Takeoff Murder Witnesses Not Talking

Last week two arrests were made in the murder of Migos rapper Takeoff [click here if you missed that]. 

Apparently the arrest was made WITHOUT the help of the dozens of witnesses at the scene of the crime...

From ABC 13
A month to the day that Migos rapper Takeoff laid dying after shots were fired with dozens of people around him, police appear to have solved a puzzle that they say became tough to put together once all of those witnesses escaped without giving investigators a statement HPD Homicide Division Sgt. Michael Burrow told reporters.
"Literally every single one of those people left the scene without giving a statement to police," Burrow said, adding that they had to track down people later that night and in the days after.
Still, police want to speak with witnesses.
"It's important that those people come forward, and we're still looking to talk to a lot of those people," Burrow said.
According to Burrow, they had to rely on a "large volume" of video surveillance evidence, as well as cell phone videos and audio that they examined later on.
"We had to sift through all of that and use physical evidence, and use shooting reconstruction, and confirm a lot of our ballistic evidence. What weapons were involved?" Burrow said. "And through that, we were able to deduce that Patrick Clark is the legal shooter in the case. That's why he's being charged with murder."

I keep saying that the real killer is already dead. HPD just doesn't want the bad look of having a high profile murder that went unsolved. Clark is just the fall guy.

The black community knew that's why it took so long to find the shooter. My problem is that the Amigo's knew who shot their relative/groupmate and didn't say nothing.

Because it was someone in their entourage. Takeoff was just caught in the crossfire. An accident.

11:04 the Migos split up. So Offset didn't know because he wasn't there. He was smart and left because he felt like the label was shady, paid to get out his contract and got out. That's when the remaining two formed "Unc and Phew". So Quavo knew what happened , and said nothing as you stated since he was there, but Offset was long gone from that crew.

When you are a celeb or successful period, you can't go back to hoods to hangout. Slim and Baby go to New Orleans to pass out turkeys for Thanksgiving, but you don't see Slim talking about going to hang out in the hood, he only talks about how he pulled himself up out of the hood. Furthermore, when you are a celeb, you have to have the very best armed security, not friends, family, or folks from the hood. Run you security like you run your business, tight.

Fans claim they "love you", but not enough to help point out who did it?
