Keith and Jacquelyn Smith

Baltimore detectives and dozens of police recruits canvassed the Johnston Square neighborhood in east Baltimore where a 54-year-old woman was fatally stabbed as she was giving money to a homeless woman to feed her baby.

Keith Smith, 52, is grieving the loss of his wife, Jacquelyn Smith, an electrical engineer who was fatally stabbed in her vehicle just after midnight Saturday morning near Latrobe homes.

On the last night of her life, Jacquelyn and Keith danced to their wedding song at the American Legion on Madison Street in Baltimore, where they celebrated his daughter Shavon's 28th birthday.

On their way home to Harford County, at about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, Jacquelyn spotted a young homeless woman panhandling in the rain. The woman held up a cardboard sign asking for money to feed her baby.

Police say Jacquelyn rolled down the front passenger window to give money to the woman, when a man approached the car, snatched her necklace and plunged a knife into her chest.

"Snatched her necklace, and before I knew it, the girl snatched the little pocketbook from the seat and they both ran," Keith told WJZ. "I jumped out the car to run, but I heard my wife screaming, so I came back to the car."

As the suspects fled, Keith said the woman paused long enough to tell him something.

"This girl actually said 'God bless you,'" he said.

Keith rushed his wife to a nearby hospital where she was pronounced dead.

"She was just everything to me. My everything. We called each other soulmates," he told a reporter.

Mayor Catherine Pugh met with Keith on Monday. "You've got people who've got warm hearts who want to roll down their windows and give to people. This incident that occurred this past weekend is unconscionable," the mayor said during a working lunch with City Council members at its Monday meeting.

On Monday afternoon, Baltimore detectives gathered with police recruits at the intersection of East Chase Street and Valley Street to canvas the area and hand out fliers, according to WJZ-TV.

"We’re gonna leave no stone unturned when it comes to this case," interim commissioner Gary Tuggle told reporters at the scene.

Tuggle said the man and woman were likely working together and the crime was premeditated.
"They’re using this ruse as panhandlers to get the attention of their would-be victim, and we also want to caution the public about engaging with panhandlers," Tuggle added.

Keith Smith and his daughter arrived at the scene as police canvassed the neighborhood for clues. He had words of caution for Baltimore drivers who might encounter panhandlers this holiday season.

"For anybody that's in Baltimore, be careful when we see these panhandlers out here," Smith said. "Get in close proximity to your car. Because like me, I’m from Baltimore, the last thing I thought that they were gonna take my wife's life. And so now I gotta live with that. I gotta live with that every day."

Police describe the attacker as a Black male in his 30s, about 6 feet tall with a goatee.

The woman is believed to be in her 20s, about 5-foot-4, and wearing a brown coat.

Metro Crime Stoppers is offering $2000 for information leading to the arrest of the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to call Baltimore Police at (410) 396-2221 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7lockup.

  • Harley

    Lots of prayers to her family

  • Yardgirl

    I just did a primal scream in my head!!! The evil out there is real!! I try not to engage panhandlers because of the fear of what happened to this woman. When they say "feed baby" my heartstrings break and I have given money, never at night though and from now on it's going to be never!! RIP sweet lady, you went trying to do a kind deed.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Once again, this is why I do not give to folks on the street. And I did not know that all of this happened at night. Don’t like victim blaming but we gotta be smarter folks. If you want to give find you an organization to give through. If you don’t know of an organization contact your state’s nonprofit association. Ours is the NC Center for Nonprofits. Every state has a counterpart. They will recommend someplace for you or give you a list of reputable ones. RIP to her but this was a bad choice.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I truly hope this man did not arrange his wife's murder. I know I watch too much TV but this just doesn't make sense. Wth was the husband during while all this was happening? Why not pull off and drag his ass for 10 miles? Why not get out the car and beat some ass? chase him down in your car or run his ass over. DO Something!!! Instead he just let them rob and stab his wife to death. This is just so sad and senseless!

  • FukkFolks2018

    He came up in my mind too. Stabbing is hella personal. Its why you hardly hear of a stranger stabbing another stranger. Its just rare.

  • queen of cups

    Dammit I was thinking the same damn thing. I watch ID channel too much as well.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Praying for her family.

