Staying true to Rashawn.
The police aren't happy about it, said Mervyn Marcano, 20, cofounder of the Rashawn Brazell Memorial Fund. "They feel they're doing everything they can, but his mother feels differently," he said.
Marcano and others were suspicious of news reports in March that police were suddenly interested in talking to an unnamed ex-boyfriend in connection with Brazell's murder. "It's an old lead," Marcano said. "Desire told us she had given that name to police long ago." A New York City police department spokesman later denied that authorities were now looking for the man in question.
