Another Jehovah’s Witness murder, this time from the Bronx. A man shot his estranged Avon-lady wife to death and then killed himself. They were found by the mother’s 21-year-old daughter.
He would show up unannounced and sleep outside the apartment in his truck when she wouldn’t let him in. He had been angry that she was out of his control, had “strayed” from the JWs and was dating someone else after their separation 18 months ago. Basic stalking, lack of respect for someone else’s free will and being, probably mixed up with several JW issues on headship, domination of women, approaching apocalypse, and so on.
Sharoll Medina, 39, another victim.
Julio Lopez, 45, murderer – and also victim.
