A man who killed his 15-year-old son and also shot his ex wife posted a live video on Facebook admitting to the crime.
On Tuesday, Earl Valentine broke into the house of his ex wife Keisha and shot her first, then shot his son who tried to protect her according to the police. Soon after that he went live on Facebook under the impression that he killed his ex-wife.
“What’s up everybody? I just killed my f***ing wife,’ Valentine said. ‘I loved my wife, but she deserved what she had coming” he said in the Facebook video.
”I’ve been very sick for months and this is something that I could not help”.
”She lied on me, had warrants taken out on me. She drug me all the way down to nothing. I know a lot of y’all are going to be disappointed in me, but it was something that had to be done.” Earl said unapologetically.
According to the police Chief Taylor Bartholomew, his son called the police station after he and his mother were already shot.
”We actually got a call from the young victim with a dying declaration that his father had shot him and his father also shot his mother,” Chief Bartholomew told WTVR.com.
In order to escape from the abusive Earl, Keisha Valentine moved to Norlina, North Carolina 9 months ago with her son. According to reports, she had a year long restraining order against Earl that was recently lifted last month.
His activities were traced in Richmond, Virginia where he was visiting his father’s grave. The police got in contact with him over the phone and he told them that he wanted to kill other family members. As a precautionary measure, those members were placed under police protection.
Later on – the authorities found Earl dead in a motel in Columbia, South Carolina. He committed suicide via gunshot wound. His ex-wife remains in critical condition.
The investigation is still on-going.
