Video shows arrest of second suspect wanted in Young Dolph murder

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — FOX13 has obtained exclusive video of the moment a suspect in the murder of rapper Young Dolph was captured.

Cornelius Smith, 32, was arrested in Southaven, Miss., on Dec. 9 on an auto theft warrant involving the white Mercedes used in Young Dolph’s killing, according to Shelby County District Attorney Amy Weirich.

FOX13 talked to a Southaven man who saw the traffic stop where Smith was arrested.

Lance Smith told FOX13′s Tom Dees, he was returning from lunch to his business on Airways when he noticed the traffic stop, and he thought it was unusual for that amount of law enforcement to be involved.

Smith shared video of the traffic stop on December 9th. He told FOX13, he immediately knew something was up.

“We just were coming back from lunch and noticed and there was a big police presence out front of the building, and we knew that something big was up,” Smith said. “There were too many cops here. Too many Southaven cops for it not to be.”

Smith said he noticed police officers not just from Southaven, but Memphis too. He thought it was odd that both would be involved in a traffic stop in Southaven.

“The traffic supervisor was here, and then Mark Little was here, and they are big important people,” Smith said. “It was not a normal traffic stop. Something was up. They didn’t send those guys over here for nothing.”

Smith said he thought the stop might be connected to the Young Dolph case from the beginning.

FOX13 also spoke to one woman who saw the traffic stop. She didn’t want to be identified, but she did share with us what she saw on Airways on December 9.

“It was about lunchtime and we came out to smoke a cigarette and there were several police cars blocking the road by Dollar General,” the woman said. “There were unmarked cars, and they were checking everybody,” she said.

Another witness, Marcus Killebrew, didn’t want to be interviewed, but he did share video he shot of the traffic stop where Cornelius Smith was taken into custody.

In it, you can see multiple officers going over the car. The woman we spoke to, who also saw it all, commended all officers involved for the stop.

“They were very clear and decisive in the way they handled things and I feel safe at the end of the day,” the woman said.
