Lil Boosie

EXCLUSIVE: Alleged Hit Man Testifies In Boosie Trial; Tensions Flare Between Witness, Prosecutor


(AllHipHop News) Yesterday (May 7) marked the third day of testimony in the first degree murder-for-hire trial of rapper Torrence “Lil Boosie” Hatch.

The prosecution called their first witness of the day, Michael “Marlo Mike” Louding.

Louding is accused of being hired by Lil Boosie to murder Terry Boyd in October of 2009.

The Prosecution

The prosecution said in a taped confession that Louding admitted that Torence Lil Boosie paid him to kill Terry Boyd.

While on the stand, Louding testified he never told police he shot Terry Boyd.

Louding said he was at Torence Lil Boosie’s house on the night of the murder and the two never left.

Prosecution lawyer Dana Cummings originally said that she expected Michael Louding to lie.

After Louding’s initial statement on the stand, Cummings ordered that the interrogation tapes be played to refresh Louding’s memory.

On the interrogation tapes, Louding gave an account of what happened the evening Terry Boyd was killed.

He told investigators that he and Adrienne Pitman, along with Michael Judson, went to the residence of Boyd in a white SUV.

He said that he shot Boyd through a window, while he sat on the couch.

Louding said once he got back to Boosie’s house and the phone calls came in that Boyd was dead, Boosie gave him $2,800.

After the tapes were played Michael Louding was called back to the witness stand.

He again denied having any involvement in the murder of Terry Boyd or being hired by Lil Boosie.

“I never killed Terry Boyd and Mr. Hatch never paid me to kill Terry Boyd,” Louding said.

When further examined by the prosecution, Louding became uncooperative.

He blurted out “where the other eight hours of the tape?”

Cummings agreed that not all of the interrogation was recorded to which Louding replied: “sound like somebody trying to hide something.”

Cummings then played a recorded phone conversation between Louding and a man known by the nickname, “Donkey.”

During the conversation, Donkey tells Louding: “you’re gonna shake the spot ‘cause you young.”

Donkey also tells him: “The whole thing set up to take Hatch down. Ain’t nobody see you do nothing. All those tattoos and stuff…that’s what we do for the videos.”

At that point, Cummings ordered Michael Louding to be released from shackles and for him to reveal a tattoo of an AK-47 on his abdomen that read: “Yo’ Boosie Who’s Next.”

Louding said that the tattoo doesn’t mean anything and the fact that he originally stated that it meant he was a hitman for Boosie was because, “The crooked police made me say that.”

“They told me that Torrence [was] trying to kill me and the best way to deal with him is get him off the streets. They said he had a $25,000 contract on me.”

Louding explained that this was especially believable, because he had just gotten shot at a couple of nights before.

Louding also said that he felt close to Lil Boosie and Boosie was like a brother to him and he occasionally called Hatch “Pops.”

After becoming frustrated with her witness Dana Cummings asked Michael Louding one last time, “How did Terry Boyd die?”

Louding responded: “you live by it you die by it.”

Cummings then asked, “Mr. Louding, are you telling the court that you were lying when you said Torence Hatch paid you to kill Terry Boyd?”

Louding said, “Yes ma’am.”

At that point the prosecution had no further questions.

The Defense

During the defenses’s cross examination of Michael Louding, defense attorney Jason Williams played the interrogation tape again, but this time let it extend past the time it was originally cut off for the prosecution.

“He reads him his rights and says alright you’ve come a long way dog …Now get it straight with me. Now what does he need to get straight if he’s telling his own story. If he’s telling his own story he doesn’t have to get it straight; just tell us what happened,” William argued.

The tape showed law enforcement saying they were not going to charge Louding with murder, but with aggravated assault and terrorism even though he confessed to murder.

Then the tape reveal Louding saying, “This dude wanna kill me? He bout to get out of jail now?”

Attorney Williams argued that law enforcement lied to Louding in order to get him to cooperate with getting his client Lil Boosie charged with murder.

The detective admitted to lying to Louding about having evidence that linked him to the case.

He said that it is not unusual to lie to a suspect and that lying is a technique taught to interrogators.

The defense also had Louding confirm that Adrienne Pitman had an outstanding beef with Terry Boyd and that Michael “Ghost” Judson, now deceased, had been robbed for $720 by Terry Boyd.

