Mark Alan Oderbert II
“I got a speech for you”
In the grainy video, his 5-year-old self was dressed in an over-large, pinstriped suit standing in front of a bunk bed overflowing with clothes. He said his name with an innocent boast, and began. “I got a speech for you,” he said. “I have a dream…”
On Dec. 15, 2018, Mark Alan Oderbert II was shot and killed in the Oak Cliff neighborhood of Dallas, Texas, at 5:47 p.m. In the video, Oderbert’s 5-year-old self, in the suit and too-large sleeves, finished the speech and threw his hands up.
