So thats all fine and dandy. I noticed some strange
stuff in this story though.
This is how it supposedly played out when the intruder arrived.
Herman was working from home Friday when she saw a man walk up to the front door. She told police he rang the doorbell twice and then over and
over again. He went back to his SUV, got something out and walked back toward the house, a police report said.
oooookk? Riiight.. those don't sound like the actions of a burglar to me? Well thats only what the yahoo article says, lets see what fox news
says happened next.
The mom heard knocks on her front door Friday and assumed it was just a solicitor, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.
She told her 9-year-old twins not to answer the door and, when the visitor began repeatedly ringing the doorbell, she called her husband at his job
and he told her to gather the children and hide.
Side note: Look at this house!!!
You mean to tell me the guy just walked up and broke into that
house in broad daylight?
Pay close attention, going to go back and forth with how it played out after that between yahoo and fox and Atlanta journal Consitution reports.
Herman took her 9-year-old son and daughter into an upstairs bedroom and locked the door. They went into bathroom and she locked that door,
too. She got her handgun from a safe, the report said, and hid with her children.
^yahoo They hid in the bathroom..
As he dialed 911, his 37-year-old spouse, who works from home, collected the children and hid with them in a crawlspace adjoining her office. By that
time, the intruder had forced his way into the three-story residence on Henderson Ridge Drive with a crowbar, authorities said. He allegedly rummaged
through the home, eventually working his way up to the attic office.
“He opens the closet door and finds himself staring down the barrel of a .38 revolver,”
^ Fox/Atlanta journal constitution. Office closet according to AJC, crawlspace according to Fox.
Ok, now this is crazy to me:
After Donnie Herman told his wife police were on the way, he started shouting: "She shot him. She's shootin' him. She's shootin' him.
She's shootin' him. She's shootin' him."
"OK," the dispatcher responded.
"Shoot him again! Shoot him!" Donnie Herman yelled.
It just doesn't sound like the normal actions of a home invader to me, the husband talking like that though.. Maybe they knew the guy?
Lets wrap it up:
The woman fired six bullets, five of which hit Paul Ali Slater in the face and neck area, Chapman said.
While down, the woman and her children ran to a neighbor’s house, and the injured intruder made it out of the home and into his car, the paper
Authorities found Slater a short time later bleeding profusely in a neighbor’s driveway.
^fox - Found in neighbors driveway.
The man drove away in his SUV. Police found the SUV on another subdivision street and discovered a man bleeding from his face and body in a
nearby wooded area.
^yahoo - Found in woods.
How did this guy run anywhere with 5 gunshot wounds?
It doesn't make sense to me from any of the sources, the fact that they are so conflicting... just bad reporting i guess.
I think there is something else to this.
