On July 27, 2008 at 8:20am Pearl Ms. Police Lt. Brian Ellis issued a murder warrant for Michael Lindsey. This was 6 hours and 20 minutes after David Knapp (a neighbor) came to Michael’s front door, accompanied by his girlfriend Shannon Few and another neighbor’s son Steven Booth, yelling I’m gonna kick the M.F.’s ass. Within seconds of arriving at Michael’s front door David carried out this threat causing multiple life threatening injuries to Michael. When Michael was finally able to escape his attacker he went inside his home looking for his phone (which he was unable to find) to call 911, because he was in desperate need of medical attention. David was 16 years younger, 86 pounds heavier than Michael & had no injuries at this time. Michael looked out his door while searching for his phone and David was still just a few feet from his front door with his arm around Reggie Tisdale (Michael’s roommate/best friend since childhood). It appeared to Michael that David now had Reggie in a headlock attacking him. Michael picked up the only thing visible to protect his roommate and himself from this violent attacker, a kitchen knife laying on the counter. He walked outside and stabbed David one time to disable. Unfortunately David died from internal blood loss due to this single stab wound only meant to disable while he & Michael waited approx. 40 minutes for American Medical Response (AMR) to arrive.
