(Parks and Recreation; season 6, episode 21: Moving Up)
On August 17, 2002 Justin Barber and April Barber, an apparently happy and loving couple celebrated their third wedding anniversary with dinner at an italian restaurant, followed by visiting the Guana River State Park beach late at night. What starts off as a romantic and beautiful story tragically ends in the murder of April Barber. While walking along the beach expecting nothing bad, a man with a gun rushed to Justin and April, demanding money while wounding the couple, eventually killing April with a single shot. Justin realized that his wife was dead and tried to search for help, but there was no one to reach out to at the time. He intended to carry her body to his car but couldn’t due to his injuries so he left her at the beach and drive off, looking for help. When he had found someone who was offering to help him called the police, he was transferred to a hospital while the police was searching up the beach for April. After finding April, the immediate search for her murderer began. The police had no clues at the beginning, but suspicion fell later on Justin himself. There were just some facts that seemed unusual to investigators, such as Justin leaving his phone at home this particular night and not using his wife’s phone to call for help. It quickly emerged that the marriage of the Barbers had not been a happy one and the fact was supported by several family members and friends of April. Later research revealed that Justin had an affair with a woman named Shannon Kennedy and that April speculated that Justin may be unfaithful circa two months before she was murdered. She had confronted him about her concerns but he denied it whenever she tried to talk with him about it. Prior to that in 2001, after a mere three years of marriage, a $2 Million life insurance was issued by Justin on April and himself. There was also a rumor that April told Justin about divorce plans. However, the most striking evidence just waited to be discovered on his laptop after investigators recovered parts of his internet history. On February 9, 2002 he looked up various famous murder cases. On August 17, 2002 just hours before murdering his wife, he downloaded “Used To Love Her” by Guns N’ Roses. The following lines are from the actual song:
I used to love her But I had to kill her I had to put her six feet under And I can still hear her complain
Justin Barber was convicted for the murder of April Barber and was senteced to life without parole.
i really hate how many hugely talented and charismatic groups go unnoticed. like i know they can’t logically all be popular, but i still hope during each comeback that this one will be the one that finally brings them success
So I’m currently out of state but I just saw a post about the billdip theme for today on tumblr (flowers!!) and I just so happened to have this on my phone from last week when I was testing out a flower crown I just bought. What good timing!
