Man arrested in (White Supremacist Richard) Barrett Homicide

A state inmate on supervised release is facing a murder charge in the slaying of white supremacist Richard Barrett, 67, whose burned and stabbed body was discovered in his Pearl-area home.

Vincent McGee, 23, who lives with his parents on the same street as Barrett, was arrested around 5 p.m. Thursday at his sister's home in Pearl, Sheriff Ronnie Pennington said.

Barrett's body had multiple stab wounds to the neck and blunt-force trauma to the head; 35 percent of his body had been burned, Pennington said.

While McGee is African American, authorities have not said Barrett's racial beliefs were a motive in his slaying.

Of course they're not going to say race played a role in this. That would be a hate crime, no?

Puff, your link leads to the story about the lesbian who is suing. I'll look for another one.

The little I know about Mr. Barrett is that he's an attorney. He's also a highly decorated Vietnam War hero. If this isn't about race why then not print "Decorated War Hero and lawyer burned and mutilated by a paroled felon"?

Maybe this man wasn't well liked for his beliefs, but he sure didn't deserve to be murdered like that.

Awww, that O.K. Puff because there's an update anyway.

Three more people have been charged in regards to the murder of Richard Barrett. A man and woman with the last name of Dent are accessories. Vincent McGee's stepfather is also charged with acessory after because he helped McGee either start the fire to cover up Barrett's murder or plain just drove him there and picked him up.

Interesting now at this link it says the DA says they do NOt believe this WAS NOT a hate crime. Huh? Maybe it's a misprint? The coroner said Richard Barrett was stabbed to death before the fire was started.

DA is also not sure what day Vincent McGee the convinct recently paroled will be in court? What's going on down there?

One of many a Blog out there disputing hate crimes. What is a hate crime? Did a guy who was just paroled in February stab another man over 35 times because he owed him money for yard work? Why would a white supremacist hire a black man to do yard work for him?

Is Vincent McGee a memeber of the street gang Vice Lords? Do his tattoos prove it?

You stab someone 35 times and set them on fire I'd figure you have some hate in your heart. A motive for this horrific murder should be coming about fairly soon the author figures.

Charges have been upgraded against Vincent McGee who murdered then set on fire Richard Barrett.

There's a dispute (of course) as to what led to McGee murdering Mr. Barrett. He didn't pay him for mowing the grass? OR as McGee is claiming Mr. Barrett made sexual davances towards him.

According to McGee he went to Barrett's house to use his computer so he could check his Facebook account. While there he said Barrett made the advances.

A caucasian racist lets a black man use his computer? Really? That's sketchy.
