Racist Materials
Found in Murder Suspect's Bedroom

Investigators say they found white supremacist materials in the bedroom of Brandon McInerney, who is charged with the murder of a gay classmate, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

Sketches of swastikas and other drawings depict a "racist skinhead philosophy of the variety espoused by Tom Metzger, David Lane, and others," Ventura County, Calif., senior deputy district attorney Maeve Fox said in a statement.

McInerney, 14, is accused of shooting Lawrence King, 15, during class in February at E.O. Green Junior High School in Oxnard, Calif. McInerney is being tried as an adult for the slaying, with a hate-crime enhancement.

Deputy public defender William Quest, McInerney's attorney, said the disclosure about the racist materials was a stunt to intensify the public's feelings against his client.

"There is no evidence Brandon was ever in a gang, no evidence he had any gang tattoos," Quest said in the article. "His best friends at school were black and Hispanic .... This is a stretch by the prosecution." He added that McInerney has shown an interest in German military history, according to United Press International. (Michelle Garcia, The Advocate)
