The Post also reported that Dep’s mother and girlfriend tried to convince him not to turn himself in, did you know he was going to do that?
He never reached out to you before heading to the police?
He called me at 2 o’clock in the morning, I can’t remember exactly what day, but it was that week. And I’ve had the 2 o’clock in the morning phone call before. So he was like ‘Hey what’s up?' And I was like ‘I’m sleeping right now I gotta wake up in the morning' and I hung up. Then a day or whenever later I’m in Costco and someone calls me asking do you know G Dep? We just wanted to verify some information.’ I said I’m not verifying any information and hung up.
After that my brother texted me and said Trevell got locked up. I wasn’t even thinking about the last phone call, I just said ‘No, no, no, Trevell just got out a little after Thanksgiving.’ Then my brother was like ‘No Crystal, he’s locked up.’ Then I called Trevell directly and got no answer. Called his mom and she says he is in jail. I said my brother says he’s in jail for murder, she said that’s what he’s been charged with.
Then the whole Costco started spinning. All I could do was stare at my boys. So many thoughts went through my mind. All of these emotions are going through me and I’m just trying to stay calm and register all of this. I was smoking a thousand cigarettes. I was on the floor of my room crying and praying. I couldn’t eat or do anything.
Reflecting back on it do you think he was calling to consult with you?
Only Trevell knows. And I haven’t asked him.
Why haven’t you?
[Long pause] My focus on Trevell is to get him the best defense, not to focus on the past. So we just speak on what’s next, not what happened.
You’d rather not know?
It doesn’t matter. I’m the type of person who just likes to move on.
Understandable. But theoretically if you hadn’t had hung up and he was calling for consultance, what do you think you would’ve told him?
