LEESBURG, Fla. — The adventures of Pookie & Ray Ray continue. Convicted felon Alphonza Bryant was thrown in the slammer after he murdered 37-year-old Melissa Smith because she no longer wanted to date him. The femicide transpired August 8th in Leesburg, Florida. According to police reports, Alphonza showed up at Melissa’s residence unannounced when she ghosted him after one week of dating. Yep, they only dated one week and dude was sprung. The jilted malefactor then broke into Melissa’s residence, shot her dead and fled the premises. Melissa’s mom was in the home but she was sleep and didn’t hear the shooting. When she woke up, she found Melissa’s corpse in the laundry room riddled with gunshot wounds. Poor Melissa was washing her panties, minding her own damn business when the n*gga killed her. A family friend told investigators Alphonza got his ass kicked by a neighbor the previous day for treating Melissa like sh*t at her dinner soirée.

So the crime was definitely premeditated.

The thug sought revenge and he got it.

Alphonza, 40, was already locked up in the Lake County Jail on an unrelated charge when Leesburg police detectives and the State Attorney’s office provided substantial corroboration to have him charged with first-degree murder, armed burglary and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. “We hope these charges allow for some level of healing and relief for the family and friends of Ms. Smith,” a spokesperson with the Leesburg Police Department said in a statement. “We would especially like to thank our community for their assistance with this investigation.”

Alphonza was manumitted last October after serving 20 years in prison for armed robbery.

He also has a history of domestic violence.

Chalk outlines are piling up.

Ladies, please leave Pookie & Ray Ray alone.

It ain’t worth it.

Buy a dildo.

Watch the sad report.

  1. He had a lot of nerves with his tore up self 😡 Prayers for the Family 🙏🏾

  2. This is so awful 😞 it’s like prison is a luxury for these bums they sleep eat three meals a day and go outside. It’s not enough punishment while the victim family deals with a life time of hurt. Rip young lady 🙏🏻

  3. They must’ve been drinking? I had neighbors that drinked and had parties. It was always a fight and sometimes the police were called.

  4. Looks can be deceiving but he wears his hard exterior like a badge. He reeks, “I had a hard life and did time in prison.” I’m sure if she knew his history, he would have been history. Scary that if she was in her home instead of the laundry room, her mother could have been shot. Condolences to her heartbroken mom, friends, and family. 😥😥😥


  6. He’s a coward. He got his butt whooped & came back to kill this beautiful woman! Didn’t have that much power without that gun. Sad we need to give these men life in prison. Thats the only it will stop other ppl from becoming more victims.

  7. Hopefully the guards and inmates are taking turns STOMPING his @$$ out as I’m typing this, Ladies you have got to be more careful especially when meeting or messing with garbage like him. Sometimes a good heart ♥️ can get you harmed….

  8. He looks untrustworthy. I watch eyes. Sometimes they don’t show a spirit but keep studying them that demon in them will show up. I saw a dude once he looked at me and I just happened to look at him in the street and it’s been many years ago. The evilness in his stare still haunts me when I think of it today.

  9. He left jail, but jail didn’t leave him. He looks way older than 40. RIP sis. Bless her soul

  10. Then men wonder why nobody wants to date them… They come in headfirst with mental health issues! This is so sad smh

  11. Ladies PLEASE stop inviting these nakers to your home!!! Especially when you barely know them.

  12. I’m so glad I’m single I don’t do all that dating site I don’t want to meet nobody new and they got Google so you can pull up anybody’s past y’all ladies need to start using it be careful be safe and quit being so desperate and trusty and quit bringing people to your home

  13. There is no way Alphonso Bryant was 40 years old 😳…RIP Melissa, this is sad and senseless!

  14. Nooo! Ladies !!! NEVER let a man/person know where you live after only one week of knowing them 💔😢🤦🏾‍♀️😤

  15. Please protect yourself ladies. Even the Bible says to guard your heart. That includes your body, your home, mind and energy. If we are in the last days these men are getting worse. Now is not the time to date haphazardly. You’re better off not dating during this time.

  16. Dating a week & he kills her. Lord this is crazy. Rest in paradise sweet angel

  17. Some ppl are lost causes and he is one. You beat a woman but can’t beat a man. What’s more insane is they was only together for 7 days. At his age he still committing crimes and going back and forth to jail. It’s pathetic beyond sad. He had a Gun and smoke for the woman but nothing for the man.

  18. If these females learn to respect themselves, alot of them will still be alive

  19. I’m afraid it’s time to start running a criminal background check before getting involved with anyone. Condolences to her family and friends.

  20. I am really baffled that this young lady was only dating him for a week and he already start putting his hands on her and then kill her. Women please do your research on these men before you get into any type of relationship, because it is just getting more and more ridiculous out here. This is utterly sad 😥

  21. I met someone online but never went out with him i waited almost a year to then go out with him .. man I don’t trust online dudes

  22. WoW! This is a lesson to all females looking for love on dating apps Don’t do it. Rip

  23. We black women need to be mindful. Don’t invite any one in your home you don’t know. It does not pay being nice to people. People getting crazy out here.

  24. What a pos. A man checked him, so he waited for her to be alone to take her life? I’m so sad for this family.

  25. R.I.P Melissa what a shame only 1 week dating and this happen. Problem is, there is no justice in America.

  26. These prison baes are not it.

    Research please

    Letting people in your home is not a good thing.

  27. Black women need to stop chasing thugs and take care of their kids these women are desperate sex can not be that serious. He looks like a piece of crap that goes after insecure women.

  28. Thank goodness my dad always told me to vet ( run a background check) on every man I dated. I’ve only ever dated white collar men, but that doesn’t mean anything in the day and age we’re living in. My heart hurts for Melissa’s family.

  29. “The BIBLE” Greatest Book Ever Written.
    Last Days Prophecy!
    Babylon The Great (America) has Fallen.

    2 TIMOTHY 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
    All Praises To The Most High and his Son, The Black Messiah.

    ELOHIM Righteous Judgment Is Upon America The Wicked!!!

  30. What a wimp. Could not stand up to a man but got a gun and shot a woman. Disgusting. He should never ever get out into society again.

  31. Wait 40 years old and spent 20 years in prison!!! Looking at him plus his background, he was just waiting for the right victim!!
