COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Rayshawn Laster pleaded guilty to fatally shooting his mother in the head last December, admitted doing so in a text to a neighbor and then provided updates on Facebook while on the run from police.

On December 30, police received a call from 49-year-old Brenda Laster-Taylor in regards to an argument she was having with her 26-year-old son, a known gang member. Laster had already fled the premises by time the officers arrived, but returned around 7:30 p.m. and shot his mother in the head while she talked on her cell phone.

He immediately admitted to shooting his mother in a text message to a neighbor that read, “i killed brenda.” After failing to carjack a man outside of a bar,  he posted as series of status updates on Facebook using a cell phone.

“To all my solids n my real friends. Forever hustlin. Even after death. Solid 4 life,” one read. At around 9 p.m. an update stated, “I’m sorry for nothing. My journey has come to an end.”

At  10:20 p.m. Laster realized it was almost over as the police dragnet closed in. “They are all over. Everywhere around me so its only a matter of time.” He was correct. Police had been tracking him by pinging the cell phone he was using, and by the next morning he was in police custody.

    Darwinism, dawg.

    I can only guess that this POS was dying to get caught. He should have just stayed in place.

    PSA: (I’m full of ‘em today) – If you’re on the run from police, avoid all modern technology, including GPS systems and cell phones.

  • TinyCyborg

    I like how one’s IQ is directly equivalent to how much they prioritize facebook… and I don’t really mean the Intelligence Quotient standardized testing, I mean are you are intelligent person, or do people shake their head when they see you across a parking lot because they know that if you’re not legally retarded you aught to be?

  • Gee

    Technology strikes again against the stupid……….. 

  • JohnQknowitall

    What a selfish bastard. I will go out on a limb and say she was probably a shitty parent who raised a shitty kid (I shitty kids with shitty parents of all economic levels/races/etc). Wanting money from the parent is always great fodder for argument.

    She didn’t deserve this, but he probably should have been banned from her house years before.

  • He probably shot her for ‘being a snitch.’

  • Eliza Berntsen

    Fucking genius 

  • Califboy

    We will waste a ton of money on prosecuting him and incarceration, when we should just drag him out back and put a bullet between his eyes.

  • sugarpie

    Wow what a bad ass.  He should move right up there in the heirachy for killing someone.  Although I admit, I’m not familiar with the gang award system, I don’t think you get a lot of credit for killing your unarmed, unaware, defenseless mother.  Coward. 

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    My Facebook updates are never this exciting.

  • Califboy

    Lets see your fb…… 🙂

  • newstarshipsmell

    Oh, Rayshawn… Your journey has *just begun.*

  • “To all my solids n my real friends. Forever hustlin. Even after death. Solid 4 life,”

    Allow the idiocy to sink in, people….this is what our world is coming to. He is sooo slappable, with his gansta posin….any man who can blindside a woman & kill her is NO gangsta……people like this make me sick because rather than compete in the real world of adult life, they are content with being a somebody in their narrow little world, which doesn’t take much. Just a disregard for human life….

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    Food for thought:
    If you need to post to FB this often, please, provide me with weather forecasting, as well.  Moreover, adding tonight’s television lineup is considered a bonus, too.  You can leave out Gourmet Mc Donalds drive thru information.  I don’t care how good the mystery chicken nuggets are.
    “Tonight, you can expect a thundershower of bullets with an occasional stomping the living daylights out of you.  At 9:07 p.m., I suggest switching from Storage Wars to Cops followed by American’s Most NEWLY Wanted.”

  • JohnQknowitall

    You have no one to blame, but yourself.

  • princessgrandma

    Hmmm…. maybe I’m doing Facebook wrong. 

  • JGo555

    He killed the only person that would’ve visited & put money in his PRISON account.

  • JGo555

    Is this STUPID CRIMINAL day!? A naked woman, an animal abuser that leaves his address at the “scene” of the crime, a killer that provides “insightful” info into his life (really, he tried to sound smart & ended up sounding like a fucking doofus).

  • JGo555

    Maybe she was trying to be a better mom but it was too late…

  • JGo555


  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    I know. I need to start killing people and running from the cops.

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    No, I’m sure his Facebook solids n friends will do that.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I thought every day was Stupid Criminal Day here on the DD.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Sometimes a parent’s best efforts are not good enough. Too bad she didn’t recognize this sooner and allow someone else a chance. Even an additional failed effort could not be worse.

  • curiousalways

    hey you know what?  It would make it pretty interesting for all of us if you just posted on fb (after of course friending us all) that you were going around killing people.  You wouldn’t actually have to do it, I would love the updates as things progress. 

  • curiousalways

    HAHA!!  and then he snitches on himself and gets caught.  priceless

  • CT

    I got a relative you can practice with – just let me know.  Maybe start with a beat down to get the hang of it?   Friend me and we can work something out.  K? 

  • DangerousKindOfSnark

    Would you really want me making up FB updates? It’d be like a cross between Fear & Loathing and From Dusk til Dawn. 

  • curiousalways

    sounds much better than my lame fb friends….

  • Califboy

     Leave you cell phone and mobile devices at home as well as you car if its newer and has gps on it, just saying, when they catch you, you don’t want to end up on here with us making fun of you.

  • megaflytron


    He did all that and his Facebook updates STILL sucked.

  • He was a real SOLID POS – Him and his kind are SOLIDS 4 LIFE!

  • My_Mind_Speaks

    I was just thinking the same thing!

  • newstarshipsmell

    Nah, they’re a bunch of Type 7’s.

  • HarleyJQuinne

    Facebook & YouTube are the downfall of the modern day dumbass criminal. When will people learn just becoz you can share everything with everyone doesn’t mean you should.
    But in his case it didn’t matter coz he would have been prime suspect número uno given his prior argument with his mom.
    And I wonder how he failed to carjack someone? Was he no longer in possession of the gun? I know that would have given me plenty of motivation to leave my car before I saw the butt end of a gun upside my head.

  • What a Dumb Ass.

  • Thanks for the map guy, we’ll be there shortly.

  • dude wtf kind of hard core street gangsta cred do you think you have while updating your status on a trendy social network page?

  • Reen B

     That’s okay, he’ll be a liquid by the time he rots in the slammer.

  • Fucking fuck dog coward bitch muther fucker ass eater gang wana be butt fuck stupid darwin dick munch….

  • I don’t give a hootenanny as long as they’re not FLOATERS!
