Takeoff was tragically shot and killed at a private party in Houston just over a month ago. Houston police arrested and charged the alleged gunman, Patrick Xavier Clark, with murder in connection with Takeoff’s untimely death last week.

Clark is now claiming that he cannot afford to hire a private investigator. The accused is asking a judge for the money because he will need it to begin building his defense.

Clark is seeking an initial settlement of $5,000, according to legal documents obtained by TMZ. He claims he requires the funds to hire a private investigator. According to the papers, he is “financially unable to cover the costs.”

The alleged murderer claims to have already found a private investigator who will work on the case for $85 per hour. He simply does not have the funds to pay for it himself.

The documents also claim that Clark’s family is unable to assist financially because they have spent all of their money on his attorney.

The attorney also claims that a private investigator is required in the Takeoff case. He claims he needs to “properly investigate [Clark’s] case and effectively prepare for trial.”

According to DJ Akademiks, the accused 33-year-old is a well-known DJ in the Houston area who goes by the moniker DJ Pat.

According to recent reports, despite his claim of innocence, Clark is “nervous and concerned” about appearing in court. On November 11, Takeoff’s funeral was held at State Farm Arena in his hometown of Atlanta. A star-studded guest list showed up to pay tribute to their late friend.
