Ex-Boyfriend Killed With Hatchet During Assault

January 15, 2013 at 2:22 am by  

Christopher Wayne MooneyAmarillo, TX —  Investigators say a man accused of attacking his ex-girlfriend at her Amarillo apartment has died after a struggle with her current boyfriend.

Police were called to a residence in Amarillo early yesterday morning by a woman reporting her ex-boyfriend had entered her home and assaulted her. Police are not naming the woman at this time, but say she had been involved with the man for about a year and a half. The two had apparently separated at least 6 months prior to the alleged attack.

Police reports indicate that around 3 a.m., Christopher Mooney, 37, entered the woman’s residence and grabbed her by the throat and attempted to drag her out of the apartment.

The woman’s uncle, 52 year old William Martin, who lives in an apartment adjacent to the woman, heard her screams and came running. Luckily, the woman’s current boyfriend, who lives with her, also came to the rescue. When Mooney refused to free the woman, he grabbed the first weapon he could find and struck Mooney with it to get him to release the woman.

The ex wasn’t as lucky – the weapon was a roofing hatchet that split his chest open.

According to Mr. Martin, Mooney staggered back out of the house and onto the driveway. At that point, Martin reportedly went over to Mooney to check on him and wake him up. “His eyes were sunk back in his head,” Martin said. “And I knew he was dead.”

Police searched Mooney’s car and found two guns in it. Reports also state that he has a “long criminal history” which mostly consists of drug charges. No speculation on why the ex went to the woman’s house or whether drugs/alcohol might have been involved. According to a police source that situation is “still being investigated” and at this time neither the woman or her current boyfriend have been arrested.

    Split his chest open with a roofing hammer – wow, that’s got to hurt! I’m so glad to hear the outcome of this, especially after factoring in the ex’s criminal history and the fact that he had guns in the car. This could have turned out very badly for her. Instead the POS is gone for good.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    This is my freaking worst nightmare. Just open the door one day expecting the Schwan’s man or Jehovah’s witnesses, and BAM. Crazy ex boyfriend with guns. Right there on the front porch.

    I need more weapons. I am vastly understocked.

  • MyHovercraftIsFullofEels

    Who knew that roofing hatchets were reasonably priced weapons that don’t need a waiting period.

  • newstarshipsmell

    So his figuratively broken heart got transformed into a literally broken heart? Neat.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I think the boyfriend has found his crowbar.

  • newstarshipsmell

    You could dig a stake-lined pit underneath your porch and install a trapdoor. That sounds more fun that shooting them.

  • gotdro69

    Chris was a good person who took care of both his parents who had disabilitys. I’m sure you don’t know the whole story so who are you to judge him. So go f yourself ahole.

  • Kat

    I don’t care if his parents are blind, deaf, mute and limbless and he piggybacked them around the countryside this is NOT a good person. Good people don’t have LONG criminal histories. They especially don’t show up at their exes house at 3am, with 2 guns in the car and grab her around the throat so she screams loud enough to alert neighbors. He is NOT a good person. And now he is dead. The End. :)

  • gotdro69

    I do see where your coming from. He was a nice guy I guess I’m still shocked over the news

  • Andyman

    You appear to be unaware of why this site exists. So -You fuck your own self. I’m glad the tard got offed. We need fewer crack heads with long criminal histories going after their exes with guns in their car. Boo fucking hoo about the excuses of why said dead guy was a tard. It was bush’s fault. Lol

  • http://masonillustration.wordpress.com/ DamagedGoods

    Taking care of your ailing parents does not give you carte blanche on the rest of your behaviour.

  • gotdro69

    I guess your right. I did forget what and who this sight is for so my apologies. I do hope that your boyfriend treats you respectfully while he wears out your sphincter.

  • Andyman

    I accept your back an apology. Lol

  • gotdro69

    True I hadn’t heard from the guy in 3 yrs. Apparently he snapped somewhere between now and then. It happens. And if the story is accurate he got what was coming to him. Anyway R.I.P. Chris you were cool when I knew you.

