Who goes to visit their mom with a bullet proof vest on their body? Apparently, I must be sheltered....
Strickland told police he knew his mom had a license to carry a concealed weapon. And? So what did he think was going to go down and why did he go there?
Strickland hadn't been around in years according to his stepsister. There's been a long running feud. He also had his young daughter murdered in Colorado in 2011.
He's active duty in the military. Well, he was.
This isn't relevant to the current case, but fyi regarding the accused.
Wonder what happened with his mom?
Son accused of killing mother had tragic past, investigators say
Strickland has a tragic past, officials say. He was a member of the U.S. Army and stationed at Fort Carson Colorado in November 2011.
According to officials, Strickland's then girlfriend, Melissa Alexander, 27, was babysitting his 1-year old daughter Jocilyn on Nov. 9, 2011 at a Colorado Springs apartment. Strickland was at Fort Polk, La. for military training.
Alexander admitted to dropping the child twice and violently throwing a sippy cup at her, according to investigators. The child later died at a hospital from her injuries.
"I know she did it, just to hear it from her instead of everybody else would make it a lot easier on me," said Strickland back in 2011. Alexander had advertised her babysitting services around her apartment complex.
She was watching Jocilyn, her own young child, and another neighbor's child at the time. Alexander is facing first-degree murder charges in the child's death.
