The Birmingham Police Department’s ongoing search for Julian Morris, a person of interest in the death of Deundray Cottrell, has prompted attorney Victor Revill, Esq., to issue the following press release on his client’s behalf.

“Mr. Morris is a college-educated veteran who has served his country faithfully as a Marine. He has no prior misdemeanor or felony convictions. Despite the false narratives that are being promulgated about him in this situation, he loved Deundray Cottrell and is currently grieving the death of his beloved one. Mr. Morris wants answers as well and is awaiting those answers after a thorough investigation has been completed. Under the advice of counsel, he will not be giving any further statements at this time.”

Officer Truman Fitzgerald with the Birmingham Police Department released a statement to the media at 5:00 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, and it reads:

“Good evening, Media Partners, Julian Morris was the last person to see and/or hear from Deundray Cottrell before his disappearance. He is currently a “person of interest” in this investigation which means we believe he holds crucial information in this case. Julian Morris was seen by and spoke with BPD officers BEFORE Deundray’s body was discovered. Since Deundray Cottrell’s body was discovered, Julian Morris, his family, and his legal counsel have NOT spoken with BPD detectives. BPD respects Julian Morris’ wish to not provide a statement. We appreciate the community’s support for Deundray and his family as BPD Homicide detectives continue to pursue justice in the Deundray Cottrell Homicide Investigation.”

More information will come as soon as it is made available.
