In what quickly became a horrifying lesson for those against police having access to lethal force, a 77-year-old woman from a gated community in Atlanta was stabbed to death in her own garage last week.
Eleanor Bowles, the woman in question, was initially discovered on the garage’s floor around 5:30 PM by her son.
This was more than a couple of hours after 23-year-old Antonio Brown broke into her home and attacked her with the intent of stealing her vehicle.

The police report suggests Brown broke into Bowles’ home before noon, attempting to steal her Lexus RS350, after which he was discovered by her.

Brown quickly proceeded to stab the elderly woman around a dozen times, taking off in her car immediately afterward; although his efforts were futile, as the Lexus was followed and retrieved on the same day.
What remains a mystery is how Antonio Brown managed to gain access to the gated community, seeing as they exist solely to prevent incidents like this from happening. This isn’t to say that he couldn’t have broken in, just as he did with Eleanor’s garage.
Had the woman’s son not been planning to visit her for the holiday season, Eleanor would be discovered only a couple of days after; there’d been no chance of tracking Brown or the car he took off in down.
When I was a young man, Buckhead was the place to be. So many great bars & clubs & restaurants. It saddens me greatly to see what it and most of downtown ATL has become now. It’s just terrible. pic.twitter.com/iXfD2akQeW

Antonio Brown could be facing years in prison
Atlanta Police Department’s Deputy Chief Charles Hampton Jr. stated to the press this is not the way a family should be forced to spend a holiday season, mourning the death of a loved one at the hands of a criminal.
Thankfully, Brown won’t go unpunished, unless the BLM crowd decides to step in. He’s been charged with murder, aggravated assault, possession of a knife, hijacking a motor vehicle, and elder abuse, resulting in his being booked into the Fulton County Jail.
The city’s mayor, Andre Dickens, revealed Brown was recognized from a person of interest poster put up by the local law enforcement, after which he was arrested on the spot.

In a press conference following Brown’s arrest, Dickens offered his condolences to the Bowles family, adding the killing of the 77-year-old woman rocked the community to its core, which is an understatement considering the way she was murdered.
If anything, the police in Atlanta are allowed to do their work and successfully managed to arrest another one of the suspects involved in last month’s murders of two children.
Dickens reassured that anyone looking to do harm in Atlanta’s communities will be dealt with by the local law enforcement via proper punishment in line with the crime the person has committed.This article appeared in The Record Daily and has been published here with permission.
