Clark/Needham - Mistaken Identity or Conspiracy?
Wearing a hoodie, walking away from Norris appliance, would it be that difficult to mistake Clark for Needham?
Clark ended up using the .45 in a robery in Haughton, which leaves limited possibilities:
1. The eyewitnesses, in good faith, identified the wrong man.
2. Needham and Clark have a connection that hasn't been discovered yet and conspired with one another on the killings, or at least in sharing the same weapon. Clark's criminal history is in Texas, so that may be questionable.
3. Clark somehow got possession of the gun from Needham after the Norris murders.
I'm sure the investigators will come up with the right answer, and I'm sure they are leaning on the woman below, Jasmine Billingsley, Clark's girlfriend, for any knowledge she has. If she is smart, she will cooperate to her fullest. She doesn't look too happy in the mug shot.
To answer some of the comments from the last post, this is not a criticism of BCPD at all. I believe they acted in good faith and apprehended the person they thought was responsible. He may yet prove to be.
Both Needham and Clark are currently at Bossier Max.
