Man Wanted in Death of Kalil McCoy Turns Self in

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office has confirmed that a second man wanted in connection with the death of Kalil McCoy has turned himself in.

JSO issued an accessory after the fact warrant for 20-year-old Jonathan Brooks. Police confirmed around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday that Brooks had turned himself in.

Police have already charged 19-year-old Frederick Lee Wade with manslaughter in the case, and are speaking to a still unnamed third suspect.

And while progress is being made in the case, Kalil McCoy's family is still outraged by her death.

"I don't want to hear nothing they've got to say because to me they're all bold-faced liars, and they will get their just due, every last one of them," said Lynnette Roebuck, Kalil's mother.

After Kalil's disappearance, Roebuck said all three young men now suspected in connection with her daughter's death told her personally they didn't know what happened to her.

"I go over in my mind that day, and the people I called to try and find her. And the people that I called were the people she was with," she said.

People she had known for most of her daughter's life. As police now search for Jonathan Brooks, she said members of her own family took the boy in when he was having family problems of his own years ago.

"This touches home not just for me, but for other people in my family who opened their door to this young man, and allowed him to come in and eat at their table," she said.

While she said all of them were quick to deny their involvement in Kalil's death, now that they've been named as suspects, she said not one has reached out to apologize.

"How can you care about my daughter if you haven't consoled me? Whether I'm mad or not, if you really cared, you would keep calling until you got through," she said.

Wednesday will mark one month since her daughter was killed.
