Man Kills Ex Girlfriend And Her Toddler Son After Argument
According to the Kansas City Star, 22-year-old Joseph L. Nelson shot his ex-girlfriend, 17-year-old Bianca R. Fletcher, her boyfriend, 18-year-old Shannon Rollins Jr., and her 1-year-old son, Joseph — all because she tossed an empty diaper box at him during a heated argument.
Nelson was charged with three counts of first-degree murder and four other crimes in connection with the Sept. 8 murders. It is unclear if Nelson was the father of the toddler he killed during the confrontation in her south Kansas City home.
Nelson reportedly says he “lost it” when the diaper box hit him in the head, and instantly shot the high school senior, killing her. Once he realized what he had done, he felt “other things needed to be done.”
Nelson killed the baby for fear that his cries would alert neighbors to the situation, and then Rollins due to the fact that he was a witness to the crime.
After he completed the murders, Nelson allegedly picked up all of the shell casings from his bullets, returned home where he showered several times and washed his hands with bleach, sold the gun, and burned his clothes on an outdoor grill.
He later confided in someone, “I did something bad. I did something I don’t think I can live with.” When the listener-turned-witness asked him to elaborate, Nelson replied, “I killed them. I killed them.”
So sad what happened to this young couple and the girl’s toddler son. Hopefully they put this guy UNDER the jail! How could a diaper box get you angry enough to murder three people? And why did he come to her home with a gun loaded and ready in the first place?!