    Stabbing is really personal and this story doesn't really make sense to me. The husband was in the car when the incident happened, but nothing happened to him. Instead, his wife managed to get stabbed in the chest, her necklace was stolen and the purse was stolen off the seat. The more I type the more confused I get. Where was he in the car? In the back? Idk maybe the murderer was on drugs...that's the only way him needlessly killing this woman with her husband (a MAN) in the car, makes the slightest bit of sense.

  • Blue

    This is awful.

  • ~~eb

    I see a Fatal Attraction story coming out of this.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    They yanked her necklace and her pocketbook from the SEAT.
    That's interesting. How did they see the pocketbook if it were on the seat and at night no less with her sitting next to it or on it?
    If the pocketbook were to her left how did someone outside see it and know it was a pocketbook?

  • 6ue$$imh8n

    I'm just trying to understand why didn't he drive off it seems like was a lot of time too. There was time for the woman to come up and grab the purse like as soon as he saw the guy reach his hand in the window why didn't he step on the gas ? Howvconvenient at 12:30 a.m. somebody's begging for money on a corner with a baby ?!?! Wow RIP to the lady

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Lord! I really REALLY pray that this was NOT a planned murder?.. the more comments I read,the more suspicious this whole tragedy is... yesterday it pulled at my heartstrings and I was so upset about what happened to this lady..I’m still upset and it saddens me,but what REALLY happened. ??

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    As it its, I'm cautious when giving to the homeless at 12:30 pm. But 12:30 in morning?... No sir. Not happening.

  • Tiff J

    The more details that come out about this story... the stranger it gets. At first I thought the woman got stabbed cause she was struggling with the homeless man, cause she wouldn't give up her wallet/purse. But if the husband saw a struggle happening, why didn't he pull off?

    Now, the story is a snatch 'n stab... and snatch again? Wasn't the daughter in the car too? What's her side of these events? I really hope the husband wasn't involved in this..

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Nah.... I can't let it go. Do you know how hard it is to stab someone through a window? Was she in the passenger seat or driving? Was she driving and roll down the passenger window? Because if she was IN the passenger seat someone else was driving and how the hell was the purse in the seat? And in any case, wouldn't that mean the woman had to reach ACROSS her to steal the purse? What was her husband doing while all of this was happening? She got stabbed, chain stolen and someone reached across her and stole a purse and he just sat there. I mean...nah and the police are really just going to rock with this nonsensical story. Let me go to google and see if some key facts are missing because this doesn't make any sense.

  • XoXo

    Carruther case comes to my mind. ?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    there's been a lot of time there was time for the woman to come up and grab the purse like as soon as he saw the guy reach his hand in the window why didn't he step on the gas
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    Girl, I just legit typed this another comment. It's not making any sense.

  • Tiff J

    LOL I was just watching that show last night. I hope this isn't the case.

  • Sushi

    I hate that this happen. It still does not stop me from giving to the people God put in my spirit to give to, granted I'm always carrying, either on me, or in my car......Play with me.....

  • BeUtFullSoul

    THIS incident Changes my whole view on GIVING to people on the street. I’ll have to find an alternative.

  • Guess Who

    This seems...a bit fishy to me.

    Dark out side snatching necklaces and a pocket book. Was interior light on? How...did they see it? I wonder how big it was and the color?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Something is https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/c1425c997ed3319b16098cad0d4bebaabde80cd22860d557863b4ff2c949aed9.gif definitely not clean ..... smh sadly this sounds exactly like a set up .....

  • Skin Deep Beauty

    Way too much going on in this scenario... SNATCHED the necklace??? It's winter how did they see the necklace? Purse on car seat? How'd he see that if he just ran up out of nowhere and stabbed her...AT NIGHT IN BMORE??? HELL NAW... AND SHE READ THAT sign in the rain in the dark??? I HOPE THEY CATCH THE MURDERERS...

  • Guess Who

    EXACTLY!

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    this is sad .. but something in the milk ain't clean.

  • SpillyNillie

    I give them to them all the time. I'm cautious however, some simply "don't look right" and I scurry right pass them. I'm not giving to ANYONE at nightfall.

  • Guess Who

    THANK YOU...something is very sus about this story. Why am I thinking some insurance money has something to do with this, along with a mistress?

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    I'm not rich and I work in the major city in my state. I will pay a extra 3-500 a month on rent just so I don't have to be bothered with or feel bad about someone else's misfortune. They are at the gas station, restaurant's, corner store etc........That's just me......

