Brandon Moore Assault On Josey Trupp
Brandon and Josey met each other at school and they dated each other for over two years. Brandon was controlling and he used to hit her in anger.
The violent boyfriend used to go blackout in anger and punch her in the face. As he calmed down, he would not even remember that he had hit her.
It was Moore who ended up the relationship a couple of days before the horrific incident happened. He said that he did not want to hurt her because of his periodic anger issues.
Moore could not deal with his jealousy over the fact that his partner was moving on in her life. After a few days, he showed up at her door while she was spending some time with her male friend.
The boy walked straight into her house and saw her sleeping on the sofa beside her friend. He thought that the girl was in a relationship with her friend. He threatened her to come out to talk and Trupp agreed as she was unaware of the dreadful attack.
Filled with rage and violence, Brandon started to beat her up and faced her downwards on the ground. He dropped a concrete slab weighing around 35 kgs on her back leaving her in a pool of blood.
"During the attack, I was terrified but strangely calm because I thought he would stop and go home, I never thought it would go that far", she reported to the Mirror.
Moore had once told her that if he can't have her then no one can.
After a while when Josey's friend woke up and looked for her outside, he found her bleeding and called out paramedics for help. Her mother Rhonda arrived when she was rushed to the hospital.
