FERGUSON, MO (KTVI) – The Major Case Squad is activated in Ferguson after a young mother is found dead in her home. Was the killer caught on camera? That’s what her relatives believe.
The apartment where the victim lived is surrounded by surveillance cameras. Her family members are confident the killer was captured on camera entering and exiting the building.
A relative found 25-year-old Sharae Bradford`s nude body face down on her bed Saturday night in her Versailles apartment. The complex is located in the 1500 block of Northwinds Estate Drive.
While the cause of death is not known, family members say Bradford was lying in a pool of blood. They believe the person responsible for Bradford`s death is a man she met on Facebook last week. He dropped by her home for the first time Saturday night.
They say the man is mentally ill and has a long criminal record of violent crimes against women.
“We didn’t know this until everybody started posting things on Facebook about him. They say they know he did this. We know he did this, my daughter is killed. My daughter is murdered because of this.” said the victim’s mother Yolanda Seay.
There are surveillance cameras strategically placed around the apartment complex. Family members say major case detectives took the video from the cameras. The detectives have been coming and going from the Ferguson Police Department all day following leads. So far they have not commented about the case.
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.
