Burley dropped out of Southern High School several years prior to his disappearance. He is a former member of the Lexington Terrace Boys and he has an arrest record that began when he was sixteen, but his mother stated he was trying to straighten out his life and had a job interview scheduled. He told her he feared for his safety and planned to buy a gun to protect himself, and that if anything happened to him one of his friends was probably responsible.
Burley was accompanied by a distant cousin, Michael Lafayette Taylor, at the time of his disappearance; Taylor was also a member of the Lexington Terrace Boys. The men had allegedly had a falling out because Burley refused to get rid of a .44 caliber revolver which Taylor had supposedly used in at least two homicides. Along with another defendant, Keon D. Moses, Taylor was charged in connection with six gang- and drug-related murders, including Burley's, in 2002. A third defendant, Aaron Demarco Foster, reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and testified against his partners in crime in exchange for a life sentence.
