By The Blaze. Zavion Parker, 13, claimed he was grabbed by white supremacists — an adult and four younger males — after stepping off his school bus one day last month, after which he said they robbed, beat and held him at gunpoint at a property until he was able to escape.
And Parker said it was all because of his race. . .
But following a thorough investigation, Houston police are saying there’s no evidence to support the teen’s claims, KTRK-TV reported.
Police told the station the events as described did not occur and that the property Parker described had nothing to do with any crime.
Investigators have met with Parker’s mother, Michelle Lee, and community activists to tell them their findings, KTRK reported. (Read more from “Kid Claims White Supremacists Beat Him, Held Him at Gunpoint. Then Cops Take a Closer Look.” HERE)
Houston Police: Teen’s Story About Being Abducted by White Supremacists Wasn’t True
By ABC 13. . .We first brought you this story last month when 13-year-old Zavion Parker claimed he was grabbed by an adult and four young men after stepping off his school bus.
Zavion alleges he was robbed and beaten, all because of his race. He also said he was held at a property at gunpoint until he was able to escape.
Michelle Lee, the teen’s mother, told Eyewitness News her son managed to escape the gun-wielding kidnappers.
“The reason why they got him was because they said he was black. ‘You deserve to die.’ Exactly his words,” Lee told ABC13 in May. “Saying the dad had, like, a white muscle shirt on, and you could see it, was right here big as day. ‘I hate black people.'”
But after a thorough investigation, the Houston Police Department now says the events as described did not occur, that the property Parker described had nothing to do with any crime. (Read more from “Houston Police: Teen’s Story About Being Abducted by White Supremacists Wasn’t True” HERE)
