Juanita Walker, Mill’s aunt who also lives in the house, told 6ABC that she doubted that her family was singled out by the perpetrator.

“I didn’t know why somebody did that,” she said. “I went down to talk to somebody else and the same thing was on their wall. So it’s all the way down to Washington Avenue, every corner house.”
