I believe in evil, and there are some people who are evil indeed. Not just bad, not just mean. But the antithesis of wrong and the essence of strife. Such people are like demons on earth who wake up each and every day with the soul purpose of taking or ruining someone's life. Every breathe that they take confirms a chaotic existence, and every move they make represents a quest for selfish, narcissistic fulfillment. This is the story of one such person.
A man murdered his ex-wife in the parking lot of a Fort Washington, Md., apartment complex on her birthday, Prince George's County Police said.
Officers were called to the Westwood Place Apartments on Jaywick Avenue around 1 a.m. last Wednesday and found Lester Lee Fletcher Jr., 32, and Michelle Miranda-Fletcher, 32, dead in the parking lot of apparent gunshot wounds.
Investigators believe Michelle was returning home from celebrating her 32nd birthday and found her ex-husband waiting for her when she arrived. Police say Lester drove up to her car and threatened her before shooting her multiple times. He then turned the gun on himself. The couple had a 13-year-old son.
"My nerves are torn up. I feel like I'm in a safe neighborhood and here somebody was murdered in the parking lot," one resident said.
The couple filed for divorce last September. It was finalized last month.
This narrative is all too familiar. An enraged psycho who cannot seem to let go of the past, brutalizes and kills an innocent woman who tries to move on. Order's of Protection don't work, and restraining order's are a joke, not to mention woefully ineffective.
With that being said, I am a firm believer in a woman's right to protect herself. Especially against men who mercilessly beat and abuse them as if they are less than human. Although there are some women who have been convicted and sent to prison for defending themselves, those women are still alive.
