Brandon Bowling was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder in the death of 22-year-old Heather Maples.
The woman was found dead Aug. 7 in her Murfreesboro, Tenn. apartment.
We are told that black crime is due, in part, to lack of opportunities such as education.
The arrest was reported Aug. 15, 2015.
The life of a 22-year-old woman is a terrible thing to waste.
If readers are aware of a 22-year-old black woman killed by a white university student in her apartment anytime in the past 200 years, please post a link in the comment section before.
We are careful to be fair in balanced in our reporting; we are often reminded that violent crimes are committed by members of all races. However, we seem to have difficulty finding reports of white-on-black violent crime other than those sensationalized by the national media, such as the murder of nine blacks in Charleston, South Carolina.
Black-on-white murders are seldom sensationalized.
Please report typos...
A senior at Middle Tennessee State University has been charged in the murder of a 22-year-old woman found dead inside her apartment on Aug. 7.
Murfreesboro police reported Saturday that Brandon Bowling was taken into custody and charged with first-degree murder.
Bowling, a senior business major in information systems, is accused of killing Heather Maples, who was found dead by a friend around 9 a.m. on Aug. 7 at the Cove of Center Point apartments on Brown Drive, just blocks from MTSU.
At the time of her death, police said they believe she knew her attacker and her death was not a random act. However, the connection, if any, between Bowling and Maples has yet to be released.
Police reported Maples had been at Gentleman Jim’s Bar and Grill the night before her death until midnight. She then went to the Handlebar until 12:45 a.m. before returning to Gentleman Jim’s where she stayed until 2 a.m.
After leaving the bar, it’s believed Maples returned to her apartment. She was then found dead hours later by her friend.
The cause of her death has yet to be released.
