Man Makes Facebook Live Confession About Killing Ex-Girlfriend Before Murdering Ex-Wife
| Last updated
A man broadcast a chilling Facebook Live in which he confessed to killing his ex girlfriend before going on to murder his ex-wife and shooting himself.
Rajaee Shareef Black, 44, recorded himself admitting to killing his former partner Tara Labang on Saturday afternoon while he was standing outside the Columbia home of his ex-wife Wendy Natalie.
The disturbing footage sees Black revealing that he plans to kill his ex-wife.
He said: “I just did something crazy, man.
“I just shot my ex-girlfriend in the head, yo. Um, felt like a dream. I never thought I would be that guy.”
He went on to say that he was upset over issues relating to child custody with both of the women, before saying that he couldn’t go to prison.
Black said: “The person that really started my depression and all of this is my ex-wife.
“So, she next. And then I’m going to do myself, too. But I just wanted to say this to people: Don’t play with people’s emotions, man. Don’t lie on these men.”
At this point, he calmly adds: “Oh, here’s my ex-wife right now,” before the clip ends.
Police in Colombia say he fatally shot Ms Natalie moments later before turning the gun on himself.
The couple’s two children were found unhurt inside Black’s BMW outside the apartment building.
Howard County police said in a statement: “Howard County police are investigating a suspected domestic murder suicide that occurred inside a residence in the 7300 block of Eden Brook Drive in Columbia just after 2 p.m. Police were called to area for reports of gunshots and found two adults deceased from gunshot wounds.”
An update added: “The children have been placed in a safe environment and did not witness the incident. Police are not releasing the names, genders or ages of the children for their privacy. Investigators believe Rajaee Black came to Columbia after having just committed a domestic homicide a short time earlier in Baltimore.”
Police in Baltimore identified Ms Labang early Monday morning.
Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said: “This is a terrible, terrible tragedy.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of these victims.”
Baltimore, Mayor Brandon Scott said: “We’re talking about a neighbourhood that’s a bustling neighbourhood, a great neighbourhood, but it is shaken now because one of their neighbours has been taken from them, taken from the community, simply because someone doesn’t know how to move on.
“That’s something that we should no longer accept on our streets.”
