Akron mother wants son’s slaying revisited after federal inmate claims involvement in Facebook video. Reported by Stephanie Warsmith. A grieving Akron mother thought she had received justice for her slain son, with the man who accepted responsibility behind bars. Now, she isn’t so sure, thanks to a Facebook Live video posted by another inmate in federal prison who claims he was involved. Joe L. Fletcher, 30, of Akron, who is incarcerated in a federal prison in Atlanta, made a 50-minute live video Saturday in which he bragged about being involved in multiple shootings, including 19-year-old LaDonte Smith’s slaying. Smith was found dead with a gunshot wound to the head in a car in the driveway of a house on Wall Street in North Akron on Sept. 26, 2010.
