Police Hunt For Man Who Killed, Torched Girlfriend

MORENO VALLEY (AP) — Homicide investigators say a Southern California man charged with killing his ex-girlfriend and torching her body in front of her six children has eluded capture.

Riverside County prosecutors have charged Tyrone Levoid Harts, 39, with the Feb. 22 killing of 35-year-old Brandi Marie Morales in her Moreno Valley home. Harts is the woman’s former live-in boyfriend.

Sheriff’s investigators say Morales’ children, ages 6 to 15, witnessed the attack and one of the youngsters put out the flames.

Homicide investigators say in a news release Saturday that they are asking for the public’s help in finding Harts, who is described as armed and dangerous.

    Right, she definitely deserved to be torched because she has so many children. What a lame you are Bruce. Why is it that everyone is presumed illegal? Let’s drag the poor lady’s name through the mud so her children can remember her for what you decided to make up about her life.

    They will ban your comment shortly as I have been banned before. They are too sensitive and censor free speech.

      Freedom of speech does not mean you have the right to be an @Hole. You might want to study that Constitution a little closer. For God’s sake, look what happened to these people. Why should this site enable harrassment of the victims of this terrible tragedy, who obviously did nothing to deserve this? Is your heart that little, black, shriveled and cold that you think it’s OK to smack someone down through the computer where they can’t even see you? Someone who is already broken-hearted? Are other people’s lives a joke to you? Crimeny.

    So, Lenny, you are saying that not 1 legal US Citizen has the name “Morales”?
