A 25-year-old Missouri woman, one Sha-Rae Bradford, has been reported killed after a friend she met on Facebook, allegedly visited her for the first time at her apartment in Versailles, Ferguson.
According to family sources, she was found lying on her bed in the pool of her blood and the cause of her death is unknown.
FOX News 2 reports that the family members also disclosed that Bradford was an aspiring nurse and mother of a 6-year-old girl. They say they’re glad her daughter wasn’t home when she was killed.
Reports say the accused, Stassie Greer of Jennings, has been charged with 1st degree murder, 1st degree robbery, and two counts of armed criminal action.
In accordance with the alleged probable cause statement from St. Louis County Police, Greer had arranged to meet the victim for sex in exchange for money at her apartment. The police alleged there was evidence of a sexual encounter found near the victim’s body and that the victim was killed by a single gunshot wound to the back of the head.
An unidentified witness, however, reportedly identified 20-year-old Greer as a man entering the victim’s apartment in a photo lineup.
Surveillance video also revealed how Greer entered Bradford’s apartment complex, attempting to conceal his appearance and leaving her apartment complex.
The medical examiner was also said to have found seminal fluid on swabs applied to many parts of the victim’s body.
Reports further revealed the victim’s phone and rent money was missing from her apartment. A search warrant was conducted at the Greer’s house and Bradford’s phone was found.
Meanwhile, investigators from the Major Case Squad are reportedly working on the case.
