Moral of the story: Beware of people named "Starquineshia."

Nothing specified. From another report:

http://www.wctv.tv/news/headlines/TPD_FAMU_Player_Stabbed_Killed__129209578.html?ref=578

The investigation determined she did not live in the apartment, but traveled to Tallahassee from Central Florida to visit the victim for the weekend.

The victim and Palmer began to argue in the early morning hours, resulting in Palmer stabbing the victim with a kitchen knife.

Palmer was detained and transported to the Tallahassee Police Department where she was interviewed and subsequently charged with first degree murder.

Palmer was then transported to the Leon County Jail.

Arrested: Starquineshia Palmer, black female, 10/26/1990

This isn’t Starquineshia Palmer first run in with the law. She has been arrested several times in Florida for probation violations. We have a few more details about the murder.

It appears that Starquineshia and Shannon got into an early morning fight. The fight escalated from verbal to physical. Starquineshia grabbed a kitchen knife and that is when she stabbed Shannon. She fled the scene, but was captured a little later.

I can beat it. There was, in Lousiana, a child named “L-a”. Yes, that is correct 2 letters and a symbol. When the time came to enroll the child in school, an administrator pronounced the child’s name as La, to the fury of the mother. The mother replied, sounding it out phonetically, “ it’s La deesh sha, the dash don’t be silent”.

Given the circumstances, likely a “lovers’ quarrel.”

It’s possible, but also possible that there’s a man involved.

Well, I’m not sure it’s a man but, I’d be willing to bet, some kind of significant other type of relationship is involved.

Sounds like lesbian domestic violence. Just a guess. I’ve seen it a lot more than the MSM likes to admit it happens.
