Monsters Among Us: Darius Kimbrough raped and killed Denise Collins; He was executed 11/12/2013

Denise CollinsFrom Kimbrough’s appeal: Kimbrough was convicted of first-degree murder on July 1, 1994, and was sentenced to death on December 9, 1994.   His conviction and sentence were affirmed by this Court on direct appeal.   The relevant facts as taken from the opinion on direct appeal are:  Kimbrough was convicted of first-degree murder, burglary of a dwelling with a battery therein, and sexual battery with great force and was sentenced to death consistent with a jury recommendation of eleven to one.   The victim, Denise Collins, was found nude and semi-conscious in her bathroom by paramedics;  she was covered with blood.   The sliding glass door to her second floor apartment was partially open, and there were some ladder impressions under the balcony.   Collins was rushed to the hospital, where she died soon thereafter.

The officers took semen evidence from the bedsheets, took blood evidence from the victim, and found pubic hairs in the bed and in a towel.   The samples were sealed in a bag and sent to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement lab for analysis.

A resident of the apartment complex-Lee-told officers that he had twice seen a man in the vicinity of the apartment and had seen a ladder on the apartment’s balcony.   Officers were unsuccessful in searching for the man, but later Lee identified Kimbrough from a picture lineup.   A workman in the complex-Stone-identified Kimbrough as a man who had watched him putting away a ladder in the complex around the time of the murder.

The DNA evidence showed that the semen taken from the bedsheets was compatible with Kimbrough’s, and some of the pubic hairs matched his.   There were, however, additional pubic hairs from another unidentified black man and a caucasian male.   The DNA evidence indicated that the blood samples taken from the bed matched Kimbrough’s.
