A never ending story

PS. This was my fear why I did not call the police, that they would leave without arresting my fiance, my abuser. As the laws in Sweden are so incredable weak, I couldn’t take the risk! Maybe my fear saved my life at that time! DS

According to court documents, Carlos Evelyn had been arrested twice before for abusing Kadie Ann Chambers in the months before her body was found floating near Idlewood Park Preserve in New York, on Tuesday morning, March 19, 2013. On Sep…tember 3, 2012,  he was yelling, “Get the f—out!” at her while throwing her clothes out, and then choked her.  On September 16, 2012, just 13 days later, he was accused of kicking her and holding her in a headlock, causing serious bruises, the court records state. Carlos was arrested both times, and Kadie was granted an Order of Protection. The judge “decided to dismiss the cases if Carlos Evelyn stayed out of trouble until January, 2014. “ Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown issued a statement saying that on Tuesday morning, Carlos lunged for Kadie’s throat. With one hand he tightened his grip and with the other he hit her in the face 3 times.  After about 10 seconds, she collapsed unconscious, on the floor.  Carlos then put her body in his car and drove her to the Idlewood Park Preserve, where he dumped her body. He then disposed of the clothing he was wearing during the attack.  The medical examiner’s office determined that she died from strangulation and asphyxiation, Brown said. Police arrested Carlos Evelyn Wednesday, charging him with murder and tampering with physical evidence. He faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted. Kadie’s young son, along with her family and friends, are in our thoughts and prayers. Some related articles: -J

Queens, NY – A Queens jury convicted a National Guardsman this morning for the vicious beating death of his girlfriend on a Far Rockaway beach. A stoned-faced David Lynch sat emotionless as the foreman read “guilty” on the top charge of se…cond-degree murder for killing Althea Lewis on Nov. 23, 2010. Prosecutor Denis Tirino proved that Lynch’s videotaped confession to detectives on the night of the crime where he claimed he had “tried to save [Lewis] from drowning” after they took a drunken dip into the frigid waters were one of the “many inconsistencies.” An Iraq war veteran, Lynch brutally beat and drowned the woman he claimed he loved during an argument, said Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown and added, “his convictions warrants a maximum prison sentence to punish him and protect society.” Read the full story:  http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/queens/guardsman_convicted_in_brutal_beating_J2pordDL83KPTGN6uY5xkJ
