Reginald Kimbo May Get The Death Penalty For Rape & Murder

    The Tarrant County District Attorney's Office announced Thursday that it will seek the death penalty for Reginald Kimbro. Kimbro, 23, is accused of raping and strangling 22-year-old Molly Matheson in her apartment April 10 near Texas Christian University's Fort Worth campus.

    Authorities believe he also raped and murdered Megan Getrum, a 36-year-old Plano woman, about a week later.

    According to police, Kimbro said he went to Matheson's apartment after she texted him. Kimbro said the pair became physical — they'd dated before — but that he left after Matheson turned him down for sex. Police believe he raped Matheson, killed her and left her in the bathroom. Matheson's mother found her dead in her apartment.

    The other case police say is linked to Kimbro has a different origin. Getrum left her Plano home April 14, went for a walk at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano and never returned. Police believe Kimbro attacked and killed Getrum, whom he did not know, and then dumped her body in Dallas' Lake Ray Hubbard. A passerby spotted Getrum's body in the lake April 15.

    U.S. Marshals arrested Kimbro on April 27 for Matheson's murder. In the affidavit they filed to get a warrant for Kimbro, police said he was a suspect in two additional rapes — one in Plano in September 2012 and one on South Padre Island in March 2014. In both of those cases, the victims were choked as they were raped, as were Matheson and Getrum.

    According to the affidavit, Plano police did not charge Kimbro with the 2012 Plano rape because “there came a point during the investigation in which [the victim] no longer wished to pursue the case.”

    Plano police filed a warrant May 26 for Kimbro for Getrum's murder. They believe it is possible that Kimbro has committed additional murders and rapes.

    If one of the inmates slit his throat, would they call that a Kimbro Slice?
