GUILTY!!!!! Antonio Walker found guilty of Murder of Paris Hamilton: EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW with ERICA HAMILTON

” What hurt me the most is hearing how he was shot for no reason and how the bullets went through his body.  It was hard to hear them say that he wanted his momma and that “it hurts”.  I feel like i felt every shot that went through him and to see the pictures…I don’t know”. – Erica Hamilton April 16, 2014 on attending the trial of Antoine Walker.

News posted on Facebook by his sister Erin. ( Picture Paris, Center, Erica (sister) Right above)

UPDATE:  Gawnews exclusive interview with Erica Hamilton. Erica is Paris’ sister.  She has faithfully and loyally appeared at every pretrial hearing or proceeding in Antoine Walker’s case (as have others) to make sure that Paris was not forgotten in the daunting process of criminal litigation.  Gawnews did an interview with her about her experiences.

Gawnews: How did you get the news that day when it happened?

Erica: His wife called me while i was at work.  I was the first person to be called.

Gawnews What were you told had happened?

Erica: She called me and said Paris got shot and i think he is dead.

Gawnews: That must have been devastating, what did you do?

Erica: I ran out of work. Jumped in my car and drove as fast as i could to French Quarter (Apartments)  (This is the site of the murder scene.)

Gawnews: Next question is when and where did you see Antonio Walker for the first time…what were you thinking…?

Erica:  The first time I saw him was at the court house…November 14. (the date of Walker’s first preliminary hearing in Court). I was thinking “I’m.gonna do something to him”  but when i saw him all I could do is scream.

Gawnews: Did he ever look at you or speak to you?

Erica:  He glanced over when I said something to him. I said  ” you burn in hell” That’s the only time he ever looked at me.”

Gawnews: Did Paris know Walker before that day?

Erica:  No I don’t think so. He knew Mel …. he was the cause of this

(Note: Mel was a witness to the killing and gave a statement to the police. However, he left the area and was not available for either the State or the Defense as a witness at the trial.)

Gawnews:  I know I saw you at the Courthouse many times in the pre-trial proceedings…what was that experience like…to be a family member of the victim following a case?

Erica:  It was hard. I felt like they where playing with me and my family’s emotions.  I just wanted it to to be over so my family could grieve. It was like it happened all over again.

They took forever.  I felt like they forgot about him (in) the news media.

Gawnews:  That must be difficult.

Erica: Yes it is.

Gawnews: Were there people who you felt cared about you and Paris’s family? What did they do?

Erica:  I can’t even say anyone.

Gawnews: What advise would you give to people who find themselves in your position as far as working with the police and prosecutor and courts?

Erica: Stay on the court… look up things. Think.  Ask about everything. You can never ask enough questions … stay on top of it. Do your own investigation. Find out who people are.

I looked at other cases my brother had and it all makes sense now. Like the case in Gardenside.. I knew it had something to do with this case. Remember when a guy was robbed and stabbed and he said Paris did it?  It all goes with this case.  That’s what him and Mel where arguing about …  him getting him kicked out his apartment.

Gawnews: What are you looking forward to Erica?

Erica: Justice. I want him to get the max.

Paris had a good heart. He didn’t like bullies and he always had a smile on his face no matter what. If you had a problem,  he would always listen and give you the best advice.

Gawnews: Ok. Thanks Erica for sharing your story

Prosecutor Hijinks in Jefferson County Murder Case

The details would be hilarious….if it weren’t so pathetic.  Prosecutors played ‘hide’ the evidence with the defense. Of course the judge doesn’t declare a mistrial….Heck…I am sure the defense can ‘adjust’ to the fact the prosecuting star witness originally told a different story.   The detail of the prosecutor finding the ‘missing’ statement in  a truck’ is the funniest of funny jokes.  Ha ha ha! Here is an excerpt from the CJ story:

The defense has told the current jury that Dejuan Hammond is the victim of overzealous and unscrupulous investigators, bent on convicting him of the high-profile killing, no matter the cost.The years-long court proceedings have been fraught with allegations of prosecutorial misconduct and witness coercion. Shouse has blamed Louisville Metro Police Detective Roy Stalvey and former prosecutor Tom Van De Rostyne.The current prosecutors, Elizabeth Jones Brown and James Lesousky, apparently learned of the 2009 interview Friday. Shouse was cross-examining Princess Bolin then and mentioned the two statements she was known to have given: one in June 2011 and the second the following month.  Stalvey noted to Jones Brown and Lesousky that there was a third statement, the one given in August 2009, just months after Sheckles’ murder.Prosecutors scrambled during the weekend to track down the interview. Stalvey apparently found a copy in his truck Sunday, according to prosecutors’ statements in court Monday morning.”

GOLIATH also find it oh so very funny that the prosecutors blames it all ALL of it on ‘bad guy’ their predeccessor an former prosecutor De Rostyne.  “This is a residue of Mr. Van De Rostyne,” Shouse told the judge.

It was NOT explained how the evil Mr. Van De Rostyne managed to  plant the statement in Det. Stalvey’s truck and Mr. Lesousky’s office.  Weird huh?

Here is a LINK to the whole funny funny story.

Weekend Inspiration: JEFFERSONVILLE “BRING YER GUNS TO THUNDER” vs. Johnny Cash

In a special dedication to Jeffersonville’s invitation to bring yer Guns to THUNDER OVER LOUISVILLE we dedicate this song.  It was pretty funny… Louisville FBI release MEMO scares hell out of all and the many,  by saying DEADLY gang of Louisville Middle Schoolers is stealing GUNS off trains what run throught the West END of Louisville and are planning an ‘EVENT’ for their big GANG at THUNDER OVER LOUISVILLE.  Meanwhile here come CITY OF JEFFERSONVILLE….just when peoples is scared up good and say BRING YE GUNS to THUNDER O’r LOUISVILLE!!! HA HA HA!!

Here what Republican Mayor’s City attorney and sometime guest of Gawnews say, (according to the NT) “Merkley said the city has banned weapons from Thunder for a few years now, but this is the first year he’s had any response. “I would think it’s because the city publicized the list and the preparations for Thunder this year more than any year,” he said. Merkley said he was not aware there was an issue until last night, but he removed the item from the list Thursday morning to abide by state law.“Nobody brought it up,” he said. Officials’ oversight of the law in the last few years was a mistake, he said.“I don’t think the Thunder committee realized that the law had changed in 2011 that basically prohibited local governments from regulating the possession of firearms,” Merkley said.

GOLIATH loving this whole Idea…. We gonna have 1000′s of ARMED REDNECKS DRUNKED UP AS HELL down on the River..all excited by Fireworks and Fancy Planes and the City say “SURE…Bring yer Guns PEople!!”  That so GREAT!!  But…in honor of all this Here the GAWNEWS weekend inspirations:
