15-year-old shoots parents to death, found with violent cartoons, rap lyrics and web searches about killing dad: Cops

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A 15-year-old girl who investigators say searched on her phone for “scary movies where kids kill parents” and had rap lyrics about wanting her father dead is accused of killing her parents.

Daejona M. Holmes faces two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of armed criminal action and tampering with physical evidence. She will be tried as an adult.

Holmes is accused of shooting and killing mom Kinderly Holmes and dad Brian Starr on April 9 at their home in the 5000 block of Belmeade Road.

Court records say that police found Holmes, 37, and Starr, 38, both shot to death inside their home.

Daejona Holmes reportedly called 911 from a different location and said a robbery had occurred and her parents were shot. She later changed her story and said her father shot her mother, and she shot her father.

When investigators got a search warrant and looked at Holmes’ phone, they found the web searches, rap lyrics and a video of Holmes holding a gun and dancing in her bedroom. They also found a hand-drawn stick figure illustration where one labelled “me” was pointing a gun at another labelled “dad.” A third illustration had a stick figure with X’s for eyes and blood around it.

A witness told police that Holmes called him, saying she needed help. He met her at a McDonald’s on Eastwood Trafficway where she told him her parents had been shot. The witness added he had to talk her into calling 911. She also made nine phone calls with her mother’s phone following the shooting and waited an hour to call 9-1-1.

Court documents show investigators spoke with Holmes on April 9 and again May 11 to clarify her story. During the first interview she said her parents were fighting and she heard a gunshot. She said she went upstairs and passed her father, but they didn’t exchange words, and she found her mother dead in her bedroom. She then said she picked up a gun before walking back downstairs, and shot her dad as he approached her. She said she ran in and out of the house and threw the gun in a nearby yard.

During her second interview she said she had actually gone back into the house twice; once to get her cell phone and another time to get her mom’s cell phone. She admitted to changing her clothes prior to leaving the home and moving her dad’s body close to the front door. She couldn’t explain why she didn’t leave the house upon hearing the first gunshot, why she didn’t call 9-1-1 sooner, or why she made nine phone calls from her mom’s cell phone.

Prosecutors have requested a bond of $150,000.

FLORIDA — What started out as a simple Google search together, led to a violent act, according to the New York Post.

58-year-old Tony Brown was found in a pool full of blood after his 57-year-old wife, Lawanda Brown, allegedly shot him in the head.

According to the New York Post, the two were working on a project for their consulting agency, when things suddenly took a turn for the worse.

Lawanda said she didn’t like the tone of voice Tony was using towards her when she asked him to search Google for a project template. She told investigators that the last thing she remembered was her husband walking out of the room.

Shortly after, she said her memory then became “a blur.”

Tony was airlifted to the hospital where he is in critical condition. Lawanda was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder, according to the New York Post.

She is being held on a $500,000 bail.

According to the New York Post, Tony was nominated in 2001 by President George W. Bush for a position in the US Treasury Department.

Pregnant Bride and Dad Shot on Wedding By Ex-Wife!

A father has been seriously injured after jumping in the line of fire trying to protect his pregnant daughter from being shot….

According to NewsWeek:

Police said 74-year-old Frederick Waring “took the brunt of the injuries” attempting to save the life of his 23-year-old daughter, who is five months pregnant with twins, reported KYW-TV. Waring is reported to have been shot at least 10 times and is in the hospital in critical condition.

The shootout on the day of the woman’s wedding occurred around 10:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 20 in southwest Philadelphia. Detectives believe the shooting was the result of a domestic issue after the ex-wife of the groom turned up with two other men.

In a news conference, Philadelphia Police Lieutenant John Walker said there was an altercation which stemmed from “jealousy” after the man’s ex-wife saw a Facebook post saying how he was about to get married again.. Shortly before 10:30 p.m. Sunday, the ex-wife and others went to the 23-year-old woman’s home on the 5800 block of Hadfield Street, police said. After the ex-wife approached the woman, “there was some type of altercation,” Lt. John Walker of Southwest Detectives said at a news conference Monday afternoon.

“As that escalated, some of the males in the crowd, at least two, pulled out handguns,” Walker said. “The father of the 23-year-old woman jumped in front of his daughter. Obviously, he took the brunt of the injuries.” The father was shot as many as 10 times in his upper body, Walker said. His daughter was shot in the left hip and leg.

Police did not release either victim’s name or that of the ex-wife. Neighbors on the block where the father and daughter live confirmed that the father’s name is Fred Waring. He was in critical condition Monday afternoon at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center, while his daughter was in stable condition, Walker said. He said the motive for the shooting was “jealousy.”

Police: Woman jailed after slipper-slapping granddaughter??

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A 95-year-old Florida woman landed in jail after calling police for help during an argument with her defiant granddaughter.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Craig Capri tells the Daytona Beach News-Journal that Hattie Reynolds probably wasn’t a threat, but her admission of slapping her granddaughter in the face with a slipper qualified as domestic violence.

An arrest report says Reynolds told police Saturday that she wanted 46-year-old Janeen Williams out of her house because she was in bed soaking up the air conditioning Reynolds pays for. When Williams began screaming and swearing at her, Reynolds said she slapped her with the slipper.

Police handcuffed Reynolds and took her to jail for the night. Records show a judge released her on her own recognizance.

A lawyer wasn’t listed on records.
