Hundreds expected at McMillian funeral

Chicot Memorial

Hundreds of people are expected at the memorial service tomorrow for Marco McMillian. The 34-year-old was the victim of a murder, for which Lawrence Reed of Shelby remains in custody. McMillian was running for mayor of Clarksdale on a platform of reducing crime and improving employment. He was one of the first openly gay candidates for public office in Mississippi and his family has called for an investigation into whether his murder qualifies as a hate crime. The memorial service is set for tomorrow at 10am at Coahoma County Community College.
