GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. - A man abducted his ex-girlfriend Tuesday and then shot and killed her, her father and his ex-wife before running from the scene and later taking his own life, Clay County Sheriff Rick Beseler said.


"This is a terrible and tragic event for our community," Beseler said. "It brings to light the fragile nature of life and how things can happen in just a moment to ruin many, many lives and fracture many, many families."

Beseler said Murray Lancaster kidnapped his ex-girlfriend, Valorie Short, at gunpoint from a Green Cove Springs hair salon on Orange Avenue about 9:45 a.m. Tuesday and drove her to the Magnolia Point Golf & Country Club.

Beseler said Murray ran into Short's father, Welland "Buddy" Short, there and then shot and killed them both. Officers responding to 911 calls about the double shooting at Country Road 315 and Medinah Lane found the two victims dead.

While responding to that call, police got another call about a shooting at the Rosemary Hill Road landfill.

Lancaster had driven there to find his ex-wife, Erica Green Lancaster, who worked there, and shot and killed her, Beseler said.
Took a bit more than a "moment", didn't it? Note well that the sheriff doesn't even mention that a gun is what enabled this sick fuck to obtain his revenge. But no one could ever possibly have known, could they?

Shooter had violent history

Lancaster, a Green Cove Springs resident, was arrested in March on charges of battery of Valorie Short and resisting arrest without violence.

According to the police report, Lancaster and another man were fighting. When ordered to stop, Lancaster turned toward the officer "in an attacking manner as if he was about to fight police."

After the battery charge was filed, Valorie Short got a restraining order against Lancaster, which he was later arrested for violating, deputies said.

He had a hearing on the battery charge scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Clay County Courthouse.

“They were in a relationship and then they broke up, then things got crazy. It was an ongoing court thing,” Short's roommate, Brittany Burnley, said.

The Putnam County Sheriff's Office said Lancaster was fired last week from the Georgia-Pacific paper mill in Putnam County, and he made death threats directed at workers there, deputies said.

Because of those threats, the business was placed on lockdown until the Clay County Sheriff's Office confirmed Lancaster was no longer a threat.
Shut up, libtard, it's the price of freedom!

How "free" the victims are now is an unanswered question ('though some might say death is the only freedom from this world of shit & pain). Or is it all their fault, because they weren't as armed & deadly as their ex-family member?
