Curt Maynard kills ex-wife, then himself
Lake Jackson murder-suicide followed bitter divorce, woman's lawyer says
The Lake Jackson woman shot to death by her ex-husband before he killed himself during a police chase had gone through a bitter, contentious divorce from him and suffered personal attacks from him on the Internet, her attorney said on Thursday.
Melissa Meza, 34, a Dow Chemical engineer, was shot multiple times in the front yard of her home Wednesday night by 42-year-old Curtis Boone Maynard, a registered nurse, who later shot himself. The couple had been divorced for more than a year.
Maynard also shot his 16-year-old stepdaughter, Celeste Morales, in the face inside the home before fleeing in his car. Morales remains in stable condition at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center.
Maynard and Meza's two children, a 12-year-old girl and 2-year-old girl, fled to a neighbor's house and were not hurt, said Lake Jackson police Lt. Paul Kibodeaux
“The 12-year-old picked the 2-year-old up and ran to the neighbor's house — very brave,” Kibodeaux said.
Lenette Terry, the Angleton attorney who represented Meza in her divorce from Maynard, called the slain woman's ex-husband “a nut.”http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/metropolitan/6971280.html
Lone Wolf of Thy Weapon of War(a great blog by the way) was among the first to break this story.
I suppose if the story is as it's been portrayed, and the "lurid" details about Curt's political beliefs come to light, they'll paint him as another Von Brunn style crazed "right wing White Supremacist."
This turmoil has likely been brewing for a while now as Maynard first issued a notice a few months ago that he was "going on vacation" as far as Politically Incorrect Apostate was concerned, then several weeks after that, access to read his blog has been "by invitation only."
