Takeoff's Alleged Murderer Requests Funds to Hire Private Investigator

Takeoff

Takeoff‘s alleged murderer, Patrick Xavier Clark, is asking a judge for money … because he says he can’t afford a private investigator, but needs one to build his defense.

According to legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Clark’s asking for an initial sum of $5,000 to hire a P.I. … adding he’s financially unable to cover the costs on his own.

The docs say Clark’s family has already spent all its money on his attorney who agreed to work at a reduced rate for him. He says it’s necessary to add a private investigator to his defense in order to “properly investigate [Clark’s] case and to prepare effectively for trial.”

Clark says he’s already identified a P.I. who will work on the case for the reduced rate of $85/hour.

As we reported, Houston PD announced last week Clark had been arrested and charged with the murder of the rapper. He’s currently being held on a $2 million bond.

The docs say Clark will be put under house arrest if released … and he’ll be prohibited from possessing firearms or any deadly weapons, and must refrain from using marijuana or any controlled substance without a prescription.

He’d also be barred from speaking with specific people like Takeoff’s family, J. Prince Jr. and boxing star Shakur Stevenson … who was standing inches away from Takeoff moments before the fatal shooting.
