Blind Man Beats Girlfriend To Death, Mistakenly?

While catching up on some island news a very terrifying case caught my attention. According to the Jamaica Star news site, a blind man had allegedly beaten his girlfriend to death. Shocking indeed. The man gave his statement in court on why he committed such a dreadful act. Apparently he ‘overreacted’ to what felt like a piece of board being pushed against his side, thinking it was a knife he immediately went in search of a piece of metal. As a result, his girlfriend was beaten to death.

This is just chilling. I can understand how on edge people are these days, but if someone had a knife at your side would that person allow you to search for a weapon to attack them with? The story just seems weird, and I can see why this man will undergo psychiatric evaluation, because this all seems too crazy to believe. 

What do you think?

  1. Jesus! How is that possible? Well, you know they say when you lose one sense the others heightened so…but I can’t see how he’d think it was someone trying to kill him when he was free to search about for a weapon to defend himself and didn’t she scream for him to stop while he was beating her? Something’s strange about this one…
