Josephus Weeks, the nephew of Thomas Eric Duncan who just died of ebola, may have a long criminal record, according to the criminal background check database, Instantcheckmate.com.
Weeks has repeatedly insisted that Duncan didn’t get good medical treatment because he’s African.
Weeks really wanted Duncan to receive blood serum made from other ebola survivors.
“We begged and pleaded several times. They said it’s too late in his treatment. They didn’t try any other options but saline, oxygen and water,” Weeks incorrectly stated. (In fact Duncan had the wrong blood type.)
“We feel he didn’t get the medicine and treatment for the disease because he’s African and they don’t consider him as important as the other three [Ebola patients],” Weeks said at a press conference Tuesday afternoon.
Weeks, photographed above with Jesse Jackson Sr., lives in North Carolina with Duncan’s sister, Mai Wureh.
Here’s Weeks’s alleged criminal record. Weeks’s name, age, and home address all confirm that these records refer to him.
