Deputy Clyde Kerr lll, took his own life outside the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office after leaving multiple social media videos online. His videos talked about police brutality and mental health within the police field.

He also talked a lot about the difficulty of being a black man in law enforcement. He lived by the statement "Only Life Matters".

The candlelight vigil was hosted by La Veranda Apartments property manager.

The family has set up a GoFundMe account which can be found here https://uk.gofundme.com/f/clyde-kerr-iii-only-life-matters
