"Evelyn Burgess Killed Danielle Pickens Over Easter Outfit"

So now we’ve got some new details on Evelyn “Shrek” Burgess of Ohio, the 42-year-old-who gunned down her 19-year-old cousin, Danielle Pickens, because she didn’t like the way her husband was looking at the girl (she had the nerve to call her niece) in her Easter Daizey Dukes. Burgess’s weak excuse? “I didn’t mean to do it…. I tried to get my gun to prove a point.” Pop the hood for details.

A woman who called 911 after a fatal shooting at an Easter party told a police dispatcher she shot a relative after she retrieved a gun to prove a point and it went off.
The woman told the dispatcher that she shot her niece, apparently referring to a 19-year-old woman killed during a fight that police say started over a skimpy Easter outfit – jean shorts and a green T-shirt tied up around her midriff.

“I just shot my niece,” the woman says calmly at the beginning of the 33-second call released to The Associated Press on Tuesday.

“I didn’t mean to do it,” the woman said. “We was arguing, I tried to get my gun to prove a point, they got the rifle with me and it went off.”

Asked about the location of her niece, the woman says bluntly, “In the car. I think she’s dead.”
The woman does not give her name but calls herself the victim’s aunt. Family members say Evelyn Burgess, the woman arrested in the shooting, was referred to as the victim’s aunt, though she was her older second cousin.

Police say Burgess got into a fight with Danielle Pickens over her attire, then shot her outside Burgess’ house Sunday night. Pickens died at a hospital early the next day.

Family members of both women said Tuesday that Danielle Pickens’ style of dressing was well-known among relatives.

Danielle Pickens often wore short skirts to the holiday gatherings hosted by Evelyn Burgess, said Pickens’ sister, Ralinda Pickens, and uncle, Tico Pickens.

“The way she was dressed that day is the way she always dressed, and everybody knew that,” said Tico Pickens, 33. “It wasn’t like she meant any harm toward nobody by doing it. It was just comfortable to her.”

Burgess, 42, is charged with one count of murder. Franklin County Municipal Court Judge William Pollitt set Burgess’ bond at $500,000 during a court appearance Tuesday.

Burgess didn’t say anything at the hearing and doesn’t have a lawyer assigned to her yet.
At her house on Tuesday, her husband, Kevin Burgess, said his wife was doing all right, but he declined to comment further.

Danielle, who went by Danny, once dressed like a tomboy, then one day tried on a short skirt she liked and started dressing differently.

“The first time she put on a cute little skirt, I guessed she liked it and she dressed like that ever since,” said Ralinda Pickens, 20.

She says events escalated quickly at the Easter party at Burgess’ house on the north side of Columbus.

Evelyn Burgess was angry at Danielle over her outfit and accused her of flaunting her looks around other men at the party, including Burgess’ husband, Ralinda Pickens said.

A fight broke out with Evelyn Burgess and Danielle struggling with a baseball bat, then ended as Ralinda Pickens broke things up, got her sister outside and prepared to drive her home.

The sisters were in the car when Burgess came running up with a gun, reached inside the car, pulled Danielle by the hair and shot her as she tried to seek shelter under her older sister, Ralinda Pickens said.

Burgess then walked back inside her house, sat down on a couch, told people what had happened and waited for the police, Ralinda Pickens said.

Throw away the key.

    Stupid @ss Skank. It makes me sick to hear about this story. That poor girl probably thought that day this was the perfect outfit to wear today, but not a clue that it would get her killed. I feel really bad for her family.

  • Mrs. Rance

    This sounds like a trifling family fight. This is not the first time something like this has happened. I know people personally that have had these kinds of incidents at family gatherings. Hell, wasn’t Roger Troutmen killed by his brother at a cookout or something like that? Everyone involved is trifiling including the scantily clad victim.

  • BigD

    I hope this woman never has a moments peace after what she did. I hope it rips her apart mentally.

  • chocalatetunda

    wow. speachless….. it didnt have to go that far. weather she’s ugly or not and the young girl looks better it didnt have to go that far. After the fight was over that would have been it. They were leaving everybody could have made it to see another day. That girl wouldnt be dead, the other wouldnt be in jail and families would have never been ripped apart. Everyone lose. smh. People need to stop and think b4 they just react and make the wrong choice that cost everyone their life. That girl would never get the chance to grow old and her life is over cause she would never see the light of day cause she killed her over an outfit and cause her husband looked. smh
