          ‘They’re Already Deemed Bad Kids,’ Claims Father Of One Teen Accused In Overpass Rock-Throwing Death


          January 31, 2018

          Thirty-two-year-old Kenneth White was fatally injured on October 18, 2017, when the vehicle he was riding in was hit by a six-pound rock dropped from a highway overpass just north of Flint, Michigan. Kyle Anger, 17, Mikaydyn Payne, 16, Mark Sekelsky, 16, Alexander Miller, 15, and Trevor Gray, 15, have all been charged as adults with second-degree murder for their alleged roles in White’s death. All five teens have pleaded not guilty to the charges against them.

          The teenagers, who all live in or around the tiny city of Clio in Michigan’s southeastern region have been referred to as “The Clio Five,” online and in media coverage surrounding the incident.

          In a daytime exclusive Dr. Phil airing Wednesday, Mikaydyn Payne’s father, Michael, says he doesn’t like the label, the comments, or the judgments that are being made about his son and the other teenagers.

          “They’re already deemed bad kids and it’s not true,” he tells Dr. Phil on Wednesday’s episode. “To discredit them out there the way that people are right now; I think is just, it’s just not right.”

          Investigators allege that the incident on October 18 was not the first time this group of boys had dropped or thrown items off the interstate crossing, but Michael Payne claims his son was not involved in any previous incidents. Does he have an explanation for his son’s alleged involvement on the night Kenneth White was killed?
