Throughout his early childhood he was a witness to the many lives that were lost and victimized by the streets. Nothing traumatized him more than the domestic violence that occurred between his mother and father within their very own household. The fights between them grew increasingly dangerous and eventually his father stabbed his mother fatally. She was left for dead and David witnessed her suffering as he kneeled at her side sobbing. David’s father was ostracized from his life after he was convicted of the murder of his mother Trenika Duncan.

He had already implicated things that reflected his pain and suffering after losing his mother.
