17-Year-Old Teenager Is Killed By Ex-Boyfriend, Days after Posting About the Domestic Violence She Suffered


Just two days to her 18th birthday, Lashonda Childs was killed by her obsessive ex-boyfriend, Trendell Goodwin.

Lashonda had tried to break up with 28-year old Goodwin, who lied that he was 20, but he wouldn’t take no for an answer. Moreover, Goodwin had been abusive towards Lashonda that he once bit her in the arm and it drew blood.

So, she got a restraining order from the police but it wasn’t served because Goodwin avoided it.

On the day of the incidence, Lashonda called the police and gave them her address but before they arrived, she had been shot by Goodwin.

Sadly, before the unfortunate incidence, Lashonda wrote on her Facebook page, the abuse she’s going through, including been held at gun point and not being safe even in her own house.

All jokes aside tho, everybody want a crazy nigga until he got you hiding & dodging bullets. If you see the signs don't…
