New Information Emerging in Veteran Beating Death in Spokane
SPOKANE, Wash. - New information is emerging about what might have happened the night a World War II veteran was beaten to death by two 16-year-old boys in Spokane.
Court documents released Wednesday say officers who arrested suspect Kenan Adams-Kinard at a home on Monday also found what appeared to be a confession letter signed by the youth.
The letter claims Adams-Kinard called Delbert Belton and arranged to buy crack cocaine from him. The letter also contends the two suspects punched Belton three times before taking his wallet and another ounce of crack from his pockets.
Spokane police have said there is no evidence that Belton was a drug dealer.
Meanwhile, Belton will be buried with full military honors Thursday at Greenwood Memorial Terrace in Spokane. The public is invited.
