Last night I met my friend Jen at a meeting in Summerlin. It was great. I knew a lot of people there. Amazing how I relapse and disappear for years on end and then I come back to recovery meetings and a lot of the same faces are STILL there. Crazy how that works huh?? I met Jen a few years back when she first moved to Las Vegas. I introduced her to people and picked her up and took her to meetings. Well, she stayed clean and now she has 6 years. She got married and everything. If only I would have stayed clean too I'd have more than 6 years. But, oh well. Can't live in the past. She caught me up on all the NA gossip. Of course I missed a lot but now I think I'm thoroughly caught up :-)
I really don't have anything too exciting to talk about.
This is a crazy story that I've been obsessed with because it literally happened two streets away from my house....
A search for a missing mother and daughter in North Las Vegas has uncovered a gruesome crime scene leading to a family member's arrest.
Police believe Darius Davon Sorrells, 30, killed his mother and sister then butchered at least one of their bodies before living in their home for days as their remains decomposed.
Though police had repeatedly visited the home over the weekend to make contact with the women, this time they reported finding a backdoor left open.
"Without going into great detail, there is a lot of evidence," Sgt. Chrissie Coon said at a Monday afternoon press conference, according to the Journal.
Coon described it as a "pretty gruesome homicide," with at least one victim dismembered. The weapon used has not been identified but police said it was not a gun.
"It appears, based on the timeframe and the evidence in the house that the murder suspect was probably in the home with these women deceased for several days," Coon said. "Steps were taken to try to clean up the crime scene and contain evidence."
Once authorities were able to identify the bodies they then went to work looking for Sorrells' brother and Burden's son.
Fortunately for police they found him already behind bars on an unrelated traffic charge from over the weekend.
In that early Saturday morning incident he was allegedly seen driving drunk by police, leading to a wild chase. Sorrells crashed into a light pole as police tailed him and he was captured after attempting to flee on foot.
"It was unclear at the time why he ran from police," said Coon. Also unclear on Tuesday was a motive for the slayings.
