To No One's Surpirse, Dirtbag With Long Rapsheet ID'd as Shooter

So here we go... the trio of Natural Born Killers (read: Liberals on Meth) have been returned to Marin County - the very seat of justice - and have been arraigned on murder charges.  To no one's surprise, the guy with the really long rap sheet has been ID'd as the shooter...

Three young drifters accused of two Bay Area killings were scheduled to make their first court appearance Wednesday in Marin County, as authorities identified which of the defendants they believe used a stolen pistol to kill a hiker and wound his dog near Fairfax.

Prosecutors said the triggerman in the Oct. 5 slaying of 67-year-old Tantra teacher Steve Carter in the Loma Alta Open Space Preserve was Morrison Haze Lampley, 23, who among the accused has the most serious criminal background (which anyone who does a websearch on his name can see).

Lampley, already on probation and parole for past offenses, was charged with personal and intentional use of a firearm in Carter’s death.

Lampley is charged along with Lila Scott Alligood, 18, and Sean Michael Angold, 24, with capital murder in the alleged cold-blooded killing of Carter as well as Audrey Carey, a 23-year-old Canadian backpacker whose body was found Oct. 3 in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park.

The Marin County district attorney’s office accused the threesome of lying in wait to kill Carter to rob him of his station wagon and other possessions. The three were arrested in Portland, Ore., two days later after investigators tracked them using the GPS in the stolen vehicle.

Though investigators did not identify who allegedly pulled the trigger in the shooting of Carey, they believe the three drifters also killed her in pursuit of her belongings. According to court documents, Lampley, Alligood and Angold had Carey’s camping gear, passport and airline tickets with them when they were arrested.

While all three face a series of charges — including murder, second-degree robbery, car theft, possession of stolen property and possession of a stolen car — Lampley was also charged with animal cruelty for allegedly wounding Carter’s Doberman pinscher.

Lampley’s criminal past involves drug, weapons and theft cases. Most recently, he was charged in May in San Diego County with the selling or receiving of a stolen vehicle, a felony, and with stealing a dog, a misdemeanor. He pleaded guilty to the felony charge, got 97 days in jail and was placed on probation.

San Francisco police said the same Smith & Wesson handgun was used to kill both Carey and Carter, and that the firearm had been taken in a car burglary in a residential area near Fisherman’s Wharf sometime between late Sept. 30 and early Oct. 1.

The gun was in a lockbox in an unlocked car, police said, and both the pistol and lockbox were later recovered from the suspects. None of the three was charged with stealing the gun, though, with investigators saying there was little surveillance video in the area and no witnesses have come forward.

Marin County District Attorney Ed Berberian said it was too early to say whether prosecutors will seek the death penalty.  (This is a bit worrying.  MCDA Ed Berberian is frankly a bit of puss.  He was the asshole who chose to maliciously prosecute a Marin resident for justifiably defending himself with a firearm after a road rage incident.  He is one of those Liberal imbeciles who think that 'the gun' is the real killer.  Furthermore, like most Liberals, he is a killer-lover and I will eat my hat if Marin County pushes for the DP in this case.  And, like most Liberals, Berberian saves his compassion for the guilty instead of the innocent.  Just because he's a DA doesn't change this.  I mean, look at Ross Mirkarimi!)

“We have a very involved process that we follow in this county,” he said in an interview Tuesday.

“We seek input from the law enforcement agencies involved, we will be reaching out to the families of the victims for their thoughts, and we will be even making it possible for the defense to give us their input as well (certainly to a larger extent than they deserve).”

The Archdiocese of San Francisco performed blessings Tuesday near the sites of the two killings.

In Golden Gate Park, Daniel Nascimento, pastor at St. Anne of the Sunset Catholic Church, led the short service at the site of Carey’s slaying. With eyes shut tight and a furrowed brow, he clutched an orange binder of Scriptures as he prayed that the Carey family be comforted and the perpetrators be forgiven. He took out a tiny vessel of water and doused the liquid over dried leaves on the ground and surrounding trees.

“May her blood not bring upon more bloodshed,” he prayed. “Through this holy water may it wash clean.”
