Early this week, we learned of a truly tragic story out of Louisville, KY. Teen brothers Larry Ordway and Maurice “Reese” Gordon Jr were found burned and stabbed in an alley this past Sunday. 25-year-old Brice Rhodes has been arrested in connection to the boys’ murder.
Here’s Rhodes in a music video with the boys, uploaded last summer.
Now, the case has gotten a lot of attention, not only due to the grisly nature of the crime but due to their mother’s odd behavior.
Here she is talking to local station WDRB.
Many have taken it upon themselves to dissect her social media presence, which is filled with guns, gangs, and other questionable content, including the following post which has since been removed:
On May 23, Wren hadn’t yet come forward to claim the boys’ bodies and was by all accounts blissfully unaware they were missing, much less dead.
Possibly due to the above post, folks had plenty to say about a GoFundMe page that popped up alleging to be for the boys’ funeral to the tune of $100k, however Wren told the local news she had nothing to do with the page and it disappeared shortly thereafter. Here’s an archived copy, including some of the critical comments.
That page was set up by someone named Paige Antoinette, and didn’t appear to have any connection to the boys or their mother. Doesn’t matter now, though, as it’s vaporized.
I’ll leave you with this raw video from the WDRB interview with the boys’ mother. All I can say is… may they rest.
