Forsythia Owen claims man she beat to death with bat was child molester (16)
There doesn't appear to be much mystery about who killed 42-year-old Denzle Rainey. According to a police report, Forsythia Owen, thirty, has admitted to beating Rainey to death using a baseball bat.
Big photos, video below.
However, Owen has told authorities she committed this gruesome act because Rainey had molested a child -- an assertion utterly rejected by his estranged wife.
Photos, video and details below.
There are no shortage of indications that Rainey was going through a difficult patch. According to 7News, he and his wife, Lisa Ewing Rainey, were at odds, and he wound up sleeping in an alley between the 3600 block of South Sherman and South Grant, not far from Owen's apartment.
Clues aplenty about his difficult situation can be seen on his Facebook page. Most of the photos in its album feature his kids, who pose in his profile photo. However, the thumbnail that accompanies this shot features a somber Rainey posing over the tombstone of a loved one. Here's a similar image from his page:
Moreover, Rainey's posts throughout the month of September grew increasingly desperate. Here are some examples:
