Derrick and Linda Yancey on dreamindemon.com

Here is a story out of Georgia that I am really interested in. Police received a 911 emergency call at 1:10 p.m. that there were two victims at 5515 Mountain View Pass. Derrick Yancey, a DeKalb County sheriff’s deputy states that he was at his home when an unknown male intruder came into the house and shot his wife Linda Yancey, 44, to death. Derrick Yancey told investigators he then shot the stranger to death.


Once our officers arrived, they did find two people deceased inside, a male and a female,” said DeKalb County police spokesperson Mekka Parrish. “According to the homeowner, an unknown man shot and killed his wife and he was then forced to shoot that unknown man inside his home.

Anyone have flags going off with even that little bit if information? I dunno why I jumped right to a scenario in which the deputy walked in on his wife and this stranger…but the stranger was not shooting his wife. Pure speculation of course, but it was just the first thing that popped into my head. I’m a cynical optimist. I’ll update the story as more information is revealed

    There was a case some time ago where a man set up a guy in order to kill his wife.

    Wife had gotten weirded out by a taxi driver. Husband called taxi company and complained. He then called the driver and asked him to come over to discuss the situation.

    When the driver got there, hubby had beaten his wife to death, then shot the driver. He planted the gun on the dead driver.

    Wonder if this is going to be a similar story.

    I think people are pretty fucking stupid sometimes. If my husband was a peace officer and I knew carried a gun most of the time I sure wouldn’t be bringing my side “piece o meat” around to the house.
    Was everyone fully clothed? Did she have the other guys DNA evidence in her? All questions I will patiently wait for answers on….

    So she was banging this guy and hubby caught them, should have got a hotel.

    My hubby told me a story about a guy who lived in a trailer park in Southern Illinois. He came home to a rocking trailer and found his wife banging some dude. It was around Thanksgiving and they had a frozen turkey, he killed them both with it. He then cooked it and called the cops while he was eating it. He supposingly got off on temporary insanity. So moral of the story use frozen turkey bludgeon your victim bast and eat before calling cops :D

    Here’s the link from Fox5 Atlanta. They have been following the story since it broke.

    Even though they used day laborers often for landscaping, a lot of folks around here seem to go with the opinion that:

    He may have brought this guy home to use as a “pawn” in his game of lets get rid of the wife without them pinning it on me…

    And he could of course shoot the laborer in “self-Defense” of the guy having a gun and “robbing” them.

    Dead dudes don’t talk. They are reporting that they don’t yet have an identity for the laborer. He may well be an undocumented illegal. They often don’t carry ID because if you can’t prove that they aren’t illegal, then they can “be here” legally. That’s the reason for all the day laborer sites around Atlanta metro area. No documentation, under the table work.

    Yep. Of COURSE, the reporters would never insinuate THAT possibility…

    Mr and Mrs were both police officers and I am sure he has pondered and pre-meditated how he could do this and get away with it.

    I wonder if they will find any powder residue or blood splatter on the laborer- Since he was supposedly the one who shot the Mrs…!

    THAT may turn the story in the right direction.

    [Excerpts] DECATUR, Ga. — A grand jury returned an indictment Thursday charging a DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputy with two counts of murder in the deaths of his wife and a day laborer inside his home last June. A grand jury warrant was issued for the arrest of Derrick Yancey, who turned himself into the DeKalb County jail Thursday afternoon. Yancey was searched personally by Sheriff Thomas Brown, booked, and then moved to an undisclosed jail for his own protection. Assistant District Attorney Don Geary said Yancey, who resigned from the department last month, was informed of the indictment about noon Thursday. Yancey claimed that Marcial Cax-Puluc was an intruder who shot and killed his wife, Linda, during a robbery attempt inside the couple’s two-story brick home on June 9. Yancey said he then killed Cax-Puluc, who had arrived in the United States just six weeks earlier from Guatemala… The indictment also charges Yancey with two weapons offenses of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
    And then this:

    Thursday, August 28, 2008
    Former DeKalb County sheriff’s deputy Derrick Yancey can await his double murder trial under house arrest and a $150,000 bond, a judge ruled Thursday.
    The ruling drew a response from a representative for two siblings of Yancey’s wife, whom Yancey is accused of killing. An attorney who said she spoke on behalf of the siblings of Linda Yancey said the DeKalb district attorney’s office failed to do enough to prevent Yancey’s release.
    “It appears Mr. Yancey is receiving preferential treatment as a result of his previous employment with the DeKalb County court system,” said a statement issued by lawyer Loletha Denise Hale, who said she spoke for Eugene Thomas and Gloria Thomas Sanders.
    Asked about the statement, chief assistant district attorney Don Geary said Yancey “will be treated as any other criminal defendant charged in DeKalb County. We will vigorously prosecute within the limits of the law, and we will do everything we can to be mindful and considerate of the wishes of the victims’ family.”

    The murder trial of ex-DeKalb County sheriff’s deputy Derrick Yancey will be delayed until early 2009.
    Yancey earlier had invoked his right to a speedy trial on charges that he shot to death his wife and a day laborer in his home June 9. Under Georgia law, his trial would have had to begin in December.
    But defense lawyer Keith Adams said Monday he had withdrawn the speedy trial demand because Yancey’s case might have overlapped with an unrelated case involving Adams.
    Adams said he and the district attorney’s office have asked Superior Court Judge Linda Hunter to schedule the trial next year, possibly in February or March.
    Yancey, 49, claimed he shot Marcial Cax Puluc after the laborer, who was about 20, killed Linda Yancey in an armed robbery attempt. Prosecutors allege Derrick Yancey killed them both but have not disclosed a possible motive.