  • Tiff J

    Reading other reports.... the couple was only married for 4 years... if that makes a difference.

  • Guess Who

    Or any case of a husband killing his wife due to another woman and insurance money!

  • Guess Who

    Great point!

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I never really felt much of a need to drive around with my weapon, but this story kind of opened my eyes a little bit. I might actually start having Mr. Glock riding with me, sitting on the front seat from now on. Can't be too safe nowadays.

  • SpillyNillie

    This is so sad. But I have questions: Just seems crazy if the guy got the necklace why did he stab her? Secondly, was the pocketbook sitting in her lap or on the console (cuz he said seat)? If it was on the console, oh girl had to really reach in to get it; like, head and all...

  • Renee26

    I got chills! Sounds like they had a great night and the lady was in a heightened state of happiness that made her feel like giving and this is the tragic ending. After reading that I can see why her guard may have been down and she ignored the red flags.

    When you're floating on "cloud 9" you let your inhibitions go.... I know this family is torn up! ?

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yeah, this has really messed me up. I love to give, but will have to stick to safer methods and environments.
    But then I'm not trying to talk to NObody at night. Period.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    @sandrarose, Aun-TEA can we switch gears for a few and talk about the SANDRA BLAND Documentary?...please.

  • BeUtFullSoul

    Exactly!..night time is a NO-NO! Like do NOT even approach me PERIODT!

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    So, are you assuming that since her hubby wasn't injured, she had a good job, he may have been cheating and wanted a way out, the stabber was already in place for when they drove by and maybe the hubby suggested they help that stranger in the dark like that? Yep, I have questions too.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Now see...I can tell U been lookin at too much of that ID channel l0l! I used to watch it, but had to give it up. I was seeing k1llers at every corner.

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    whats up with the new season? has it started yet?

  • Renee26

    I give in other ways... I volunteer with several agencies and the feelingbis very rewarding. There's just something I don't trust about panhandlers... some are con artist and others drug addicts. I feel like if you can stand outside and hold up a sign begging all day then you can get a job and earn your money like the hardworking citizens you're taking money from. IJS there's actually jobs that pay people to stand outside and hold signs.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I agree. There are some people here who suspect the husband might be involved, but I don't want to even allow myself to think that way yet.
    This just seems like a case of people being a little too trusting. Sometimes you let your guard down and people take advantage of you in the worst way.

  • Renee26

    Baby my 25 is in the arm rest... Ion got time

  • ClaireHuxtable

    If somebody is laying in the middle of the road...no worries. I will Drive Around them and then call 911.

    I don't know about this one, I want to believe him, I really do.

    Y'all been watching ID, Oxygen, and TV One dramas

  • Sushi

    I always keep mine on me, always. ....

  • Ms..N

    Lol .I'm a ID channel fanatic and something in the milk is not clean. Why would the wife need to roll the window that far down If it was raining? Secondly did the husband or wife not see a second person approach the vehicle in time to haul as out of there? Usually robbery does not turn to murder unless the person is resisting!

  • Vonn

    RIP Mrs. Smith. This is absolutely disgusting. This woman was murdered by calculated, predatory, thieves. She willingly gave them a donation & that wasn't enough. They attempted to steal her purse & stabbed & killed her for wanting to keep HER own property. They should fry, double deep fry. I don't care if they're some type of addicts or if they lived a hard knock life. This is so sad and disheartening. You can't even be kind anymore without fear of being assaulted or murdered. ??

  • disqus_DxKO3ThTGI

    Yup, and got two degrees in Criminal Justice so my antennas are ALWAYS up and I have always been the one to ask a lot of questions..........MY thing is- I live in a teeny tiny sector of this world. I need to know about the crazies near and far.

  • Renee26

    I swear...you have to be on high alert.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    L0l! Wean yourself...slowly. You can do it!

