McMillian's body was found late in February near a levee after being dragged, beaten, and burned. The coroner has released an autopsy report that detailing “multiple areas of blunt trauma to the head that are consistent with a beating.”

22-year-old Lawrence Reed has been charged with McMillian's murder. The family believes he did not act alone.
