Why would anybody be fishing at Lake Maggorie at 5:00am in the morning, and doesn't that lake have gators in it? That doesn't make any sense.

A car pulls up and she asked him if he could give her a ride? A Car pulls up? I don't get it.

Pardon the bad pun, but this story sounds extremely fishy to me. She arrives in a car and asks the man to take her home? And a man "just happens" to come from the neighborhood and opens fire? Nope, sorry, I don't believe it went down that way.

I agree with most of you, it doesnt take CSI to figure out "A CAR PULLS UP AND SHE ASK FOR A RIDE"
Ummmm hello Tampa Police that would have been a big bell going off.
Yes he probably was fishing and she was cheating, either with him or with the guy that happen to come "from the neighborhood"

I can imagine a situation easily - woman's boyfriend picks her up, takes her to his house, then gets violent/abusive. In the morning she tries to leave without making a scene - asks someone for a ride. Boyfriend wakes up angry, goes out and shoots her.

I hope that's not how it went down, but I don't the story sounds that implausible.

I agree this story makes absolutly no sense at all. There has to be more to it. I know of the young lady that was killed and I know she was no angel, yet in still my thoughts and prayers go out to the family. But lets be for real here, that lake is filled with gators!! And I've lived in St. Petersburg all my life and know that nobody fishes there at 5am, just doesn't happen. There are too many cases that have gone cold involving african americans it just seems like there is a small story about it and then you hear nothing else about it. How do they know who the target was?? I mean be for real this makes no sense. And I hope for her kids sake that something is done to find the killer and it doesn't end up like all the other cases!!!

What exactly does this mean!! It's this sort of ignorance that is corrupting the world 2day. I mean I thought these days were long gone!! And "Black People" are not the only ones making stupid mistakes these days. ALL races are included in the ignorance. But people like you are what makes this sort of thing keep going on and on!

I tried to find this story on tbo.com to see if it clarified the 'pulled up and asked for a ride' story,...but I can't even find a mention of this on the site under news. I am not sure what that implies.

I live in South St Pete and drive by this spot on the way to work every morning at 4:30am. There are plenty of people out at this time of the morning. Corner of MLK and 22nd has an open gas station with teenagers(I imagine pushing dope)and quite afew cars pulling in. This is 4:30 AM. I like Kenneths explanation. It makes sense to me.
Its scarey driving along 9th and 22nd this early. I certainly would not stop and avoid even stopping for lights.

It is a comment like this one (above) that encourages Jim's stupid "Monkey" comment. Perharps Jim and this other uneducated poster should get together!

Blacks are 95% of the time the culprits in these cases. Sorry that the facts bother you. If you don't want blacks profiled, tell them to quit committing crimes!!

By the way, I am a succesful business owner, home-owning tax payer. Far from a trailer park. LOL!!
