Florida Woman Is Killed By Boyfriend Hours After Police Tell Her to Stop Calling 911
Police officers are supposed to protect and serve, but in the case of this domestic dispute, the ball was dropped. In Sanford, Fl., three hours before Latina Herring’s boyfriend murdered her and her 8-year-old son and attempted to murder her father, her 8-year-old son and bystanders, she called the police on him.
On Monday, March 27 at 3:20 AM, the police responded to a call at a Wawa where Herring and her boyfriend Allen Cashe were arguing.
In the body camera video, Cashe can be seen and heard saying, “I don’t have her house keys.”
“Man, you got my keys,” yells Herring.
“I’m not trying to play games,” said Cashe. “You have an attitude coming home from the club drunk.”
Twenty minutes after that, Herring calls police again to a home on Hays Drive. The police footage shows the officers not taking Herring’s concerns seriously.
“She’s making false accusations,” said an officer. “It’s the second time she’s done it.”
An officer even tells Herring to “stop calling 911.”
“We’re going to handle it. Just stop calling 911 and making accusations that you don’t know about.”
Three hours after that, around 6:30 AM, Cashe comes back to Herring’s home with his AK-47 killing her, her 8-year-old son and injuring her father and 7-year-old son.
Cashe was arrested after he fled Herring’s house and shot two bystanders and was tracked down by officers near the Seminole Garden Apartments.
“I can’t stress enough that this scene is one of the worst that our officers and investigators have ever responded to,” said Sanford spokeswoman Bianca Gillett. “It’s horrific.”
Herring’s friends are disappointed because they believe the police could have stopped the situation.
“Sanford’s PD is a big disappointment to me and to others,” said Ladasha Beasley, Herring’s friend.
“To protect and serve who man? Who? Justice needs to be served.”
