Ericka Weems, the sister of Cleveland director of scouting Brandon Weems, was found shot and killed in her home in Akron, Ohio, on Monday. There have been no arrests, no suspects, and a lot of unanswered questions in the case as police continue their investigation into the killing.
LeBron James, the Cavaliers, and others are looking to help find the suspect and justice for Ericka.
The Cavaliers released this statement through GM Koby Altman.
“The entire Cavaliers organization was terribly saddened to learn about the recent tragic death of Brandon Weems’ sister Ericka. Our hearts are heavy and filled with pain over this senseless act. We express our deepest condolences to Brandon, the entire Weems family, their loved ones, and the Akron community. We will be with Brandon throughout this extremely difficult time and will offer our assistance and resources to help find justice for Ericka.”
Brandon Weems is grieving and understandably angry at the situation.
According to the latest reports, Akron police have not made any arrests or publicly identified any suspects, and they are still searching for a motive for the killing, which appears to be a homicide.
LeBron and the Cavaliers have done their part to bring light to the situation, but the questions remain unanswered.
