Prosecutors argued that Adam Braseel’s motive for murder was the theft of Malcolm Burrows’s wallet which allegedly contained eight hundred dollars. The prosecution claimed that Burrows’s wallet was not on him when his body was collected. That information is disputed by statements made by former Grundy County Deputy Mike Brown in an interview with DK Sale. Brown was the first person to discover the body pf Malcolm Burrows. According to Brown, he saw a “big fat wallet” in the pocket of Burrows’s back jeans pocket. If that wallet was in Burrows’s pocket, then whoever murdered Burrows certainly did not take it when he or she fled the scene.