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    whst about Sandra bland

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    HE stabbed her because that the stuff that thieves do

  • Sushi

    Ok, I'm not the brightest crayon in the Crayola box, but if he was driving, and she was in the passenger seat, would'nt the wife have her purse in her lap...... I could be wrong, and I hope so, but something seems off

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Exactly! everyone including myself who give the homeless money rolls that window down just enough to stick the dollar bill out the window no where near far enough to be able to stab me or snatch anything!! This so reminds me of that lifetime movie (true Story) where the white guy purposely took a detour through the hood and fake broke down and said a black man shot his pregnant wife in the head all the while he was the one who shot her in the head and then shot himself in the leg or arm to make it look like he got hurt too. The police wasn't buying it they took a drive through that hood and said ain't not way that shitt went down like that and they need to do the same thing in this case, I'm sure there are cameras everywhere in bmore pull the tapes cuz this negro got him a young pregnant bish somewhere he trying to be with.

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    If black people had any real gumption we would get together and cleanse our areas of all the scum and thugs and drunkards and whores

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    This story is a warning keep up with that and you might end up in a blog also

  • ClaireHuxtable

    That was in Boston years ago. Heartless.
    I remember the p0p0 were harassing every Black man they could find.

  • SpiceGirl

    Either way...prayers to her family

  • Nik

    Baltimore is a major city so I am sure there are many services for women with children, especially homeless ones. If I see a mother begging after midnight with a baby in her arms my antennas, my eyebrows, and my window would raise aaaaallllll the way up. If the lady didn't care about having her baby out all times of night in the rain, she dayum sure wouldn't care about me or my life.

  • Renee26

    Yeah, I'm not taking my thoughts there either. Crackheads are quick and I can see them catching this couple off guard with the snatch and grab. I don't think the husband realized she was stabbed until after he was about to react then heard her scream out. I can see him being in shock and slow to react...they were partying so maybe he had a few sips. Idk.... I don't want to cause the family more grief by pointing out what he should've done.

  • Renee26

    Right.... I hope they catch them quickly

  • Nik

    Thank you for this mention! I have to look it up. That is one case I will never forget.

  • MzNCBaby

    After reading this yesterday... I got mine out the safe. It's holiday season and I'm seeing beggars every where

  • Nik

    I have always had that philosophy. In order to make sure I could afford to live in a decent neighborhood I drove the same car for 14 years, didn't have cable, had the cheapest plan on my phone, and bargain shopped. Having peace of mind where I live means more than all of the above.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Street hustlers are going to be mad this year because their "take" is really going to be down this year. They can thank their 2 thuggish, no good, low down friends for messing up their holiday season.

  • Jordan’s Memory

    LMAO Well Damn!!!! I have to agree to much ID channel starts messing with your mental! I watched Snapped so much I thought I was gonna snapped! I know that's a different channel but its all the same. I had to stop watching for my man too because it irritated the hell out of me how dumb and gullible woman can be. idc how ur up bringing was if a man tell u too help him kill someone or to kill someone ur ass need to get GHOST!!!!

  • Nik

    Thank you. I currently live in Harlem and I bypass a lot of homeless people. I KNOW NYC has a lot of services to assist the homeless. A lot of these people are on the street because they don't want the responsibility of bills, and some just want to get high and don't care. My mother used to be homeless so I know the drill.

  • Nik

    Correct! We have been warned, now it's time to put that info into action.

    One of my colleagues told me she was on her way to work and saw her husband panhandling by the highway. She thought he was going to work in the morning but noooo. He was begging change. She was like what in the entire hell? You talk about somebody hollering?! I cannot make this up!

  • Ebony Starr

    And where was the husband running to and the man was still there with the wife or had he stabbed her already. Who gets out of their car to chase someone. Yes, I watch I'D Channel and I feel that it has saved my life. I look everywhere when I'm out, before I go out and I look at people when I'm out.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    *smh* Unreal.
    Well, at least he was bringing something home instead of sitting at home watching The View.

  • Nik

    Ha!! When she told that story I was in stitches. She looked so disgusted.

  • Soon2BWife

    So sad and I hope this piece is just leaving out key details. Like did he run to run away or was he running after the suspect then heard his wife. If he ran to get away that means he left his daughter and wife in the car helpless. Rip to this woman who was just being good.

    There is a Documentary out about her Life AND suspicious death.

  • Soon2BWife

    Went over to the NY post and here is a quote from there piece:
    Two friends of Smith, who did not wish to be identified, described her as having a “heart of gold.” They are skeptical about the details surrounding the incident.

    “It just don’t sound right to me. It just don’t sound right, it really doesn’t,” one friend said. “But if it did, I can see her doing that. Going in her purse and giving someone some money. Because she’s the type of person who would do that for anybody.”

