Chris "Kodar" Radok Becomes Charlotte's First Murder Victim of 2011
Christopher Radok arrived at his home on a snowy Monday to find convicted felon and repeat offender Antoine Young inside his East Charlotte home on Purser Drive.
Chris apparently entered his home and was confronted by Young who had a knife.
Police found Chris bleeding and unresponsive lying on the floor. He had been stabbed a number of times including what was noted as defensive wounds on his hands and arms and police knew the situation was grim. When paramedics arrived they could not revive Chris Radok and he was pronounced dead at the scene.
Antoine Young, 29, was arrested Monday evening at his father’s residence on Enfield Road and has been charged with the murder of Chris Radok. Young who has an arrest record stretching back nearly 14 years is well known to police who told Cedar Posts via emails that he is just another example of our failed justice system.
As word spread of Radok's murder Charlotte's news media pledged that his death would not become just another blip in the "Local Paper". WBT's Tara Servatius called on new Mecklenburg County District Attorney Andrew Murray to live up to his promise of aggressively prosecuting repeat offenders.
Cedar Posts joins the call for justice for Chris Radok and to permanently remove the human waste like Antoine Young from our streets.
