Court: Suspects Appeared In Threatening Video

November 25, 2018

“Murder suspects appeared in a threatening music video played to a court hearing of the knife killing of teenager Lyrico Steede,” according to the latest report from the Nottingham Post.

The report said, “Christian Jameson told the court that he was in the background while the lyrics were being chanted by Kesharn Campbell, 19. Lyrico, 17, was stabbed several times after being chased out of a Bulwell park on February 13. He died eight days later in hospital.

“Nottingham Crown Court heard that one line from the song went: ‘Splash three holes in a man’s back.’ Jameson was asked what the line meant and he told the court: ‘Splash means stabbing, three holes, stab holes.’

“But he said the video had been made before the attack on Lyrico. He was asked by his QC Vanessa Marshall: ‘Were those lyrics based on fiction or truth?’ He told her: ‘Fiction.’

“The four-minute video has a drum and piano backing with words chanted in what is known as ‘drill music.’ Masked and hooded youths can be seen in the film, which was shot in parts of the city.

“The word ‘ops’ means ‘opposition,’ said Jameson, who has just had his 18th birthday and can be named in public for the first time.

“His address was given as Kirkbride Court, Chilwell. It also refers to NG6, the Basford postcode, and goes on: ‘Run man down. Stabbed them in their organs.”

Five teenagers deny the murder of the 17-year-old Bermudian, and the trial continues in the Nottingham Crown Court in the UK.
