What happened inside the building's first-floor apartment on Sunday remains a mystery. Kendra Harris told FOX6 News she never expected to get this kind of phone call about her uncle.
"It was the worst," said Harris.
Over the years, Harris said Clarence had his struggles but worked hard to improve his life.
"You could say he was a brand-new person," said Harris.
Harris said she missed a call from her uncle on Saturday night.
"It's real tragic right now and unexpected because we would never expect somebody to do something like this to my uncle," said Harris.
Harris said she's holding onto hope the truth will be revealed.
"If somebody knows something, please call the police," said Harris. "I just want justice for my uncle."
The deaths are part of a nearly 100% increase in homicides in Milwaukee from this point in 2021. Milwaukee police said this makes 49 homicides so far in 2022, and of those, 41% have been cleared. It's a trend Acting Mayor Cavalier Johnson says he'd like to stop.
"We can't normalize this," said Johnson. "We can't allow them to go and sit on somebody's couch as if nothing has happened because if it happened to you or it happened to someone that you care about, we'd want you to speak up. We'd want you to say something."
