Kimberly Boone (Myspace)
Winter Springs, Florida–Believe it or not, we have another case of convenient amnesia on the front page of the Dreamin’ Demon. Who’da thunk? Kimberly Boone, 42, is being accused of shooting her husband. But, during interrogation, Boone claimed to have amnesia and couldn’t recall a damn thing. Tell ya what Kimberly, I’m feeling generous, so how about I help you out with that ‘memberin’ thing, ok?
Seminole County Sheriff’s detectives received a call Sunday morning reporting a man had been shot by an intruder. Upon arrival at the home, officers found 41-year-old Robert Boone with a gun shot wound to the center of his chest. He told detectives he’d been shot, but he didn’t know who did it.
Detectives were suspicious from the onset. They saw no signs of a legitimate burglary; no signs of forced entry. After searching the house, they found the couple’s gun, a .357 revolver, the same type of gun used to shoot Robert, outside in the yard. Ballistics and fingerprints on the weapon proved that Robert was shot by his wife, Kimberly Boone.
Detectives replayed the 911 call Kimberly made that morning. Robert could be heard in the background asking, ‘Did you shoot me?’ Kimberly replied, ‘Of course I didn’t shoot you.’ Detectives knew better. During interrogation, Kimberly first denied the accusations. Then she claimed she had amnesia and couldn’t remember anything. She finally fessed to shooting at her husband three times. Imagine her surprise when her husband didn’t die after taking one to the chest. This is how authorities think it all played out….
At about 5:00 a.m. Sunday morning, Kimberly woke her husband and told him she heard a strange noise coming from the garage. Being a good husband, Robert dragged himself out of bed and went to check. He came back and reported to Kimberly that he didn’t see or hear anything. He crawled back under the covers. About 20 minutes later, Kimberly hears the phantom noise again. This time, she tells her husband that she’ll check it out.
She’s standing in the dark garage when she yells out for her husband. Robert, in a panic, jumps out of bed and rushes to the garage. As he’s looking for his wife in the dark, she shoots him. Three times. She discarded the gun in the grass outside of the garage.
She ran back in the house to call 911 to report a potential burglary. At first, Robert thought his wife had shot him accidentally, thinking he was a burglar. No Robert, she knew it was you…she wants you dead. Luckily, the one shot she managed to land hit him in the chest and exited straight out of his back without touching any organs. He is now recovering.
This may not be the first time Kimberly has tried to take her husband’s life. About three months ago, Kimberly went to run errands while her husband was asleep in bed, and wouldn’t ya know it? A fire erupted in the home. In that incident, a neighbor saved Robert’s life. Authorities will now be taking another look at that fire to determine whether it was accidental or premeditated. I’m going with the latter….
Kimberly Boone didn’t only try to shoot her husband dead in the garage, she did so while the couple’s two children were asleep in the home. The children are safe and are now staying with grandparents while their father recovers. Kimberly has been charged with one count of attempted first degree murder and is being held at the Seminole County Jail.
