End Of Days: Woman Guns Down Cousin Over Easter Outfit

Nothing shows the Baby Jesus love like a fatal Easter shooting. Evelyn Burgess, 42, shot and killed her 19-year-old cousin, Danielle Pickens, because she did not like the Daizey Dukes the young woman was sporting. Pop the hood for the family drama.

When a teenage cousin showed up at Evelyn Burgess’ house for Easter dinner wearing what Burgess considered a revealing outfit, the hostess was not going to let the issue go.

According to family members who were present, Burgess got mad when her husband took notice of the T-shirt and jean shorts that Danielle Pickens was wearing.

Burgess and Danielle Pickens fought before Pickens walked outside and got into a car in front of the Linden-area house.

Burgess followed, pointed a handgun at her 19-year-old second cousin and shot her in the head, according to police.

Burgess, 42, told police that Pickens showed up at her house in an outfit that “was inappropriate and disrespectful to wear at Easter dinner,” said Columbus homicide detective Steven Eppert.

He said Burgess told investigators “she didn’t mean to shoot” Pickens, who was wounded at 8:43 p.m. in front of 1666 Manchester Ave.

Pickens, who lived nearby on Pontiac Street, died at Riverside Methodist Hospital at 2 a.m. yesterday of a gunshot wound in the head, said Franklin County Coroner Jan Gorniak.

Burgess is charged with one count of murder. During her initial court appearance today, Franklin County Municipal Court Judge William Pollitt set bond at $500,000.

Eppert said a large number of family members and friends were at Burgess’ house during the confrontation and “quite a few were witnesses” to the shooting.

Yesterday, several family members gathered at Pickens’ house. Her cousin, Tico Pickens, 33, described Danielle as a “sweet, young, caring person.”

“And what happened to her should have never happened,” he said.

This is so sad and senseless. R.I.P.
