The senseless shooting and murder of ex-Saints defensive end Will Smith wasn’t a random killing, and it appears the two men may have crossed paths before.
The man who shot and killed Smith filed a wrongful death suit against the police in 2005 for killing his father. One of the cops named in the suit dined with Smith an hour before the killing.
Now, we find out that Cardell Hayes was also a security officer for the Saints while Smith played there.
Seems to be a lot more things going on than just a random road rage incident.
Will Smith's death may not have been a random act, Cardell Hayes apparently did security for saints. NOPD is holding a presser at 1:15