  • dru and neil

    There’s a gaggle folks congregating near my neighborhood, asking for money near the shopping area, I used to hand out a few bucks here and there until someone told me I’m just making it worse by giving money, that’s why they won’t leave. And after this story, I’m definitely done.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm with you on that. I'm still driving my 2008 vehicle, being thrifty and stacking my coins, to put myself in the best financial position I can. I'm not going to be one of these nigros out here living flashy and only have $400 in the bank.

  • Guest

    This story is suspect, common, petty street hustlers and thieves don’t randomly stab strangers while reaching into their cars to steal their wallets. Too much going on.

  • Kimocha

    Wow!.. I didn't know it was raining too when this happened... Late at night and raining?... I feel so sorry for this man to have to actually see his wife get stabbed and die right before his very eyes!... And for that B@tch to have the audacity to say "God bless you" is on a whole other level of EVIL!... I pray to GOD that they find them and quick!!!!

  • Dollface

    As I said yesterday, the something smells fishy about this story.

    I have given money to the homeless plenty of times. It was 6 degrees on the day this happen, plus it was night time. If she was going to give the people money - why would her window be rolled down so far? As many time as I've given money hot or cold - I never have my window low enough for someone to reach in there and do all of this.

    So they both allowed to people to be so close into the car that man was able to snatch her necklace and the woman was able to snatch the wallet?

    If he reacted enough to get out of the car and give chase - he couldn't grab the woman and hold onto her - since by now your wife had been stabbed and her necklace snatched. Then comes the girl snatching her purse.

    He claimed she stopped long enough to say "God Bless You." If that was the case you couldn't catch her?

    Why didn't he step on the gas?!?

  • Guess Who

    Right. I am still trying to "unpack" this senario in my mind, according to how the husband has described it and it seems so "Fishy".

    Hell, was there really EVEN A WOMAN AND MAN on scene? Hey, these folks were from Baltimore. I'm sure a 50-something year old black women knew better than to roll down her window ENOUGH for someone to reach in, stab her and grab her wallet, smh! She could have cracked it and slid a dollar or two through it. Why was the widow rolled that far down?

    Why would the husband STOP in the first place, even if his wife asked him to knowing full well how dangerous Bmore can be? Why didn't he drive off the MOMENT a man approached snatching necklaces and whatnot?

    Yeah, "unpacking" this tale is a confusing mess...

  • jwoo250

    Also bare in mind that HIS daughter was also in the car at the time. You guys should go online and see her fake cry on camera with no tears. And those two just happened to be alone with the stepmom. Also, there's so many inconsistency in this whole story.

    They said the woman came up to the car to retrieve the money and out of no where comes a man who reaches in rips off her chain that ain't worth much if it's the one in the picture nor is it even flashy. Successfully gets the merchandise and just stabs this woman.
    So did he shove the other homeless lady out the way if she was standing up at the window first?
    Where was the purse at? He states it was lying on the seat what seat if he was in the car with her? Also, most of us women either put our purses on the floor when were riding shotgun or in our own laps. If the purse was lying on the center console which he confused for the seat. Why didn't he grab the lady as she reached in for the purse?

    I find it very fishy that he claims he didn't know she had been stabbed but saw a man reach in and grab her chain. If he stabbed her several times he would of saw all of that. Lets think logically here. None of this sounds right at all. And again why would some stranger stab her several times. Ain't a damn thief in the world going to stab someone after they got what they needed.

    Wonder if she had a life insurance policy they may have been after? I done turned into CSI now...lol
    One other thing the daughter did nothing either. Fishy as hell.

    This story is bullshit.

  • Guess Who

    Did they find the sign the "homeless" woman was holding? Surely she wasn't still holding it as she ran off with her partner in crime....
    ....or did those two even exist anywhere except in this husband's mind while he counted up the life insurance policy's money. She was an electrical engineer? So is my dad. They make pretty good money and company's that usually hire them have EXCELLENT term life and private retirement/savings plans...
    ...ijs.

  • Dollface

    I just got off the phone with CBS Baltimore Newsdesk - because I wanted to point out the fact that she wasn't wearing the necklace. Here was the she said

    "We have details about this case and we're working very closely with the police department. We know more, but at unfortunately we aren't allowed to say too much without hurting the investigation"

    The energy that I got from speaking to her is. We already know that the husband did it, lol. Bwahhhhhaaaaaaa

  • RealATLPeach36

    And her ashy ass ass lips! Geeze

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    At the 28 second point of the video, she clearly has a necklace on.

