Shreveport,LA — Update:
Shreveport Police believe they have caught the correct suspect, but according to 53 year old, Carl Scott's brothers, they don't have the whole story.
They don't deny that Scott beat up the victim, but they claim it was because she came after him with a knife. They also deny that a rape occurred, stating that it wasn't Scott's manner to act like that, although acknowledging that he did have a temper.
Scott's brothers are hoping, that as the investigation and court case go on, what they believe to be the truth will come out, and their brother will be able to go free.
