“Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I present to you the murder weapon – and no, you can’t have it after the trial.”
- Arleen Mathers, 23, was arrested Thursday morning after she called Memphis Police and said she had killed her boyfriend, according to a Sheriff’s Department report.
When deputies arrived at Mathers’ apartment at 528 Poplar Avenue, Mathers led them to the body of her boyfriend, Brad Pulaski, 27.
Brad Pulaski had died of blunt trauma to the head after being repeatedly bludgeoned with an iPod, a popular MP3 player produced by Apple.
Police said no motive has been confirmed, although evidence suggested the murder was the result of a domestic dispute after Pulaski erased the contents of Mathers’ iPod.
According to law officers, Mathers was hysterical when police arrived and told them that she killed her boyfriend only after he accused her of illegally downloading music and erased about 2,000 of her MP3s. Mathers complained that it took 3 months to build her music collection. [Headlinednews.com]
Three months? Well then death was too good for the bastard.
The coroner said she must have hit him 40-80 times with the iPod, which, fortunately for her, is “partially made of a hard metal plate that’s been praised for its resistance to regular wear and tear, like drops and coffee spills.” Or use as a bludgeon.
A question: was the guy asleep or something? How could a grown man allow himself to be beaten 40-80 times by a woman with an iPod? If my life is at stake, I’m kicking the bitch down the street regardless of what damage it does to the iPod.
