“There were several times during the interview with facts changed, the story changed,” Gwinnett Police Detective Matthew Kenck said in court.
Kenck described a search warrant executed in their Lawrenceville apartment the day after the murder. Police believe the suspects hid the murder weapon and magazine inside pancake mix boxes in kitchen cabinets, according to Channel 2. Three of the four pizza boxes delivered that night were behind washers and dryers.
Hours before the murder, investigators testified that photos of the suspects were posted to Facebook, allegedly showing them posing with the same gun used in the murders with readable serial numbers solidifying that claim. Ballistic tests haven’t yet been returned on the gun.
Channel 2 reported the family of Lofton approached Varnadore outside the courtroom, where they said they were sorry for their loss.
“It’s hard. It’s stressful for both families, especially for a 14-year-old boy,” said Lofton’s sister, Porsha Porter.
