A steamy chat distracted an officer when she entered the wrong apartment and killed a man [View all]

A steamy chat distracted an officer when she entered the wrong apartment and killed a man, prosecutors say

As she walked to her apartment on the night of Sept. 6, 2018, Amber Guyger missed a series of signs that she wasn’t on the right floor, prosecutors say.

The off-duty Dallas police officer didn’t realize that the illuminated unit numbers contained fours instead of the threes of a floor below, where she lived. She didn’t recognize the doormats were all different. And, in the final seconds before she turned the doorknob to apartment 1478 and opened fire on the man who lived there, 26-year-old Botham Jean, she didn’t notice the doormat he’d placed outside. It was red — his favorite color.

During opening statements Monday in Guyger’s murder trial, prosecutors offered a reason: She was distracted by the sexually explicit conversation she had been having with her partner on the police force, Martin Rivera.

They had been in an intimate relationship for the past year, prosecutors say, and spent hours swapping messages about being “super horny” and wanting to meet later that night. After a 16-minute phone call with Rivera, Guyger was so consumed that she didn’t process the “repeatedly obvious signs” that something wasn’t right, Assistant Dallas County District Attorney Jason Hermus told jurors.

“All of these things that she’s aware of, she just doesn’t let them get here,” he said, gesturing toward his head. “And that failure cost Bo his life.”


If a woman feels super horny she kills a man? Sounds like a praying mantis or black widow spider.
