The question of who shot and killed 28-year-old Stephanie Terlisner on Saturday evening did not go unanswered for long. This morning, Dallas police released an affidavit pinning the murder on 19-year-old Ka'Darius Demond Barrett.

According to the affidavit, it was about 7 p.m. Barrett burst through the front door of what police refer to as a "drug smoke house" at 6674 Cool Morn Drive in Southeast Oak Cliff. He began yelling at several people gathered in the living room, saying he'd been robbed during a visit to the home an hour or so earlier and that one of them had set him up.

The witness who identified Barrett -- this person knew him only as "KD" but recognized a photo -- had started to walk down a hallway to the back of the house when the shot was fired. When the witness returned to the room, Terlisner was sprawled on the floor, bleeding from the chest, and Barrett was gone.

Police say Terlisner was six months pregnant. The unborn child was also killed.

The witness didn't see the gun but said that Barrett always packs heat, which suggests he's armed and probably dangerous now that he's on the run. According to police, he's a black man, about 5'7" and 150 pounds, and lives in a house on Highland Hills Drive, about a mile from the shooting.

"Police say Terlisner was six months pregnant. The unborn child was also killed." - Correction, Terlisner was six months pregnant. The cluster of cells was also terminated" - Wendy Davis

This same guy KD set my cousin Curtron Kenney up to get robbed back in July!! My cousin and the guy that tried to rob him Jamell were both killed!! The police needed one witness to say that he set Curt up but no one would come forward because they were scared!! Now this innocent lady is dead and this innocent lil girl has no mom!! Smh so freakin sad!! I'm glad he's locked up. Crime is crime no matter if it white on white, black on black, white on black or black on white etc.....!!

"Hey boss...we've got a few applications to go through. It's a good entry-level position, so we need to thoroughly review the candidates."

"Who's first?"

"Ka'Darius Barrett."

"Uhhhhhhhh....ummmmm.....who else?"

Pitiful story. I wish we still lived in the old days before Miranda and political correctness. This crack-head would have been lynched from the nearest Live Oak, and left to swing as a warning to others.

Dope heads at a drug house identified the shooter.  DPD going all out.

Yesterday's report said she was expecting the baby "at any moment", but this article says she was 6 months pregnant.  Was one of the articles wrong.  However, I guess that crack babies usually are born premature.

@bubbaco You'd turn away applicants based on their name, without even talking to them over the phone first? Wow, that's pretty sad. Reminds me of those good ole days when, if your name was O'Shaughnessy or Romano, employers would pass you over.

The same reason your mom named u Melinda!! That was a dumb question

@mikeallen1963 Wow, Mike--it's not every day you see someone use his real name to promote lynching.  Way to go out there and demonstrate your racism to any who should care to see it.

@klynn336 But Melinda is a real name, with a real meaning; not a made up bunch of guttural sounds.

@klynn336  No it wasn't a dumb question. Don't doom your kid to a life of being ridiculed for having a stupid name. It's a valid question. Why do people choose names for their kids that are going to be hurdles to overcome? Would you name your child Elmer...Hurbert...Goober...Ka'Baylayn....Dorito...Agnes...Cleta...Bertha....Jer'Magicik...Gertrude..Yubisa..

@James_the_P3 @mikeallen1965 Uh, Mike ... word of advice: if I were you, I'd delete that comment pretty quick, unless you're self-employed. Racist comments like that on the ole Interwebs have a way of coming back to haunt one. Ask yourself if you'd have used the word "lynch" if this had been "white on white" crime. I'm sure you'll say yes, but we all know the truth.

All you have are the most impotent "insults" on Earth when the facts just aren't on your side. When are you moving to that neighborhood? They'd love your white ass down there.

Maybe you should read a little more carefully. I was questioning the consistency between the two articles. Not the plight of crack babies. Take a pill and chill out.

Congratulations!  Admitting you have a problem is the first step toward solving the problem.

About 3,500 lynchings took place during the history of The United States of America. About 2,500 of those lynched were African-Americans.

In the present day USA about 7,000 black people are killed by other black people every single year, for years and years and years.

Evil stupid ignorant uneducated irrational inbred tinfoil-hat-wearing sister-fucking trailer-park-mom's basement-dwelling white racists, like me, have absolutely no need to "oppress" African-Americans or to "keep them down".

They're doing an incredible job of that all by themselves.

Maybe black men shouldn't commit such an astonishingly extremely disproportionate amount of rape, including an overwhelming majority of interracial rape. Just saying n'shit gnome sane?

@poppymann @James_the_P3 @mikeallen1965 In the context of the extrajudicial killing of a black man for the murder of a white woman, especially in the American South, the word "lynch" absolutely has something to do with race.

James_the_P3

@mikeallen1965 Yes, you got me--refusal to countenance extrajudicial summary mob "justice" is the same as condoning the underlying alleged murder.  Your skills of observation and deduction are beyond equal.

So you condone the act then eh' genius? Go vote for Obama again!
