Thirty five year old Willie Cory Godbolt was arrested by police in Mississippi this morning shortly before 7 am.
A policemen, 36 year old Deputy William Durr was killed during the first shooting at 11:30 pm along with three women at a home in Bogue Chitto.
The second incident was at a home in Brookhaven, MS. Two juvenile boys were found dead and a third was at a nearby residence where the bodies of a man and a woman were found, authorities said.
Godbolt told the Clarion-Ledger his intentions and that he did all of the killing because he loved his wife, children and Bogue Chitto.
“I was having a conversation with her stepdaddy (sic) and her mama (sic) and her, my wife, about me taking my children home,” he told the newspaper. “Somebody called the officer, people that didn’t even live at the house. That’s what they do. They intervene. They cost him his life,” the suspect said, referring to the slain deputy. “I’m sorry.”
“Suicide by cop was my intention. I ain’t fit to live not after what I’ve done, not in your eyes, not in nobody else’s eyes,” he explained. “But God, you know, he forgives you for everything.”
A 911 call was placed after a resident wanted Godbolt removed from the property initially started where the deputy and three others, were allegedly killed by Godbolt.
Such a senseless and tragic loss of life.
