    "Police: Widow of shooting victim shot intruder"

    Geeez! I hope she wasn't paranoid over her husband's execution and killed an innocent person. Somehow it sounds like she was expecting unwanted company, maybe the same persons that killed her husband;

    By DAVID OVALLE

    The widow of a man fatally shot while playing with his baby son shot and killed an intruder Tuesday afternoon, North Miami police said.

    Janepsy Cindy Mesa was moving furniture in and out of her Spanish-tiled home, 13365 NW 12th Ave., at about 3:30 pm when a man appeared in her bedroom.

    She fatally shot him, then called 911. She was being interviewed by detectives. Details were sketchy surrounding Tuesday's shooting. Police said Noah, the 1-year-old, was not in the house at the time.

    Janepsy Mesa's husband, Orlando Mesa, was shot and killed last month as he played with his 1-year-old son, Noah, outside the house. Noah was shot in the arm and leg but survived.

    Mesa died on the sidewalk. His murder is unsolved.

    Police said that on April 20, just before 8 p.m., two gunmen emerged from a late-model white Toyota Corolla, with black bumpers and tinted windows, and then unleashed a hail of gunfire at Orlando Mesa and his son.

    Hopping back in the car, they drove off but returned, got out and finished off Mesa as he sheilded the infant.

    The methodical manner in which Mesa was killed -- and the sheer number of bullet casings left behind on the street -- suggest he was targeted, police say.

    Three days after Orlando Mesa's death, Janepsy Mesa pleaded for tips in the case at a news conference at North Miami police headquarters.

    ``They had no mercy for my son. They had no mercy for Orlando, `` Janepsy Cindy Mesa said at the time. ``This is a nightmare and I'd like to wake up.''

    Detectives announced a $10,000 reward had been raised for info leading to an arrest in the earlier shooting.


    Here is the link to the story I posted about the shooter's deceased husband;

    Walking into another person's house, uninvited, then going through the house to the bedroom doesn't sound like he was too innocent...sounds like in some parts of Florida, several claymores randomly placed in the yard might make some very nice lawn decorations!
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    Agreed, she is good to go on all counts...no jumpiness here.

    Poor lady though. :(
    And they shot her baby prior, twice (!).

    I agree on the legality of the shoot as posted.

    What went through my mind based on these comment;

    "Janepsy Cindy Mesa was moving furniture in and out of her Spanish-tiled home"

    "a man appeared in her bedroom."

    "Details were sketchy surrounding Tuesday's shooting."


    was that someone might have thought it was a moving/garage sale and walked in to inquire. Most homes in Florida are single level with bedrooms connected to living areas.

    I hope I'm wrong and more details come out to show that she took out a BG and not a bargain hunter.

    I have had a few open houses in the last month while selling our home. Everyone knocked first. I would imagine if the guy was really innocent he would have made his presence known before wandering through a strangers home. It looks like a good shoot to me.

    Looks good to me. Ain't supposed to be walking around like you own the place or it just might cause the owner to become suspicious.

    Sounds like she learned from the first experience and armed herself in case the need ever arose again...apparently it did. Good for her.

    Luck? Yeah right. I bet you she's just another scumbag.

    Her husband was obviously a drug dealer, or involved in something else illegal.

    Her son will probably be in jail or dead by the time he's 18.
    That's right, this sweet baby was made in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Retails for about a hundred and nine, ninety five. It's got a walnut stock, cobalt blue steel, and a hair trigger. That's right. Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. You got that?

    Update!

    Looks like the widow avenged the deceased husband. No doubt there was drug dealing involved;

    Man shot by widow was suspect in husband's death

    Posted on Wed, May. 21, 2008

    BY DAVID OVALLE

    dovalle@MiamiHerald.com

    The man shot and killed in self-defense by Janepsy Mesa was a suspect in her husband's murder, North Miami police said Wednesday.

    Ilan Nissim, 27, was shot and killed after he appeared unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon inside Mesa's hallway, 13365 NW 12th Ave.

    Words were exchanged, and she shot Nissim dead. For now, detectives have ruled the shooting self-defense, said North Miami Lt. Neal Cuevas.

    She told police that Nassim, a ''business associate'' of her husband, attacked her. She retrieved the gun from another room.

    Mesa's husband, Orlando Mesa, was gunned down April 20 by black-clad men in a white sedan just outside their house. His toddler, Noah, 20 months old, was wounded in the arm and leg but survived.

    Three days later, Janepsy Mesa made an dramatic plea for help at a press conference at the North Miami police station.

    Nissim knew her husband, who had been arrested one month earlier on a charge of marijuana possession with intent to sell. ''She was terrified of him from day one,'' Lt. Cuevas said of Nissim.

    Asked about his death, Nissim's sister, Yaffit Nissim, said: ``I would call it murder, but I can't comment any more.''

    She described her brother as a father of one who helped care for his ailing, elderly father. Yaffit Nissim said he knew the entire Mesa family.





    For now, police have ruled the shooting death of Ilan Nissim self-defense.

    I have to agree. This whole thing stinks of drugs or some form of illegal activity. Sounds like a real life episode of CSI Miami.

    real stories

    In our local paper about 6 months ago there was a story about a home invasion where a woman was tied up and tortured with a heated knife to tell the intruders where she kept her money. Lots of sympathy and outrage. A few days later it was reported that she was a major cocaine distributor. Everybody went to jail.

    I have yet to understand why newspapers (most) across the country insist on publishing the victim's address. I see no mention of the dead guy's address. Wonder why?

    The dead guys address is now 6 feet down

    I remember the original story about 2 months ago, but didnt know about this new shooting! DAMN!

    The husband that got killed was said to be in a "drug court case" when he was killed. Probably snitched on this (now dead) douchebag...

    All this crap not 4 minutes from my apartment and with the same LEO's and detectives that ran my incident... CRAZY!
