A Sanford, Florida, woman who was told to stop calling 911 was murdered, KTRK reports.
Three hours before Latina Herring was allegedly killed by her boyfriend, Allen Cashe, Sanford police body camera footage captured her arguing with him.
The altercation took place at a convenience store around 3:20 a.m. Monday where cops initially answered a 911 call.
“I don’t have her house keys,” Cashe can be heard saying on the camera footage. “I’m not trying to play games. You have an attitude coming home from the club drunk.”
Twenty minutes later, police were called again to help mediate the disturbance. This time, they arrived at a home on Hays Drive. And according to video released by the department, officers appeared to dismiss Herring’s pleas.
“She’s making false accusations,” one officer said. “It’s the second time she’s done it.” At one point police reportedly even told Herring to “stop calling the police.”
“We’re going to handle it,” an officer told Herring. “Just stop calling 911 and making accusations that you don’t know about.”
In the video, police referred to the altercation as a “civil matter.”
It is unclear who called the police, but at one point, Cashe was handcuffed and placed in the back of a squad car. He was later released.
An officer can be heard saying, “I think he’s calling because he’s afraid he’s going to do something to her.”
Herring, along with her 8-year-old son are now dead. Cashe is accused of launching a shooting rampage, killing the two and attempting to kill Herring’s 7-year-old son, her father and two innocent bystanders.
Ladasha Beasley is a friend of Herring’s. She told the media outlet that Sanford police should have done more.
“Sanford PD’s a big disappointment to me and to others,” said Beasley. “To protect and serve who man? Who? Justice needs to be served.”