    Next thing you know they’ll be trying to ban those too.

    I’m laughing because as you know my people are Witnesses and I just placed an order with Schwan’s. Now I’m picturing my mother on your porch holding groceries and a Watchtower.

  • gotdro69

    Less crackheads = better world you win andyman in hindsight he got what he deserved. He was a very intelligent person when I knew him. I just had a hard time believing he would go through all that over a female

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Rochell-Arnold/100000587657456 Rochell Arnold

    Get a roofing hatchet. I hear they work wonders…. Sorry, I’m in a weird ass mood today.

  • Zazen

    Does anyone else think he looks like Clancy Brown from Highlander? He was obviously a fan of the ‘There can be only one!!1′ scenario, but he was apparently too stupid to remember that Clancy Brown’s character always got his ass kicked.

  • CT

    You have a friend. It’s always fun when the fuck you, you don’t know the story folks stop by for a visit. The DD derelicts, the folks you love to hate.

  • CT

    He may have been good to you but by all reports it doesn’t appear that he was all that stellar of an individual. It’s always amazing what people will do for what they believe to be love. We like to think that being with someone makes us a better person but as we see – it doesn’t make you better especially when that person has moved on from you.

  • CT

    Individual deep dish pizzas and chocolate chip cookie sandwiches – I’m gonna have to take my chances. Hey Schwann man…

    Though this is way I have doorbell that doesn’t actually work.

  • Andyman

    Right. Thanks CT. Smh

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Yeah, he DID get what he deserved.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Sundae cones! Mmmm!!!

  • Heather_Habilatory

    That was one hilarious mental image!

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Ooooh, this is brilliant.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    Perfect. :)

  • JohnQknowitall

    (1) dated perp with petty record and violent streak for 1.5 years (2) moves in with another man less than 6 months after 1.5 year relationship ends (3) has a roofing hatchet laying around the house (4) lives in Amarillo, TX… I want to see this hot mess. Bet she has big straw dry bleached hair with a lot of hair spray.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    That’s what I refer to as “trailer trash blonde.”

  • sweekymom

    What are you? An old prison buddy of his?

  • gotdro69

    True he had issues but when I knew the guy he was good friend who would do anything for you. He took care of his family and he never showed any indication of being a lunatic and I just thought that should be noted. I don’t know what caused his drastic behavior I didn’t even think it was the same chris I knew until I saw his mugshot so excuse the hell out of me for having sadness over the unexpected death of and old friend. We can’t all be stellar ct but thanks for your dr. Phil like insight professor you may well be on your way to stellardom.

  • http://masonillustration.wordpress.com/ DamagedGoods

    I’m sorry, it must be unbelievably shitty to find out something like this about someone you care about.

  • CT

    I am a total dickhead at heart. I’m not one for Dr.Phil – I’m more of a Maury person if the opportunity arises and I actually have the day off. Yesterday, he had Pancake on and she thought her man was cheating. Poor Pancake.

  • gotdro69

    No I’m just a person who knew him before he turned all emo.

  • JohnQknowitall

    I apologize for correcting you, but she lived in an apartment. Please categorize correctly: Trailer Trash Blonde (no), Eurotrash Blonde (no), Row House Trash Blonde (no), Country before Country was Cool Trash Blonde (not enough info), Garden Apartment Trash Blonde (check that one yes)… Checking off Anywhere Below the Mason Dixon Line Trash Blonde as yes is also acceptable.

  • gotdro69

    Thank you for your kind comment. It does change my outlook on the day some. And if I didn’t know chris personally my comments would have gone in a different direction if I would have had any comments at all. Thank for showing some compassion.

  • brandi

    ha,ha YOU fuck YOUR OWN SELF… classic ….

  • brandi

    was he cheating with her sister maple? Or her cousin marmalade??

