Relatives of Pop Snoke Murder Defendant Want to Meet with His Parents

Written by on June 9, 2021

It seems that relatives of the only adult suspect in the murder trial of rapper Pop Smoke are requesting to speak with Pop’s parents. According to the New York Daily News, the family of Corey Walker, the 20-year-old suspect in the case, has announced via Walker’s lawyer that they wish to convey their sympathies to Pop Smoke’s family in person.

“The Walker family has asked me to contact the victim’s family so that they might speak privately. I hope to reach out to the family soon,” said Christopher Darden, Walker’s attorney. When asked for commentary, Pop Smoke’s mother, Audrey Jackson, seemed unsure of how to feel about the request. “This is new information to me,” the schoolteacher told The News. “I’m working on a lesson plan right now. That is my focus. I really can’t say.”

Darden did add that he is aware that the request is a heavy ask of Pop’s family, saying, “They might need time. I will also understand if [his mom] is not inclined to have that conversation. Everything we have done and said has been done and said while keeping in mind the great respect we have for the victim and the victim’s family.”
