SpotemGottem's Attorney Plans To Beat Box Dallas PD In Court Over Murder Connection

Jacksonville, Florida rapper SpotemGottem — best

known for his hit single “Beat Box” — was

recently wanted for questioning by Dallas police in

connection to the murder of Reginald Agnew Jr. on

September 30, 2020.

However, SpotemGottem is reportedly no longer a

person of interest, with his attorney Raven Liberty

planning to file a lawsuit against the police department

citing “reckless, false statements,” according to sources.


Dallas homicide detective Patty Belew suggested a Triller

video proved SpotemGottem was guilty,

telling Fox4News, “That is very bold acting like, ‘Hey, we

did this. The police don’t even know who did this and

we’re going to get away with murdering this young man.’”


SpotemGottem raps in the unreleased song, “They don’t

even know who did it.”


After SpotemGottem’s name was cleared, his attorney

shared a statement with Complex calling out Patty Belew

and revealed the global damage caused to the 19-year-old

artist’s name.


“Over the last five days, multiple attempts to contact the

Dallas Police Department have been made in an effort to

address the reckless, false statements made by Dallas

Homicide Detective Patty Belew to Fox4News (KDFW)

regarding the involvement of Nehemiah Harden a/k/a

Spottemgottem in the death of Reginal Agnew, Jr,” the

statement began.

“Finally, this morning, the Dallas Police Department

made contact with my office confirming that Mr. Harden

is cleared in the investigation of the murder of Reginal

Agnew, Jr,” it continues. “The libelous statements made

by Det. Belew originated from her misunderstanding

about a YouTube “rap video” (in fact, a live stream) that

Det. Belew claimed was about the death of Reginald

Agnew, Jr and taunted the Dallas Police Department.


“Rather than conduct any investigation—a simple Google

search would have clarified her error—Det. Belew rushed

to speak to the press, openly disparaging my client and

linking him to a homicide. Further, Fox4News failed to

conduct any fact-checking prior to airing this malicious

television interview that named Mr. Harden as a key

figure in a murder investigation. To date, neither the

Dallas Police Department or Fox4News have issued an

apology or retracted the fraudulent and damaging story.

This follows days of requests to correct this shocking

recklessness as the story disparaging my client and

linking him to a murder spread like wildfire.

Liberty added, “This story has now gone viral around the

world with follow-on press reports in the United States,

United Kingdom, Netherlands, and India, in addition to

millions of impressions made through social media.

Given the irreparable harm to my client’s reputation, the

foot-dragging in acknowledging their outright false

statements, and the outright negligence by speaking

authoritatively on a homicide investigation prior to

conducting basic due diligence, I am in the process of

filing a lawsuit.” SpotemGottem should be able to

rebound from this and continue his rise.
