According to police, Lopez Webster, 32, entered Timothy Kingery’s home at about 9:00 p.m. that evening and ordered the man to his knees. He yelled something unintelligible at the man two or three times, Kingery didn’t know what dude was going on about, before he proceeded to get stabby.
Police say Kingery was left with three stab wounds on his arm, as well as lacerations to the chest, right arm and neck.
Webster then reportedly grabbed something from the house and ran off.
Just a few blocks down the street, police say, Webster started running along a double set of train tracks. According to a witness waiting for the train to pass, Webster crossed one set of tracks without issue. When he tried to jump between the cars rumbling down the second set of tracks, well, he went and got himself all broken.
“Whatever he was trying to do, he wasn’t successful in doing that,” said Sgt. Jason Halifax. “He slipped, or didn’t make the jump, or didn’t clear the jump and landed on the tracks where the train ran him over.”
“He’s actually cut in half by the train,” Halifax added. “Physically cut in half by the train.”
The engineer of the Union Pacific train had no idea what had happened and continued on. Authorities stopped the train a ways down the tracks.
I guess it’s safe to assume Webster won’t be facing charges. I know this will probably come as a surprise to some of you, but Webster did have a criminal record. Drug and assault charges dating back to the year 2000, and he was last arrested on November 29 for theft — those charges were dismissed.
As for Kingery, he refused medical assistance. He also denied knowing Webster, but police apparently think he’s full of shit. He isn’t exactly being cooperative with the investigation. *cough* drugs *cough*Tags: Des Moines, Home Invasion, Iowa, Lopez Webster, Stabbing, Timothy Kingery
