A witness identified Greer as a man entering the victim’s apartment in a photo lineup. Surveillance video also shows Greer entering Bradford’s apartment complex at around 4:50pm. Video shows Greer, attempting to conceal his appearance, leaving her apartment complex at around 5:30pm.
A relative found 25-year-old Sharae Bradford`s nude body face down at around 6pm on her bed Saturday night in her Versailles apartment. The complex is located in the 1500 block of Northwinds Estate Drive. The victim was killed by a single gunshot wound to the back of the head.
The medical examiner also found seminal fluid on swabs applied to many parts of the victim’s body, according to the probable cause statement.
Family members say Bradford was lying in a pool of blood. They believe the person responsible for Bradford`s death is Stassie Greer. Bradford met him on Facebook last week. He dropped by her home for the first time Saturday night.
Investigators from the Major Case Squad have been working on this case. The victim’s phone and rent money was missing from her apartment. A search warrant was conducted at the Greer’s house and Bradford’s phone was found.
Family members tell FOX 2 that Bradford was an aspiring nurse and mother of a 6-year-old girl. They say they’re glad her daughter wasn’t home when she was killed.
