MEMPHIS, Tenn.– A man identified as the person who dropped his critically wounded ex-girlfriend off at the emergency room and drove away with their young son was indicted in her death Tuesday, Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich announced.
A grand jury indicted Barry Medlock, 27, on counts of second-degree murder and convicted felon in possession of a firearm.
According to the DA’s office, an investigation showed that on June 27, 2021, the driver of a silver car pulled up to the Regional One emergency room before 3 p.m. and dropped off 23-year-old Marika Clark.
Clark had been shot in the neck and legs. She died in the hospital a short time later.
Surveillance footage led investigators to identify Medlock, the victim’s ex-boyfriend and father of their 7-month-old son.
WREG previously reported that their son was dropped off at the Crump Police Precinct after TBI issued a statewide AMBER alert. Memphis Police also issued a warrant for second-degree murder for Medlock at the time.
Medlock was arrested four days later after he turned himself in.
He is currently being held in the Shelby County jail.
