Here’s one of the oddest stories you’ll read today….
After Otis Tyrone McKane murdered an officer in San Antonio (Det. Benjamin Marconi), married, he was spotted at the Bexar County Courthouse getting married as he was the subject of a massive manhunt, according to official records obtained by mySA.com. God knows if the woman he had married was aware that he was on the run from police at the time. They did however, obtained a magistrate’s waiver from the customary 72-hour waiting period after a marriage license is issued, so I’m thinking his wife may be backing out of that agreement pretty soon…
Regardless, he gave an interview with the media shortly afterwards, and things got even weirder then.
As BizPacReview reproted:
“I lashed out at someone who didn’t deserve it.”
That’s what Otis Tyrone McKane, the man who was arrested for the murder of San Antonio police detective Benjamin Marconi, told reporters.
McKane, 31, claimed he gunned down Marconi because he was upset about an ongoing child custody battle, MySA.com reported.
“I’ve been through several custody battles, and I was upset at the situation I was in, and I lashed out at someone who didn’t deserve it,” McKane said before he was booked. “I just want to see my son.”

I’m sorry too – I’m sorry that the officer didn’t get to blow him away first.
McKane had shot officer Marconi completely unprovoked. Marcono had pulled over another driver and been issuing him a traffic citation as McKane ran up behind him, shooting him twice in the head. The cop hadn’t done as much as make eye contact with McKane.
And his excuse is that he was upset, so he randomly went out and shot a cop twice in the head? Pathetic. There’s no way this ass is going to be seeing his kids now.
