âShe killed me so I killed her.â
According to a Dallas Police arrest affidavit, that is the reason 36-year-old Larry Dunn offered detectives for stabbing to death Cicely Bolden, who, as we noted this morning, was found Thursday afternoon in her southeast Oak Cliff apartment by her children returning home from school.
Police say the 28-year-old Bolden was found at 3:38 yesterday, undressed from the waist down and stabbed repeatedly in her neck. Officers called to the scene spoke to family and friends, who told them sheâd been dating a man named Larry. And, they told officers: Bolden and Larry may have had a âheated disagreementâ over the fact Bolden had tested HIV-positive.
Detectives found Dunn, who, police say, agreed to come down to DPD headquarters. Detectives read him his Miranda rights. He said he understood âand was willing to talk about the case,â says the affidavit; which he did, for a camera and microphone. And this, according to the affidavit, is what he said.
He told detectives heâd gone to the apartment to have sex with Bolden, and that after theyâd finished she told him she was HIV-positive â" and âthat it is not that bad.â Bolden told detectives he was âupsetâ she hadnât mentioned this before theyâd had sex. So, according to the affidavit, âhe got up out of bed and walked to the kitchen and got a knife,â and began stabbing her â" twice, he told detectives. She put up a brief struggle. Then, she fell to the floor, dead.
âShe killed me,â Dunn said, âso I killed her.â
Dunn told detectives he left, and that he burned his clothes. He said he tossed the knife in the dumpster of a Waffle House in Irving, which Dallas Police say they eventually recovered.
Concludes the affidavit: âSuspect Dunnâs statement is consistent with the crime scene.â
He now sits in the Dallas County Jail charged with murder, his bond set at $500,000.
