Brown, who is held at a correctional facility, was charged with two counts of aggravated first-degree murder and could face the death penalty if convicted, KIRO 7 reports. He was also wanted for a robbery and attempted carjacking in New Jersey.
Ahmed Said, 27, and Dwone Anderson-Young, 23, were found shot to death June 1 in Seattle’s Leschi neighborhood. Prosecutors accuse Brown of targeting the men on mobile dating apps for gay men before meeting them outside R Place, a gay club, that night.
In court documents released July 2, prosecutors say Brown allegedly planned the attack and that Seattle police were investigating the case as a possible anti-gay hate crime, reports KIRO 7.
According to the documents, Said communicated with Brown on a gay dating app “like Grindr or Jack’d” while at the nightclub and told friends there he was meeting someone that night. Shortly after the bar closed, the victims met Brown and then drove to Anderson-Young’s house in Leschi, at which point police say Brown shot them multiple times and stole Said’s car. Evidence collected by homicide investigators suggests the victims were “essentially executed,” according to the report.
Additionally, prosecutors said that homicide investigators linked Brown to the murders after finding fingerprints and 9mm casings in Said’s car, which was found abandoned in South Seattle.
A few months ago, I bemoaned dating in Taipei and my lack of options for finding a decent long-term relationship prospect here in Taiwan. I blamed it on my status as an expat-slash-traveller…, the kind of person who is often seen as undesirable for dating due to their propensity to up and move sticks more frequently than your average person. Now I’m starting to rethink my stance. Maybe the problem isn’t that I travel a lot. Heck, that seems
I have a confession to make: I haven’t been eating out all that often lately. Heck, I’ve barely been eating out at all over the past couple of months, as I’ve been whipping my butt back into shape after gaining a ridiculous amount of weight over both Christmas and my first few months in Taiwan, partially due to not having a proper kitchen, partially because of bacon pancakes. OK, mainly because of bacon pancakes. And, you know, not really exercising.…
