"They're going to look it over and see if it fits a hate crime," Police Chief Alton McWaters said Tuesday morning.
Police investigator David Martinez said he
believes a group of white men took Johnson to a party, beat him up and then dumped him out in the country.He
was found in a ditch near the road in east Texas.
I think more than one person saw what happened but were not sure if one or more took him out to the county," McWaters
told the Texarkana Gazette