  • gotdro69

    Thank you for acknowledging me as a derelict I can now ad that to the collection of names I’ve been called. Thanks for your contribution

  • CT

    Actually we are the DD derelicts but you can play too if you would like.

  • CT

    For some odd reason, I had always wanted to name a cat Bisquick because I wanted them to call out Bisquick, Bisquick at the vet but now after seeing someone with the name Pancake, it’s already played out.

  • CT

    You are killing me.

  • 18th40

    That was a compliment actually.

  • 18th40

    I’m picturing you not even being surprised.

  • gotdro69

    Oh I gotcha. Would you mind if I added it to the collection anyways it would mean alot.

  • gotdro69

    Thank you I was unaware.

  • gotdro69

    So this sight is for talking shit about random people and events. Count me in

  • lizard_spock

    Okay, so maybe I’m just so terribly wired wrong, but I swear those two lines, ‘His eyes were sunk back in his head,’ and ‘And I knew he was dead,’ could be sung to the tune of ‘Richard Cory’ from Simon and Garfunkel.

    And I can’t get the damn tune out of my head!

  • CT

    Hey, I WAS trying to make you laugh. BTW, I’m very needy. Just know that going into this relationship.

  • Buffettgirl

    Clearly he was someone with more sides than anyone knew about… Sorry you lost someone you called a friend, but, that being said, if he did this as it’s currently being reported, he chose to pull this stunt and he got what he deserved. When people do these things they leave themselves open to what the world thinks of them…

  • FrikkenFrak

    You have to excuse us. This is a crime story web site. And anyone who’s been visiting this site long enough eventually develops a certain attitude towards people who commit crimes. Sometimes we’re cynical and unforgiving. But, like those in law enforcement, you read Dreamin Demon and you’re going to see the very worst of humanity…it’s hard not to get jaded. We see the lowest of the low. It’s hard not to be misanthropic sometimes.

    I’ve read your comments here and your points are well taken. It’s difficult to say how your friend got so derailed, but you’re right that it is a shame. I certainly don’t think he deserved death….I reserve that for the pedophiles, rapists and serial murderers out there.

    As for Chris…well, everyone has different abilities when it comes to coping with the shit life throws at us. That one person cracks up and another stays strong isn’t a character flaw. It’s just the way each of us is wired. I’m sorry you lost a friend.

  • brandi

    some times, when things seem impossible, maury lets us know that nothing is impossible.

  • brandi

    alomost didn’t recognize ya, love the new avatar

  • 18th40

    I can just see him nodding and backing away slowly towards the virtual exit right about now.

  • brandi

    you could ad it, but it would probably cost alot, and no one would pay attention, it’s better to add it instead.

  • brandi

    it’s ok, you can say fuck yourself, and ass hole, no one cares

  • gotdro69

    I know I stumbled across this sight looking for news about my friend and the first thing I read was not exactly what I was looking for and I got a little angry. I have never been to this site before so I had no idea what it was about. It is sad you think you know someone really have no idea

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    I’m not sure about all of his sides, but he now has two halves.

  • FrikkenFrak

    I replied to your comments below.

  • CT

    Well shit, that Diet Mountain Dew that I spewed on my keyboard is NOT going to make with popular with the IS guys now either. Damn you.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    “it’s hard not to get Jaded” – yeah sometimes she is all over you. ;)

  • FrikkenFrak

    Heather, seriously? Isn’t that a bit much considering the crime?

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    I always wanted to name a dog “stain”. So if it ran away I could yell out “Come Stain!” all over the neighborhood.

  • Buffettgirl

    I know what you mean, I went to school with someone that we all thought was just punk, pure UK style 70′s punk, turns out that he was hiding his Aryan side. Not long after we graduated high school (1988) he was part of the group that attacked, beat, kicked and killed Mulugeta Seraw here in Portland. An Ethiopian going to Portland State University. I would never have believed that the guy that made me laugh the most for the past 6 years was capable of such hate. Even though he has now turned his life around, it still stuns me to this day when I think about it.

