Accused Murderer Of NYC Gay Man Claims He Doesn't Have A Problem With Gay People
Accused anti-gay murderer Elliot Morales plead not guilty on Tuesday in the May shooting death of 32-year-old Mark Carson in New York City.
Morales is claiming he has no issue with gay people, saying, according to a statement made to police:
“I am not gay. I don’t have a problem with gay people. I have lots of gays in my life."
In his rambling statement, he told police his life was filled with problems, with a sister who is a “crackhead” who had a boyfriend who “raped her neice.”
“I am homeless and I stay with friends once in while,” he said. “My family life is f---ed up, which is why I drink.”
He also said he was distraught about what his actions would do to his “sickly” mother.
“This is gonna kill my mom…I always hurt her and make bad decisions in life and make her cry,” he said, before asking, “Did someone die? Did a child die?”
This, of course, all comes after Morales laughed after telling police he shot Carson in the face. He also released a statement saying, “I killed him. He was trying to act tough so I shot him.”
Morales faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of murder as a hate crime.
