Pop Smoke Murder Suspect Confessed To Police Plant Disguised As Gang Member
Recently, it was reported that the 15-year-old suspect who had been arrested for his connection to the fatal robbery had allegedly confessed to a cellmate at a juvenile detention center that he was the one who ultimately shot Pop Smoke. To the teenager’s chagrin, his conversation with his cellmate was recorded and used as evidence against him. Now, new details have emerged from a preliminary hearing for Corey Walker, the 20-year-old suspect in the case. Surprisingly, he also allegedly confided in someone who he believed to be his cellmate.
Unfortunately for Walker, the cellmate who he reportedly admitted his guilt to was a police plant who was posing as a gang member. According to Complex, LAPD detective Carlos Camacho testified in court last week that Walker told the plant that he was a member of the Hoover Criminals, he had driven to the Airbnb that Pop was renting on February 18, 2020, with four “youngsters,” and he brought along gloves, masks, and a police scanner to help avoid the authorities.
