SOME SORT OF JUDAS

HE WAS GUNNING FOR HIP HOP GLORY UNTIL HE WITNESSED A FRIEND COMMIT MURDER.

 

Kevin Williams and Mark Moore grew up in “The Jungle”, the violent neighborhood of Lawrence Heights, sandwiched between a busy urban freeway and a high-end shopping mall. Growing up they knew one truth – talking to the cops can get you killed. In the fall of 2010, Kevin witnessed Mark Moore gun down Courthney Facey and Mike James, two innocent teenagers. The murders were part of a killing spree that would see four men die at the muzzle of Moore’s 9mm. In the following year, Williams, popularly known by his underground hip-hop moniker, Mayhem Morearty, would commit a cardinal sin and breach the code of the streets by becoming a star witness in the crowns case against Moore. While Kevin’s testimony would help put Toronto’s only bonafide serial killer behind bars, the man known as Mayhem, had now turned Judas. For his crimes against the streets that raised him, he became a marked man, forced into protective custody. From exile in an unnamed location, Kevin Williams unspools a complex story of betrayal; betrayal between friends, community, and by the institutions that are supposed to keep the peace.
