Last weekend, manager DJ Frank White said he believed Doe B was likely targeted in the fatal attack.
White is a local radio personality at 97.9 JAMZ and Thomas’ manager. “He was a great guy, a fun guy and a very humble person,” White said. White believes Kimberle Johnson was an innocent bystander who had no connection to Thomas. He said he does feel Thomas, who was at the bar and grill as a patron and not a performer, was targeted in the shooting. “I don’t believe this was random,” White said. “A lot of people don’t want to see others succeed.” (Montgomery Advertiser)