Michael Louding also admitted to receiving treatment for the voices he hears in his head.

The prosecution challenged the notion that Louding hears voices, saying that he seemed very competent and never told investigators about his mental challenges.

In regards to Pitman’s and Judson’s disputes with Boyd, Cummings then asked Louding “Are you saying you had nothing to do with the six murders?”

Louding replied, “I’m not a murderer, I’m a lover.”

Michael Louding was then excused off the witness stand for the day.

Testimony continues today.

    • dominicancoke

      nah eye witnesses saw c murda pull a strap out and shoot the kid while he was being stomped but soulja slim got murder over a string of murders cop’s tie him too

  • Send his stupid ass to do more time….There are too many artists that knows how to act in public without causing harm to anyone…….Rappers need to stop fronting in their music and understand that in REAL LIFE there are things that you CANNOT do.

  • D

    $2,800 to take a life? If that part is true, then it doesn’t matter what son says on the stand.
    If it’s true of course he’s gonna perjure himself rather than to cooperate and be labelled a snitch.

    But, for me, if you kill another black man for $2k.. a damn mortgage and car note payment (combined) you deserve hell fire.

    • jamaicanbornanbreed

      whut i knw starving niggas dat would wipe out everyone in the crib..i’m talking ants, fly,roaches,goldfish…i’m talking bout deading everything for under a stack….i dont dare go round these niggas cuz when they get that powder in there nose they dnt knw how to act….but i’ve seen a dude lay a contract down for 500 dollars…true shit

      • Apollo Showtime

        I bet he doesn’t have a life either which is what D was saying, if you kill someone to get $500 then you don’t deserve to be a free man, ever. Life actually has a price to you? $500? That’s not even rent in a lot of places.

      • jamaicanbornanbreed

  • ANDRE SALAZAR

    NO evidence, NO case! Plain & simple! I’m tired on of this “white” system always trying to create lies to lock-up “black” men forever! This case went from weak to pathetic. The very 1st witness pretty much ruined the prosecutors case for them. #fail

  • WoW!
    Damn good reporting!

  • good shiit!!!
    i need an update every day!!!!!!

  • EL_BARK

    LOL only if the dumb ass aint get caught with the drugs,
    He would have been home in a two piece instead of owning the man
    6 plus.

    But this niggah is walking……………

    This niggah pull an b sigel out on the DA, lmao

    The lil niggah said i called boosie my pops,

    All i know the DA, is real salty,

    No way he gets convicted!!!!!!!!!!!!??????
    And if the DA knew the kid was going to lie, rather then say fuk it,
    Drop the charges, they just lost ALL credibility.

    I bet this DA is going to be looking for an new job soon.

    But i wont put it past the DA, that they lied or trick the youngin up,
    DA do the shet all the time, & its fuk upncops are alkowed to lied to you when getting question.
    By lieing to a niggah, that niggah will or might say anything,
    As a result of being mis lead.

    Serves the DA right. I laugh when shet like this happens.

    I would had all my niggah is court laughing & pointing at the DA, doink her with their fingers.

    • Mike9130

      That’s the same thing I was thinking. 6 is better than life, but 2 two sounds a lot better than 6. 

    • mike malarkey

       yea u kno boosie paid that cost…… told young boy to shut up and take this money. boosie would be home now if he wasnt doing dumb shit in the pen… but he will be home soon.

  • sdjnbvpiubv

    Im white, educated and from a normal crime free college town and I hate the govt and court system.  I like Hatch’s music and DVD’s.  They are like cool fiction to me bc I’ve never seen the shit he talks about and I find it fascinating.  I always buy his music and hope he gets out to make more.  I dont care if he was involved in this violence or not.  If he was im sure the people who got killed were pieces of shit any way.  lets just get him back where he belongs, at home with his 900 kids and in the studio to “Set it Off”.  Free the man.

    • “We don’t care what you violent pieces of sh*t do to each other. Just keep us entertained.” The mentality of a simple-minded white male. SMH.

      • sdjnbvpiubv

        In college they taught me:  “Keep It Simple Stupid” or KISS, it is an acronym for conducting my self professionally and in other aspects of life.  So I do, noticing how simple minded I am is a great observation by you!!!  I don’t want to over complicate things and have to start killing people due to the problems stemming from said complications. 

