This happened 2 days ago and the deputy lives in my county about 10min away from here... some home invader shot and killed his wife while he was away, came back to see her dead body and burglar, shot and killed him.STONE MOUNTAIN, Ga. -- DeKalb Investigators were working into the night Monday night after a shooting inside a deputy's home. Two people are dead, but just what happened is anything but clear.
It all started Monday afternoon, when police got a 911 call about shots fired at a home on Mountain View Pass in Stone Mountain. The home they responded to belongs to a DeKalb County sheriff's deputy.
"When our officers arrived, according to the homeowner, an unknown man had shot and killed his wife, and that he was forced to shoot and kill that intruder," said Mekka Parrish of the DeKalb County Police Department. "
Inside they found the deputy's wife, Linda Yancey, 44, dead, along with the intruder.
Neighbors said the intruder was a day laborer. They said the deputy hired him to do some landscaping. There was no word on why the laborer would have been inside the home.
Investigators towed the deputy's truck for possible evidence. They said that they are looking at a number of things, including prior domestic calls made from the deputy's home.
This is a GOOD reason why women should learn to use the guns kept at home (if they are any) and another reason to be self reliant as it relates to personal protection, which is someone's own responsibility. A lot of these contractors and places that use handy men etc are taking convicted felons and placing them in positions inside people's home and near people's children. One time someone from comcast was fixing a cable problem and the guy actually DEMANDED we leave him in the basement alone, he claimed he needed "privacy" to work better... guess what happened when my dad and I foolishly complied? An expensive drill was missing, till now my poor father does not want to believe it was him but I keep telling him about the shady characters who these companies use. These day's if a stranger who is doing anything around the house or yard, I will be aware of where they are and what they are doing.
Only if the man's wive lived though, sad case, real sad.
These home invaders are pretty cold blooded, some months ago, one in this county shot and killed a 7 year old boy... gutless cowards.
