possible, how can someone can kill someone with a gun in a fist fight against someone who had no weapon. And why did he try to run after shooting my brother if it was self defense? I have ANGER inside me that i never knew I could possess, maybe i need to go to Alabama and invite that murderer there. We could get into a fist fight and he could put me out of this 12 year misery and hell he has put me through. Thomas Joseph Burton was my little brother and i raised him to become a wonderful man, there was NO SITTING OR STANDING ROOM AT HIS FUNERAL, over 10 busses of students came from Alabama to DC for his funeral. A world renounced pastor cancelled a meeting with Nelson Mandela to be able to speak at my brother's funeral. We have never been rich with money only rich with love. I don't know what will come of this, i just pray it will help me understand. Thanks for reading. G. Burtron.