  • immackulate

    just yesterday i thought they was about to HIDE that niggah … but the “killer/cooperative” that turned state’s evidence recanted his story on stand and now it look like BOOSIE bout to walk
    he wasnt lying when he said MINOR SETBACK FOR A MAJOR COMEBACK – this niggah bout to do PAC #’s

  • RichFromBX

    is he guilty, probably…is he going to beat the case, more than likely…it’s not what you know it’s what you can prove…

    as for this cat Louding giving up Boosie because the cops told him that Boosie put a hit on him…maaaaaan, hasn’t this cat ever watched First 48…its a straight up tactic to get people to snitch and this b!tch fell for it…even is Boosie didn’t do it he’s got this cat screaming his name to the police…

    remember kids Wee-Bey was only a character on a TV show…he or anyone like him doesn’t exist in the real world…when it comes down to it people with protect their own asses even if it means lying to the police

    • EL_BARK

      “my niggah wee-bey solid like a rock”
      Its a couple of niggas roaming/ walking these streets that got that wee-bey state of mind.

      But they are far and few in between.
      Thats my favorite show by the way.

      Niggas took 2 more bodies for a grub. Lol

  • jamaicanbornanbreed

    i could care less for boosie and his rap career…quite frankly i think his lyric game is whack unoriginal..and erratic much like his lifestyle….however i’m glad to see the power move in the court…getting his man who originally snitched to go back on the statement….thats a money move…..aint this a bitch though….they go dumb hard to arrest a rapper for any wrong doing…however if you kill a rapper you dnt have to worry because it seems they dont care….if someone killed boosie you think they would go equally hard to find who killed him…..shit we all know who killed pac and biggs and dem niggas still out….FUK THE SYSTEM

  • Shane G

    Good look for Boosie.

  • rep87

    This shows how far the proscution will go to lock you away the star wihness has expose the real rats in this case Free Lil Boosie is the only option throw out the case !

  • mj

    • Apollo Showtime

      Yeah that nigga already lied on the stand before he even opened his mouth with that tape. Boosie is gonna walk and Marlo is gone get ALL that FED time. They gone flight the shit out of his ass, he won’t come home until he got great grand kids.

  • yall crazy this look like they bout 2 pull rabbits out the hat,marlo mike better take that time & end the trial if not he bout 2 get boosie some time,if you say he hired u on tape then go back on ur statement then say u didnt that the mistake now they gone hit u wit some antics 2 confuse urself they already shown that 2800 not worth it when u facing a situation like this

    • X2.. i was saying the same thang . Mike fucked it up on day 1

    • Apollo Showtime

      Right! he paid you $2,800 to knock a nigga off, but the police tellin’ you it’s $25,000 on your head from him if you snitchin’? That would be my BS meter going off right there, because ain’t NO officer gonna tell me dude got 25 racks on my head after I know he just gave me 2,800 racks to knock the next man off. Nigga money got stupid long real quick, and word got to the DEA? Nigga, you might as well let me take my chances in the street or grab a box of doughnuts because we gone have a LONG ass night if you think I’m runnin’ my mouth off that BS you talkin’.

  • So Detectives are allowed to lie as an interrogation technique and that’s all sweet, testify away and we’ll believe you… but if we lie, even under duress, then we’re criminals and never tell the truth? SMH.

  • BAfrica

     Why do they want Bossie so bad? Niggaz are big headed..  But I think the DA doesn’t have much case.. Bossie might be lucky this time.

  • I just don’t like this guy.

  • Apollo Showtime

    They want to make an example out of Boosie, look at my comment from the last post on the first day of trial Everything’s happening just like I said it would. Boosie’s not gonna be found guilty. As bad as it LOOKS for him, the case lacks any hard evidence on him. that’s why I said Max B needs to pay attention to this case, because according to all the evidence in his case, he should NOT be in the bing now and definitely not doing 75 years. He needs that appeal ASAP!

  • Amar Reynolds

    “At that point, Cummings ordered Michael Louding to be released from shackles and for him to reveal a tattoo of an AK-47 on his abdomen that read: “Yo’ Boosie Who’s Next.”                   ………classic

  • TerranceW

    Boosie just better be lucky that he wasn’t tried in ST. TAMMANY B.K.A. “ST. SLAMMANY” PARISH . OR ELSE HE WOULDN’T BE COMING HOME
