Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph wanted for questioning about Dallas murder, according to report

3 min read

After a man involved in a fight outside a Dallas bar last month was identified as Cowboys cornerback Kelvin Joseph, police want to interview the 21-year-old about a murder that occurred later that night, according to The Dallas Morning News.

Surveillance video obtained by Dallas-Fort Worth’s KDFW-TV shows a man in a hoodie and a YKDV medallion hanging out with a group inside the bar on March 18. That same group was spotted getting into a fight with 20-year-old Cameron Ray and other men in the Lower Greenville area of Dallas at about 1:45 a.m. Ray was shot and killed in a drive-by as he was walking to his car about 15 minutes later.

Joseph also goes by YKDV Bossman Fat, which is the name he uses as a rapper.

Barry Sorrels, Joseph’s attorney, told the Dallas Morning News on Friday that his client was in the vehicle from which the gunshots were fired but that Joseph was unarmed.

“Kelvin Joseph did not shoot Cameron Ray,” Sorrels told the Dallas Morning News. “Mr. Ray’s death is a tragedy, and Kelvin extends his deepest condolences for the family’s loss. On the night of March 17, Kelvin was unarmed and was not looking for violence. He found himself in a situation that escalated without his knowledge or consent.

“Along with condolences to the Ray family, Kelvin apologizes to the Dallas community for being anywhere near this type of incident. The investigation is ongoing, and we intend to respect the process.”

The Cowboys released a statement to the media Friday saying they’re aware of the incident.

“First and foremost, our hearts to out to Mr. Ray’s family and loved ones”,” the statement reads. “The organization is aware of Kelvin Joseph’s possible connection to this incident. We are in contact with Dallas law enforcement and have alerted the NFL office. We have no further comment at this time.

The Cowboys took Jones in the second round of last year’s draft, but he played mostly on special teams as a rookie. He didn’t play at all in the first six games of the season, but started two of the Cowboys’ final three regular season games. In the playoff loss to the 49ers, Joseph didn’t play a snap on defense, but did play on special teams. 

Joseph, who grew up in Baton Rouge, played his freshman season at LSU, but transferred to Kentucky after he was suspended from playing in the Fiesta Bowl for violating team rules. Joseph played well enough in his one season at Kentucky for the Cowboys to draft him with the 44th overall pick in the 2021 draft.

The Cowboys have had a tumultuous offseason. An embarrassing situation came to light that involved a team executive allegedly secretly recording Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders getting undressed in a locker room. The Cowboys settled a lawsuit with those cheerleaders for $2.4 million. A woman also is suing Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, claiming she is his biological daughter.
