Clifton “JR” Barkin, 22, is now dead after the mother of his children, Paige Parkerson, stabbed him in the backyard of his yellow rental house in Houston. Barkin’s mother, Evetta Wright, believes Parkerson was expecting a more expensive Mother’s Day gift than the flowers and card she received this past Sunday. “Paige told me she killed JR, that he was dead,” Wright said through sobs. The Houston Chronicle has the story:
Evetta Wright said she was puzzled when she got a call early Monday from her son.
Not long before, around 11:30 p.m. Sunday, she’d dropped Clifton “JR” Barkin off at his house after taking him to Wal-Mart to buy flowers and a Mother’s Day card for Paige Parkerson, the mother of Barkin’s two small children.
When she answered the phone, she said Parkerson was on the line.
“Paige told me she killed JR, that he was dead,” Wright said through sobs.
