Ah spring time. That time of year when people fall in love, propose, get married. All that stuff. And with it comes that familiar old story. You know the one. Boy meets girl. Boy and Girl fall in love. Boy’s troubled past makes him more attractive to girl. Boy gets tired of girl and falls in love with his axe. Boy hacks up girl and girl’s friend. Cops find out boy’s troubled, brooding past is full of such romantic tropes as strangulation, robbery, assault. . It’s the stuff that makes middle age women spend millions every year on romance novels and movies. And one lucky gal got to ( maybe)live that tale as old as time.
The prince charming of this love story. Mr. 187 himself.
What a dream boat!
“He calls himself “Grim Creepa.” And before he allegedly hacked her nearly to death with an ax, his girlfriend called him “Mr. 187” — street slang for murderer.”
Nickname checks out.
Law enforcement sources on Saturday night confirmed that they have charged this man in the ax attack on two young moms that left one dead and another fighting for her life.
The suspect, violent ex-convict Jerry Brown, 34, was charged early Sunday with murder, attempted murder, and criminal possession of a weapon, for the ax, police said.
More charges were still pending, law enforcement sources said.
Brown has 13 prior arrests, including for assault, robbery, burglary and strangulation, along with the more minor offenses of turnstile jumping and drinking in public, sources said.
He was being held in a psychiatric lockup, the sources said.
I already can see the angle going to be used by his defense lawyer…
He was arrested in Manhattan at around 3 p.m., the sources said, and has admitted to being at the scene of the murder, the sources added.
The attack left Savannah Rivera, 20, the pregnant mom of a three-year-old son, dead from near-decapitation
The suspect knew both women, police have said.
But social media posts show Brown was dating Valle as recently as last month.
Valle’s Facebook posts from November through March were filled with affection for her beau, who she calls “Grim Creepa.” Isn’t that sweet?
“My heart,” she called him in one post from late December. He must have wanted to take her up on that offer.
Chillingly, just six weeks ago, she posted a photo of him sitting shirtless on a messy bed.
“My f–king man doe!!!” she gushed. “Mr. 187 him self,” she added, a reference to Section 187 of the California penal code, the section that encompasses homicide. It’s a staple reference in gangsta rap.
I think it’s a valid question to ask. If you give your boyfriend the nickname mister murder, can you really be surprised when he hacks you up with an axe? I also have to know if before he started did he kick it off with a horror movie one liner and say ” Can I axe you a question baby?”
The two victims have cosmic levels of bad judgement but a now deep understanding of irony. Cue the Curb your enthusiasm theme song.
