This crime happened last October. Did you ever hear about in? Imagine if the races were reversed? This would have been the media event of the decade. It would have knocked Trayvon Martin out of the news.
This crime mirrors what we are seeing in South Africa. An extremely cruel and horrific multiple killing, combined with an extremely low personal gain. The killers netted $170 by taking the victim’s personal possessions. The media likes to call this type of gruesome crime a “robbery.” Theft was an afterthought.
The Denver media continues to call the quintuple murder a “robbery,” even though police say ringleader Dexter Lewis was specifically targeting two of the female victims.
Young Fero was the owner of Fero’s Bar and Grill. She had kicked Dexter Lewis out of the bar. Lewis told a police informant that he was going to “get those bitches” immediately before the murder spree. He referenced Young Fero and said another woman inside the bar had evicted him from his apartment.
Lewis had two accomplices, Lynell Hill, 25, and Joseph Hill, 27, who both pleaded guilty last week. They will testify against Lewis as part of a plea deal. The DA is seeking the death penalty for Dexter B. Lewis. This is the first time a DA in Denver has sought the death penalty since 2001.
All three perps are black males. The victims are four whites and an Asian.
Those killed were bar owner Young Fero, 63; Daria M. Pohl, 21; Kellene Fallon, 44; Ross Richter, 29; and Tereasa Beesley, 45.
