In 2006, Rainey’s mother (Detra, 39), three brothers (William, 16, Hakiem, 13, Malachi, 6) and sister (Samenia, 6) were murdered by his stepfather in North Charleston, while Rainey was away at college. Today, Rainey is a captain with the North Charleston Fire Department, a husband, father, and volunteer.
