Psycho For Love: Donavan Shane Leger stabbed his wife, Tracy Leger, to death – stabbing her 183 times

From Donavon Leger appeal: Construed to support the verdicts, the evidence showed that on the night of her death, Tracy left the home she shared with her brother, David Bumbalough, leaving her nine-year-old son with Bumbalough while she visited Brooks, a male friend with whom she was romantically involved.   During that evening, Leger telephoned Tracy’s house six to ten times;  his speech was slurred and he sounded intoxicated.   Tracy called Bumbalough and said that Leger had called her cell phone forty times, and that she was going to turn the cell phone off;  she suggested that Bumbalough take the house phone off its hook as well.   Tracy also said that she would return home shortly.

The next morning, Bumbalough helped Tracy’s son get ready for school and get on the school bus.   Bumbalough then saw Tracy’s vehicle behind the house;  he discovered her body lying near the vehicle.   There were 183 knife wounds on her body, including a number of defensive wounds and wounds that had been inflicted after death.   Tracy died of a cut to her jugular vein.

During their relationship, Leger had often been abusive toward Tracy;  he choked, punched, and kicked her, had thrown her on a bed, and pushed her across a room.   He was possessive and jealous, and unhappy that Tracy began a romantic relationship with Brooks after she separated from him.   He threatened to kill her;  she was scared of him, and Bumbalough moved into her house due to that fear.

The evidence authorized the jury to find Leger guilty beyond a reasonable doubt of the crimes for which he was convicted.

Update: Andy Wendell Purcell murder *Yuri Lara pled guilty, sentenced to prison; Morris & Logue will go to trial*


Andy Wendell Purcell

In a twisted form of justice, Yuri Sanchez Lara pled guilty today to manslaughter and several drug charges. He was sentenced to 1-15 years for the manslaughter and 5 years to life for the assorted drug charges. Noted that those drug charges may keep him in prison for most of his life (then he should be deported back to Guatemala), he got more prison time for the drugs than for the life of another man that was lost. Somewhere in this criminal justice system, the value of life is sometimes lost. The victim, Andy Wendell Purcell, was forgotten. But only by the criminal justice system. His family and friends will not forget him. Hopefully there will be justice when Morris and Logue go to trial.
