    Andre Jackson, suspect in Josue Flores' killing, gives note to KHOU in exclusive jailhouse interview
    [...]

    Jackson says he was framed for the murder of Josue Flores, 11, who was stabbed more than 20 times walking home from school in 2016.

    During the conversation, Jackson said there was no motive for him to murder Flores and believes the district attorney’s office rushed to an arrest because the case had gone cold.

    Jackson said no DNA evidence was recovered linking him to Josue Flores following his first arrest and believes any evidence gathered recently was planted.

    [...]

    The inmate gave Dougherty a scrap of paper with handwritten notes elaborating on a lack of racial diversity within the Houston Police Department which may have played a part in his arrest.

    KHOU Legal Analyst Gerald Treece says, from a lawyer’s perspective, nothing good can come from Jackson speaking publicly without an attorney present.

    He explains anything he says can be used against him in court.

    "Maybe this will be his defense at trial, but if it’s not, the government has another inconsistent statement this man has made," said Treece.

    Well, duh. Obviously there was no motive to stab a 11-year-old boy more than 20 times, besides pure malice and perversity. He was coming home from school, minding his own business, not causing any problems, not bothering anyone. So no, there is no possible motive to this awful crime. Which really doesn't prove that this dude didn't kill him. He probably thought that he got away with it at first and that there was no way LE would ever bring it up again. He annoys me so much. Excuses and more excuses.
