According to police reports, Zaiylah — a  victim of domestic violence — told Alex she was sick and tired of being his punching bag and she wanted out of the relationship. A bout of contretemps ensued. As the quarrel intensified, Alex strangled Zaiylah with his bare hands then dumped her lifeless body into the trunk of his car. His mother descried the cadaver and called police. Surveillance footage also shows Alex carrying Zaiylah’s blanket-wrapped corpse with her feet dangling out to his vehicle before driving off.

The simp was arrested and charged with capital murder.

Investigators later learned Alex planned Zaiylah’s quietus. He Googled “snapping necks” a day prior for information regarding “stun guns, lethal weapons, and weapons that can kill.” Detectives also found duct tape, bottled water, clothes, flashlights, trash bags and towels in Alex’s backpack. “I got scared. I was over at her place; I didn’t know what to do,” he told interrogators.

Alex said Zaiylah broke up with him then spent time talking “on the phone with another male.”

So he grabbed her around the neck and squeezed “until she stopped moving.”

  9. As a combat veteran, the best advice i could give young women would be to stay as far away from active duty military guys and cops. The domestic violence stats in cops specifically is insane.

  10. These women play to many games and that’s why the men are killing them.

  16. She found herself a new man and was about to sue for child support. Dude snapped.

  17. He absolutely 100% planned this. The tools in his trunk are indicative of a murder kit. IDK if his conscience hit or his mother’s threats made him confess, but at least he did so this family can have closure.

  18. Sorry to say! But young Women play too many games with their Life. Stop playing with these weak minded Boys..why provoke a reaction from him you can’t handle. Walk away if you feel threatened and don’t provoke the situation.

  19. @Stephen Oconnell: you are gross. No one deserves to be murdered. She was 19, and never even got to experience her life. Go touch some grass.


  21. So sad! In spite of all her many good qualities, she showed an appalling immaturity, trying to start a new new relationship while pregnant And his immature jealousy proved to be his undoing
