Fayetteville mother says four charged in son’s Southern Pines killing were his friends | #schoolshooting


When Latonya Whitener dropped her only son off at his friend’s house in Cameron on the morning of Oct. 8, it was a normal Saturday for her. Her daughter was home from college for the weekend, and she planned to spend the evening at home with her, staying up to make sure her son made his 11 p.m. curfew. Like any other Saturday, Whitener returned from work to her Fayetteville home about 5 p.m. — and like many other Saturdays, 17-year-old DeMarcus Chambliss, a senior at Seventy-First High School, missed his curfew.

Whitener was irritated, but not concerned. “Your brother never makes it home on time,” she said she told her 19-year-old daughter Destini Chambliss as they watched television and awaited DeMarcus’ return. “He’s going to be on punishment. He’s not going to go anywhere next week.”
