Grant’s body was discovered in some bushes near his family’s apartment at the Lake Vista apartment complex at 2281 Sherman Circle North, two days after he went missing.

According to the arrest report for Clements, he was angry that Grant had been intimate with his ex-girlfriend, Parisien, and he said: “murder was coming soon.”

The arrest report says surveillance tape shows the attack and shows the suspects moving the body after Grant was stabbed in the neck with a knife and in the chest with a sword.

The report says one of the suspects was a lookout while Grant was attacked by two others.