    Obviously, hasn’t gone to trial yet, but I’ll keep checking…….

    Truly sad, Asterpiece thought he could get away with it….Once again, I am amazed!

    [Excerpts] DECATUR, Ga. — A grand jury returned an indictment Thursday charging a DeKalb County Sheriff’s deputy with two counts of murder in the deaths of his wife and a day laborer inside his home last June. A grand jury warrant was issued for the arrest of Derrick Yancey, who turned himself into the DeKalb County jail Thursday afternoon. Yancey was searched personally by Sheriff Thomas Brown, booked, and then moved to an undisclosed jail for his own protection. Assistant District Attorney Don Geary said Yancey, who resigned from the department last month, was informed of the indictment about noon Thursday. Yancey claimed that Marcial Cax-Puluc was an intruder who shot and killed his wife, Linda, during a robbery attempt inside the couple’s two-story brick home on June 9. Yancey said he then killed Cax-Puluc, who had arrived in the United States just six weeks earlier from Guatemala… The indictment also charges Yancey with two weapons offenses of possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

    Former DeKalb County sheriff’s deputy Derrick Yancey can await his double murder trial under house arrest and a $150,000 bond, a judge ruled Thursday.
    The ruling drew a response from a representative for two siblings of Yancey’s wife, whom Yancey is accused of killing. An attorney who said she spoke on behalf of the siblings of Linda Yancey said the DeKalb district attorney’s office failed to do enough to prevent Yancey’s release.
    “It appears Mr. Yancey is receiving preferential treatment as a result of his previous employment with the DeKalb County court system,” said a statement issued by lawyer Loletha Denise Hale, who said she spoke for Eugene Thomas and Gloria Thomas Sanders.
    Asked about the statement, chief assistant district attorney Don Geary said Yancey “will be treated as any other criminal defendant charged in DeKalb County. We will vigorously prosecute within the limits of the law, and we will do everything we can to be mindful and considerate of the wishes of the victims’ family.”

    UPDATED: 5:09 pm EDT June 4, 2009

    DECATUR, Ga. — Derrick Yancey, the ex-deputy accused of killing his wife and a day laborer, is seen on video leaving the area, officials say.

    The video, which was released by DeKalb County Sheriff Thomas Brown on Thursday, shows Yancey on April 4 at Atlanta’s greyhound bus station. Yancey was sporting a mustache and wearing a do-rag on his head.

    Investigators said he bought a ticket from Atlanta to Los Angeles.

    Security guards at the bus station didn’t even notice him, and with good reason — Yancey had quite the head start on authorities.

    Officials said he had cut off his ankle monitor, but 11 hours would pass before the monitoring company would report the breach to authorities.

    He was last spotted at a bus station in Phoenix, Az. Authorities believe he could be anywhere between Phoenix and Los Angeles or even in Mexico.

    “We do know that he is quite proficient in the Spanish language,” Brown said.

    Yancey’s wife Linda, who was also a DeKalb County deputy, and a day laborer were shot to death in Yancey’s home in Stone Mountain in June 2008.

    Yancey claimed the day laborer was an intruder, and that he shot the man after he shot and killed Yancey’s wife.

    Yancey was later indicted for both murders, but a judge allowed Yancey out on bond with the ankle monitor… the one he later cut.

    Authorities said they believe Yancey has likely changed his appearance again.

    They also learned something else.

    “Weeks before he disappeared, he applied to receive a lump sum payment of his pension that he had contributed to DeKalb County,” Brown said.

    That pension was worth $18,000, which the sheriff said was divided among family members.

    The sheriff said those relatives may have helped Yancey leave the area. The relatives are now persons of interest in the case, Brown said.

    Authorities are offering a $10,000 reward for information that leads to Yancey’s recapture.

    Officials said he had cut off his ankle monitor, but 11 hours would pass before the monitoring company would report the breach to authorities.

    Yancey was under orders to stay at his mother’s home in Jonesboro, just south of Atlanta, when he removed his ankle monitor and left. The monitoring firm BI Inc. of Colorado received an alert on Yancey’s bracelet at 5:41 a.m. April 4, but the sheriff’s office was not notified for hours

    Agents with the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security tracked Yancey and located him at a local bar in Punta Gora, Belize.

    looks like a wonderful place, Diplomatic Security – who?

    State department agents in Belize got a tip on Yancey’s whereabouts and tracked him to a local bar on Saturday evening. Authorities said an agent tapped him on the shoulder and told him, “It’s time to go.”

    Authorities refused to identify the tipster, who stands to collect a $20,000 reward.

    Yancey is expected to be returned to the U.S. within days.

    haha good for the snitch hehe

    how terribly sad, besides the fact the heat was running, 100 degrees in that room. I am going to suspect carbon monoxide, both boys (twins) died

    My first thought is that this “stranger” was caught by this cop doing something criminal. so the cop told him that he wouldn't arrest him if he did him a favor. So, the guy goes in and kills cop's wife(as a favor), and cop kills guy to make sure he can't narc him out..

    Ok, so I guess u didn’t update. First, it wasn’t an intruder. Derek Yancey had gone & hired a Guatemalan man who was trying to send money back home to his family. He then said that the man tried to rob his wife when he left & went outside or something along those lines. Linda Yancey & the other man were both innocent. It was wrong of him to kill either of them, but it never ceases to amaze me when a person can kill their spouse!!! This couple were high school sweethearts!!! I will never understand how he could do that to her. Money is just that; money. How he could murder his wife over it is beyond me. For what??? Stuff doesn’t replace a person!!!
