DALLAS, TEXAS – Police say 36-year-old Larry Dunn Jr. confessed to them he stabbed his girlfriend to death after she told him she was HIV positive, according to a police arrest affidavit.
Cicely Bolden, a 28-year-old mother of two, was found dead inside her apartment. Police say she suffered “multiple stab wounds to her neck area and was undressed from the waist down,” according to court documents.
About two hours after the murder, Bolden’s two young children, ages 7 & 8, reportedly found her body, KDFW reported.
Latoya Arnett, a neighbor, told KDFW Bolden’s children came out of the house screaming, “Something’s wrong with mama!”
Dunn told authorities he went to Bolden’s apartment to have sex with her, according to the affidavit. After they allegedly had sex, Dunn told police Bolden told him she had HIV but said “it is not that bad,” court documents say.
Allegedly upset that Bolden didn’t tell him she was HIV positive, Dunn told police he got up out of the bed and walked to the kitchen to get a knife, according to the affidavit.
He then walked back to the bedroom where Bolden was laying on the bed and “started stabbing her,” Dunn told police, according to court documents.
After the stabbing, Dunn told investigators he left the crime scene to get rid of the knife and to burn his clothes, police said in the affidavit.
Dunn told authorities he threw the knife in a trash dumpster at the Waffle House restaurant in Irving. A knife matching the one described by Dunn was later recovered from the dumpster, police said in court documents.
“She killed me so I killed her,” Dunn told police in an interview, the affidavit states.
Dunn was subsequently charged with murder, and is currently behind bars at the Dallas County Jail.
“I just remembered a lot of blood,” Dunn told KDAF from behind bars. “I just went crazy.”
“She killed me and that is hard to feel sorry,” Dunn said in the interview with KDAF.