  • Dollface

    Oh it was so small I missed it. Sorry!

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    The detectives had the police recruits out there looking for that cardboard sign and the purse. If the woman was carrying a baby, she would've dropped the sign when she ran. Robbers usually empty the purse and toss them away.

    The homeless woman probably doesn't exist because:

    1. Homeless women don't panhandle with their babies in the rain
    2. Homeless women don't hold up cardboard signs in the rain
    3. Homeless women don't panhandle in 6 degree weather after midnight
    4. Homeless women know that people don't roll down their windows in the rain
    5. Homeless women that people don't roll down their windows after midnight

    Yea... I have to agree.. didn't see no tears... just a bunch of fake acting... she was even shivering and shaking like she was so upset!... She should win an Academy Award for her performance!...Smdh

    EVERYTHING u said! I remember that story too....why is it always a black man did this that and the third even in this instance (if hes lying)

  • Dollface

    She can't get an award with no TEARS. My man's 12 year old daughter knows how to turns them on and off like a light switch.

  • Kimocha

    LOL!... You got a point!... I meant to say she should win the award for WORST actress!

  • Guest

    He’s probably covering up for his “daughter”. I pray her family is not responsible for her demise.

  • Elevated Soul

    This story is not making sense...

    So according to the article the wife rolled down the window, a male appeared and he snatched her necklace and plunged a knife deeply in her chest and silmultaneously the woman snatched her pocketbook. The husband got out the car to run. Where was he running to? The crminals were running away from him.

    Why would he leave his "soulmate" side after seeing her stabbed wth a knife?

  • Soon2BWife

    I find ironic that in every picture they shared she has it on and he was sure to take a forward facing pic so we could see the chain the night of the crime. I feel so bad for her. She looked so happy that night and in all her pics seemed to be a genuine and nice lady. If he and that daughter did.....oh my word!

  • Soon2BWife

    When that head came up!! Chile.....

    Did he lose his job and didn't want to tell her?

  • Nik

    She didn't say. I'm thinking he panhandled before work because how could she not notice the income drop?

  • Elevated Soul

    It's all in the details and his details are quite suspect.

  • Mia D. Grant

    Wow! All these detectives in these comments. A bunch of yall I think missed your calling.? When you're a good husband your first reaction is to defend your wife, you wanna hurt who hurts her. His attempt to run after them probably was to try and recover her things as well as hurt them. He just reacted..
    I pray for this man and his daughter. Baltimore Maryland is off the chain with crime and those demons are running rampant. However it does make me think twice about rolling my window down now. I often give to homeless in the street.

  • dru and neil

    Yes that’s how it began and know I can describe everyone (the regulars)perfectly because see them so often.

    That's a big hole to dig. People think their money is right and then find out they're in debt. That's a big no and a huge cause for mistrust in a marriage. Wow. That's no joke.

    I use to live in a city where it was common for men to use women as bait for a robbery Fayetteville, NC dont EVER give them money or a ride if your car if not suicidal cause they will shoot your ass after stealing your stuff too. Most places are not like that but some cities are.

    Are we sure the husband and daughter are not biologically related, were not having an affair and did not set this woman up for insurance money? QTNA

  • Enoughsaid2020

    Never give money to these homeless people, there are too many services that can provide food, and sometimes shelter. May she rest in peace.

  • voyageurs47

    I am watching it tonight on HBO.

  • Erin

    She probably didn't have real baby but a doll, Like the panhandling woman who tried to tell me she was pregnant but actually had a FUPA!

  • Patricia

    i dont mind giving, but, i always pray for discernment b/c it has to be the right timing and right situation for ME as well as the person in need. if i have to stand around for a period of time digging in my purse, no. if i have to shift through a wad of money in front of them, no. if i have too much stuff in my hands, no. and, unlike this couple, if i have to roll down my car window in the middle of the night in the rain, NO.

  • Patricia

    you been watching the crime shows, huh???

  • ClaireHuxtable

    She ended up declaring bankruptcy because those companies were looking at her to pay back those loans.

  • Nik

    Mercy! I feel for her. I hope she is back on track.

