Foul Play Suspected In Case That Led To Police Killing 6-Year-Old Autistic Boy

Officials are now investigating the death of a 6-year-old autistic boy, shot by two Louisiana law enforcement officers. They want to find out if one of the killers had a grudge against the boy's father. The two city marshals from Marksville, Louisiana, remain in jail, each on $1 million bail.

Recently released body camera footage shows the boy's father, Chris Few, raising his hands in the air while Deputy Ward Marshals Derrick Stafford and Norris Greenhouse shoot at least 18 bullets at his car on Nov. 3. His son, Jeremy Mardis, died in the passenger's seat of his father's car after the officers reportedly shot him five times in the head and chest.

Few is still recovering in the hospital and has not yet been told that the officers killed his son. Few's attorney, Mark Jeansonne said, “This was not a threatening situation for the police."

State Police Superintendent Col. Mike Edmonson has suggested that Stafford and Greenhouse may have lied about serving a nonexistent warrant on Few when they began pursuing him the night of the incident.

Few's fiancee, Megan Dixon, said Greenhouse, her former classmate, had been sending her unwanted Facebook messages and visiting her home.

Edmonson said the body camera footage was "the most disturbing thing" he had ever seen. Dixon said “I told Chris and Chris confronted him about it and told him, ‘Next time you come to my house I’m going to hurt you.'"

Avoyelles Parish Sheriff Doug Anderson told CBS News "This is a small community, everybody knows everybody and it's a tragic situation. Everybody is paying the price."

Stafford has reportedly had a tumultuous relationship with residents, many of whom have accused him of fabricating arrest details and records and unnecessarily using a stun gun in the past.

Marksville Mayor John Lemoine said, “We have citizens that deserve to be served and protected by the badge. Currently, that’s not always happening."
