Who Murdered Diane Yeager-Lombard?

Diane Yeager Lombard from her Myspace on Dreamin' Demon

Land O’Lakes, FL – She was a horsewoman, a dancer, an artistic soul, a “quiet woman”, say neighbors. Too quiet, Saturday night and into Sunday morning, because she was dead. Someone shot Diane Yeager-Lombard to death on her front porch on Saturday, May 3. Her body lay there after the shooting – a neighbor saw her, but thought she was sunbathing. But Diane didn’t move. She never moved again.

So what happened? Neighbors reported hearing a gunshot sometime after 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. Someone saw a blue truck speeding down the road not far from Diane’s home. Other than that, nobody saw much. Why neighbors thought she was sunbathing after five on a Saturday, I don’t know. It was probably still sunny then in Florida, but even so, it seems a little strange that nobody checked, if just to be sure she wasn’t asleep.

So who killed Diane Yeager-Lombard? Her Myspace page yields no real clues. The page is tasteful and pretty. Her daughter Erica, 19, is a major focus of Diane’s attention. She loved her horse and her Avalanche. She was trim and pretty and vain about her age – her Myspace says she’s 42, but really, she was 51. She pulled off 42, though. I’d have bought it, so good for her. There doesn’t seem to be a man in the picture – at least there wasn’t in March, when she last logged in. One eerie little aside: her Myspace link is http://www.myspace.com/youwillremembermewhen. And I have no doubt that’s true.

On the surface, there seems to be no motive for Diane Yeager-Lombard’s murder. Who would want to hurt a vibrant, intelligent woman? Who would just shoot and take off? The killing seems impersonal – more of an assassination or execution than a rage killing, unless there’s evidence being withheld.

Today, the Pasco County Sheriff’s Department says that on Thursday, May 1, Diane flagged down a passing deputy who was in her neighborhood to ask him a question. One neighbor says that Diane was having some trouble with a man who was doing yard work for her. Whatever the issue, Diane ended up filing a harassment report right then. The Sheriff’s office isn’t talking except to say that they are following leads and “keeping it close to the vest”.

I hope, for Diane Yeager-Lombard and for her daughter Erica, that the killer is found very soon.

Thanks, Lizard!
