Tyre Nichols’ alleged Demetrius Haley wife claim explored
While the authorities continue to investigate the tragic death of Tyre Nichols many people believe that there was a personal motive behind the brutal attack on him.
Moreover, they speculated that Nichols was in a relationship with the former wife of police officer Demetrius Haley.
In addition, CBS recently confirmed that Nichols worked at FEDEX where Haley’s ex-wife was also reportedly working.
If this story is true about a baby mama working at FedEx and being the “reason” that murderer Demetrius Haley targeted #TyreNichols, I don’t think I have words to properly express my disgust.
No reason is acceptable but boyyy would that story be even worse.
