Patrick Xavier Clark is out on a $1 million bail but not as a completely free man as he will be under house arrest and also denounce drugs and firearms until the trial.
Takeoff was murdered on 1st November 2022. Shortly after he was buried, authorities declared Patrick as the gunman; meanwhile, Patrick continue to maintain his innocence. Some of his friends even claim he is being framed.
To plead his case, Patrick asked for $5K to hire private investigators to look into his case and he was granted. Patrick took the fight further and pleaded with the court to slash his $2 million bail in half and that was also granted, now he can be regarded as a free man while he and his lawyers prepare for the trial.
Media Take Out Reports;
Patrick Clark, the man accused in the murder of Migos rapper Takeoff is out on a $1 million bond.
Takeoff was shot to death in the early morning hours of Nov. 1 outside a bowling alley in downtown Houston after a dice game erupted into violence. He was an innocent bystander but died from a stray bullet.
Some of Clark’s friends told outlet the Daily Beast that Clark is being framed for the killing.
“I know him. He’s not like that. I honestly feel like they got the wrong guy,” said one friend who knew Clark from his strip club. “He doesn’t get mad or hostile. He’s very nice and thoughtful. That’s all I have to say. I feel he is being framed.”
Takeoff was hanging out with Quavo and Jas Prince, who was celebrating his birthday, the night of his death. Several videos floated around on the internet as fans tried to solve the case.
With Clark still lauding his innocence, it means there’s a chance he is not our guy. If he isn’t, then it means the chances of catching the real killer are gone already. But while he is still singing his innocence, authorities are positive, he is our guy with no doubt based on the evidence accumulated.