  • Allihave2say

    This story is very strange to me. A lot of activity occurred in a car that could have been driven off as the man was seen approaching the vehicle. Was the husband not watching their surroundings? How did the man "pop up" AND have time to stab the wife without the husband reacting? I've been processing this story all day.

    I'm wondering if this wasn't a set up by the husband to kill the wife. He left chasing the woman then heard his wife scream & came back so… he left her there with the man, pursued the woman, the man stabbed his wife, she yelled out, then he returned; or he left chasing the people and left his wife who had just been stabbed in the car to chase the thieves instead of taking her to get immediate help; or what?

    A window is only so big. There was enough space and time for the woman to. reach into the car and snatch the purse, a 2nd person to approach the car, snatch the pearls and stab the woman then run off?

    This story thinks like the one of the home invasion where the only person killed was the wife in a house filled with grown ups. A set up by her husband who moved the family out of poverty and requested that her husband get a legal barber's license to assist in support their family.

    I smell spoiled milk soaked in lies.

  • Roxie Moxie

    Either way, I ain't giving a bum shit. One bad apple done f*cked it up for the rest. I'll give to charity, a foundation (and even those with caution cuz sometimes they be political thieves).

    All I'm saying is these folks better go to the Open Door Mission or the like.

    *make note to self to purchase pepper spray, hunting knife and tazer* Need those for that glove compartment.

  • ClaireHuxtable

    Yes she is now.

  • Gamer?? Chick

    LOL!

  • Reina1718

    So horrible

  • Reina1718

    i dont see that at all. She saw a woman with a baby & decided to give money...while that transaction was happening the dude comes she probably thought they were together & of no harm. Thieves are quick, knife most likely was already on hand & ready to do anything quick & fast. He chased the woman after the stabbing...This is a sad story

  • dontgetblocked

    I have a lot of questions as well. Seems odd that two people could reach into the car and the driver not drive off. Plus the grown daughter was in the backseat. Why would the man stab the victim? They had the purse and the chain.

  • dontgetblocked

    No. It doesn't make sense. Don't forget the woman stole her purse and then the man came over and stole her necklace and stabbed. Two other adults in the car. Why didn't they speed away. The knife was perfectly plunged into her chest. Sounds like a set up,

  • dontgetblocked

    There are two many holes in this story.

  • Oya Shango

    My God. You are right. It did occur to me when I read that he went after the woman, why didn't he go after the man first, since he was the one who stabbed his wife? Also, I am not saying it doesn't happen, but it seems highly suspicious that a male panhandler would stab his wife when he knows there's another man inside the car that could tackle him. That just doesn't happen like that. Something does smell afoul here.

  • CeCe

    Nothing about it seems suspect to me at all. The robbers were working tag team. Some people are so eager to help and think everyone who is begging is nice and really needs help that they forget and roll the window all the way down giving the robber more access to purses etc. They're so focused on giving and helping thatthey forget about themselves. It's totally believable to me.

    The fact that the husband didn't cry is not surprising to me at all considering the conditioning of black men to not cry. My father has never cried as a matter of fact, when his son, my oldest brother died, he told me he wished he could cry. He's been conditioned as a man, a Caribbean man not to cry.

    Regarding the daughter, I don't know about you but I recall a time when I cried so hard the tears wouldn't come. They were choked up inside.

  • CeCe

    Not necessarily. Many times while driving I recall putting my purse in the passenger seat and even as a passenger, I've put it in between both seats on the gear stick.

  • CeCe

    I don't believe for one second that the husband is involved. They were going home from a goodnight and let their guard down in an effort to be kind to someone else.

  • Allihave2say

    The timeline reported in this crime doesn't make sense. The actions of the husband don't make sense. My husband would never leave me, let alone after I had been stabbed to chase after someone. Neither would he leave me with a man and chase after the woman. If he took off running was it before or after she was stabbed? You left her to get stabbed or you left her after she got stabbed? I've been pondering this story. I smell a setup.

  • Sushi

    Ok, may be on the left side of me on the seat or on the floorboard. ...

  • Allihave2say

    Well the Flash was driving and gave chase to the culprits. He just didn't get back in time to flash her to the hospital to save her life.