  • gotdro69

    Thank you. I feel the same way about people I don’t know and I guess he had it coming but when it’s someone you hung out with for any period Of time you don’t always look at it from all angles. if I didn’t know him personally I would have thought he was just another scumbag to.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    … an oldie, but, goodie! LOL!

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Seriously, FF? He was in the process of chokin’ the livin’ shit outta her!

  • JGo555

    Let this be a lesson to all ex-abusers MALES OR FEMALES.

    You COULD be the dead dude in this situation, just fucking let it go.

  • CT

    You said crowbar – I thought I heard it.

  • Suzy Sears

    I just snorted milk through my nose rofl! I had this mental pic of my mom-in-law calling “come stain” it would be too much! I would laugh myself into a heart attack roflmaopmp

  • 18th40

    Just do what I do, stare at a spot on the wall, rock slowly, don’t blink for a long time and just keep repeating, ‘it’s leaking..it’s leaking…it was oh so pretty before but now…it’s leaking’. They usually get you a new one.

  • 18th40

    Oh this is fantastic, I now have that image set to the music of “Wildfire”(nails meet chalkboard), only now “come stain” replaces ‘Wildfire’ in the chorus as the star of our song. Gonna be a long day.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=736546181 Michael Heldman

    Wrong white substance.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Bitch is stalking me… *shivers*

  • newstarshipsmell

    Yep, stick around if that’s your thing. Don’t mind the animosity – understand that 99% of the time, when some friend/family member turns up here to defend a criminal, they are completely blind to reality and adamant about the (alleged) criminal’s innocence, or tell us we’re all evil/bastards/etc., or we don’t know the whole story and the news is always lies, etc. And of course they never have any evidence for their claims, if they even bother to explain why their family member/friend is innocent, or the charges unjustified.

    It’s so fucking predictable that the members have come to refer to them collectively as “Tard Defenders.” So the second you spoke up in his defense that’s what everyone pegged you for. (They also generally can’t spell or communicate for shit, which should’ve alerted our first responders that we were dealing with a normal, intelligent person.) But I think most of them have caught your point – you only knew him as a decent guy and the news blindsided you, eliciting an adverse reaction from you to our commentary.

    I imagine that most of the perps that’ve been featured here are decent to someone in their lives; it always comes as a shock to find out someone you admired/respected had a side to them you didn’t see. I guess just be thankful that you found out via the news rather than being on the receiving end of that revelation. Sorry you lost a friend.

  • newstarshipsmell

    I wish the lesson were “you’re going to get yourself killed over this obsession anyways, so just suicide yourself now.”

  • Zazen

    She’s easily distracted with bacon, tarsh.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Are you suggesting that I craft a bacon effigy of myself?

  • Sam

    Tsk tsk. Here Zazen was giving you a perfectly decent and effective diversion tip, and you have to turn it into Jaded eating you? :P

  • newstarshipsmell

    Proving that two halves don’t make a whole. But they may make a hole, instead.

  • techsupp0rt

    Only good abuser is a dead abuser. Hurrah!

  • gotdro69

    Thanks I do appreciate that. My friend much like myself was far from innocent but I never thought he was capable of the violent nature of his crime. I think I’m more shocked by that than I am over his demise. I knew him as a easy going guy who was fun to hang out with and that’s how I want to remember him. My time on this sight started out kinda harsh but a lot of the comments I received after my small rant I feel were heartfelt and sincere so I don’t have any hard feelings over the matter.

  • gotdro69

    I want to apologize for the wearing out your sphincter comment I really did not know anything about this sight. Let me make it up to you by feeling like a dumbass.

  • Andyman

    Its really all good. I can appreciate how people close to those involved in these stories might take offence to random comments by those unfamiliar with the people involved. But on the surface and according to the article I read it is hard not to conclude what I posted. Thanks for your candor and no hard feelings.

