Police video leads to questions in investigation of journalist's murder

A secret police video obtained by The Chauncey Bailey Project raises questions about the involvement of Yusuf Bey IV in the murder of journalist Chauncey Bailey. In the video, Bey IV "describes Bailey's shooting in detail...then, laughing, he denies he was there, and boasts that his friendship with the case's lead detective protected him from charges." Devaughndre Broussard was charged with the murder of Bailey, but his trial has not yet been scheduled. Documents reviewed by The Chauncey Bailey Project call into question the accuracy of "summation of evidence" used by the lead detective in charging Broussard, and it does not appear that the police raised questions about the inconsistencies between the statements of Bey IV and Broussard.
