There’s more to this story , he wasn’t allowed to own a gun ,was it his gun but registered in her name or was both of them not allowed to own a gun .He’s old enough to be her dad just about in age difference. I would say much more than just booze involved the word Heroin comes to mind .If it was Russian roulette were they just looking for a easy way out from their addictions .He has 4 kids on welfare and he was on disability…. There has been a train wreck on the tracks for a long time now

They were playing ” Russian Roulette” so NOT a murder both were drinking and playing with the gun and the husband wanted to play Russian Roulette. When it came to the spin of her turn she yelled that the gun went off. Det4ective Evan Stradley from Santa Maria PD original, came to SLOPD as he would not be promoted to detective so SLOPD made him a Detective.

He has a brief history of making bad calls on cases, this is a case of two drunks bored and playing “Russian Roulette again” NOT a Premeditated PC 187 Murder but the DA wants to make a “Media Splash” all false, just look at the man found deceased on Marsh st in unit 240 at above Habitat furniture another bad call.


Never trust someone who has been a chronic liar and is even disowned by their own brother and been fired from multiple police departments.

Too bad Ross Perot was so gullible.

We’re you there? Is that a usual Friday night for this couple?

Participating in an unlawful reckless act where a death occurs as a result will at least get her convicted of manslaughter. Russian roulette isn’t always played “Dear Hunter” style, sometimes the other participant pulls the trigger.

What does the employment history of the SLOPD detective have to do with the facts of this case? Sounds like you know the whole story, do tell.

I guess she got sick of him clipping his toenails on the bed