  • Allihave2say

    Mia his first instinct to protect his wife is to never leave her. He didn't drive off when the man appeared. Did the man pop up from under the car, enter from the rear or sides, where did the man come from? How did he have time to stab the wife and the woman had time to steal the purse off the seat when the wife was in the front seat and rolled down her window, so was the back window down and the purse there? He loves his wife so much, according to you that he left her to bleed to death while he unsuccessfully chased the woman who had her purse?

    You sound materialistic and very naive. These comments are based on common sense. The things were more important to him and you, than saving his wife's life or protecting her? He already knew they were dangerous, as his wife was stabbed.

  • Allihave2say

    I've written this theses 3 times. This was a murder for hire.

  • Allihave2say

    ALLLLL THIS!

  • brillant smith

    LOL now that's too funny

  • Fire & Ice

    That's why this sounds crazy as hell. He left his bleeding wife to go chase after this mystery man ?. I watch I'd and forensic files damn near every night.....I think buddy and his "daughter" finna be in cuffs for xmas ?

  • Mia D. Grant

    You don't know me..Bye!! I'm entitled to my opinion just like you! I'm not so quick to to say he did and thats, that! If you don't like my opinion to bad! Move around!

  • brillant smith

    No the part when the woman paused long enough to say God bless you. This don't sound right. I think he had something to do with his wife murder.

  • Isaidit

    Ok here we go. This guy and his so call daughter killed this woman. They then made up this boogyman story to try and throw everyone off. Case solved. Next!

  • Malcom Flex

    In retrospect they don't act as though they saw a loved one get murked in cold blood.

    This is HORRIBLE. So horrible. They deserve the electric chair for this shyt here

  • Malcom Flex

    I never never give a bum nathan because back in the day got hipped to their scams. People begging on the streets IN GENERAL are scammers. There's family, the gov't, soup kitchens, etc. As a matter of fact trust and believe if they're white and begging on the streets they're DANGEROUS scammers.

  • Malcom Flex

    Right. It's scammers out there begging.

  • Malcom Flex

    If black men don't care nobody cares that's the truth. Being a keyboard warrior as many are isn't doing the dirty work of policing and managing community goons. Back in the day down south goons got handled, with quickness cops didn't care. Neighborhoods stayed safe that's all gone.

  • dontgetblocked

    When I first read the story, it didn't sound right. This was a set up. The husband told her to roll her window down. He sat there while her purse was snatched. He sat there when a man walked up snatched her chain and stabbed his wife in the death spot of her chest. Instead of driving off while all this was happening, he gets out of the car and chases them. The woman stops, turns around and said "God Bless you. Yeah...the husband and his "daughter" were involved. And the suspects disappeared into thin air. Really? There's a life insurance policy involved.

  • Khaliah

    There was no man, woman or baby--this guy did this himself. What got me is the woman with the baby reached in and took the wallet from the seat. What seat!?!?!?! They was sitting in the only two available seats. Did she take it from the back seat? None of this adds up. The husband did it.

    So sad..but I believe this as well. Has set up written all over it and the detectives know it too. Just a matter of time before the truth comes out.

  • MJ

    When I first read this story I didn’t want to believe he had something to do with it but it’s very obvious now. After midnight? in Baltimore? you allow your wife to interact with pan handlers, then after she’s stabbed ..you EXIT the car to run AWAY from your wife and car which is your best mode of escape and best way to get your “soulmate” to the hospital? Beyond suspect. The cops are on this one, best believe.

  • SuperScooper1

    Something stinks. And the daughter (his daughter) was allegedly high on TV the other night, nodding and scratching herself. It was her birthday party they ventured into Baltimore to attend.

    The victim had only been married for 5 years and was an engineer for the Federal government in a high clearance/high paying job...Those Federal life insurance payouts can be quite lucrative. Not accusing anyone of anything, but ain't nobody panhandling at midnight near the Latrobe Homes...

  • SuperScooper1

    I wrote the same thing above without reading down. You're spot on. And the victim had a high paying job and he will now get survivor benefits. They just past the 5 year mark on their marriage which means he's a surviving Federal spouse and gets her pension...

  • SuperScooper1

    hmmmm...interesting...... don't know this area but Philly and Bmore have the same blueprints if you will being drafted by the same architect.. and that's like saying some one was panhandling down Tasker homes which isn't uncommon what is... is someone actually stopping to give them something... interesting indeed