  • Zazen

    Yes tarsh, that’s exactly what I was suggesting. I’d also like you to make a vid of the ensuing carnage and share it with all of us. This could be the closest the D’D crew is going to get to bath salts shenanigans, and really, getting the chance to see Jaded demolish her natural prey in the wild would be so worth it.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Well, I like your username, which is reason enough for me to ask you to stick around. I got neither :(

  • gotdro69

    How weird I was just in the process of complementing your name also. I guess great minds do think alike.

  • come_and_see

    Somebody’s getting some awesome sex tonight.

  • CT

    That is me stalking you. Christ almighty if you are gonna give Jaded credit for all of my hard work, I QUIT. BTW, where is my GF, LMB?

  • newstarshipsmell

    Uh, if you weren’t aware of your competition also stalking me, then I guess you aren’t stalking me hard enough.

  • gotdro69

    Completely understandable I was so sure it had to be another guy with the same name until I saw his pic I still can’t believe that was the same person I used to know. Its really disheartening to think that someone could change so drastically in such a small period of time. He was experimenting with meth and getting involved with some fucked up people when I lost contact with him but I never thought this would be the end result. Damn

  • Andyman

    That is how meth goes. Same with bath salts. I struggle with my own needs but once you factor in these serious drugs all bets are off. I hate that but it is what it is. I wish people didn’t become overcome with these things but the reality is many don’t. I hope your family wasn’t personally harmed in this arrangement but the reality is that you can’t control how people are or how they respond to their environment. I hope you find the peace in your life dedicated to your future.

  • gotdro69

    I don’t think they have released the names of the victim or her boyfriend but theres a good chance I know them to and I haven’t stopped to think how they were effected by all this but I’m pretty sure the guy didn’t start his day thinking its to cold to be on a roof today but I’m gonna put this hammer to use anyway.

    Not one bit.

    I fear this as well. I only have one crazy ex, but that is all it takes.

  • FrikkenFrak

    The use of the word “jaded” wasn’t lost on me. Couldn’t help it…it fits.

    As for Jaded, she probably has one of the better user names on the site, lol.

    He was just here, that was awesome. I love my Schwann’s man.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    You mean the “he was going to kill her” thing? Nope.

    It’s the same color. Just because they are colloquial terms.

  • Heather_Habilatory

    I’ve only got the one, too. Eeek.

  • gotdro69

    This does seem like a good safe place to vent. I’m not a trouble maker but I’m not a big fan of most law enforcement agencys and I’m not real shy about expressing that so I’m sure I will clash with some but that’s what its all about right.I got one more comment and I’m done with this topic though. Its seems like it will be more entertaining if don’t know the person.

  • gotdro69

    I’m not real sure what big straw dry bleached hair is but being from amarillo and being a new guy to this sight I have an uncontrollable urge to prove myself and correct you its called a roofing hammer not hatchett. Learn how to proof read your comments and you wont come across as such a dumbass.

  • JohnQknowitall

    Wrong. It also refers to amount of cranial seepage of chemicals to the brain.

  • LeaveMeBe

    I think you handled yourself well, much better than most around here expected and most definitely not what we are used to. I was poking at everyone else by saying I could manipulate you into believing I’m not an ass. I really am, in a good-natured bitchy sort of way. Nice to meet you, I am LeaveMeBe, but you can call me LMB for short.

  • newstarshipsmell

    Except that the point of it was to distract her from me, not make me completely irresistible to her.

    Perhaps. But what do you expect when girls suddenly start chasing me after years of criminal neglect?

  • newstarshipsmell

    I like how you told him your name, just in case he missed it next to your avatar.

    It may take you a little while to come to terms with this new version of him that you’ve had a rather hard introduction to. I’ve had this happen a few times in my life, and it’s never easy to realize that a person you thought you knew well, and that you thought was a good man, had a carefully hidden Mr. Hyde that he let out and it got him killed or sent to prison. My apologies, I was harsh in my earlier remark, and I should not have been. Welcome to DD. Hope you’ll stick around.
