AN TEXAS man told police he killed a woman Thursday because she failed to tell him she had the AIDS virus before they had sex.
“She killed me, so I killed her,” Larry Dunn told police, according to case records.
Dunn, 36, is being held in the Dallas County Jail on a murder charge. His bail is set at $500,000.
The body of 28-year-old Cicely Lee Bolden was discovered about 3:40 p.m. Thursday in the 5900 block of Highland Village Drive in Dallas.
Her 7-year-old son and 8-year-old daughter found her when they returned from school.
“They walked inside the house [and] came out crying,” said Latoya Arnett, Bolden’s neighbor. “I ran outside to see what was wrong with them.”
She said they kept saying, “Something is wrong with mama.”
Arnett said she entered the apartment, found Bolden in a pool of blood and called 911.
“She didn’t deserve it, and her kids didn’t deserve to see her like that,” Arnett said.
According to police records, the investigation quickly focused on Dunn.
Relatives and friends reported that Bolden had started dating a man named Larry, and they thought there had been a heated discussion about her having been infected with HIV, which causes AIDS.
Police said that they found Dunn and that he agreed to be interviewed at Jack Evans Police Headquarters about his relationship with Bolden.
When questioned by detectives, Dunn said he had gone to her apartment to have sex. He said that afterward she “started talking to him about her having HIV and telling him that it is not that bad.”
That upset him, he told detectives, because he had a right to know before they had sex.
“Dunn said that he got out of the bed and walked to the kitchen and got a knife,” according to police documents. “Suspect Dunn walked back into the bedroom where … Bolden was laying on the bed and he started stabbing her.”
Dunn left the apartment, disposed of the knife and burned his clothes, according to records. Police later found the knife in an Irving Waffle House trash bin, where Dunn had said it could be found.
Bolden, a Dallas native, worked as a hairdresser and lived with her two children, said Jeffrey Busby, her son’s father.
“I just can’t believe she’s gone,” he said. “It’s hard having to answer the kids’ questions. I don’t know what to say. … I don’t know why anybody would do something like that.” - dallasnews.com
