Teen slain in Fort Worth robbery was caught in crossfire, documents say

FORT WORTH -- Claudia Hidic was desperate for money.

On June 24, the 17-year-old former Trinity High School student began hounding a 43-year-old Overton Park West resident for cash, selling him an HK .40-caliber pistol for $100 and giving him two laptops as collateral for an additional $100.

She told him that she needed the money to get her boyfriend out of jail.

The teen returned a few days later asking for $600, but the man refused to give it to her.

As he drove home from his job in Dallas on the afternoon of June 28, the resident got a phone call from Hidic, who said she was with a blond Italian girl who wanted to meet him. But the Fort Worth man became suspicious and declined to meet with the girls.

By 6:15 p.m. that day, Hidic lay dead at the back door of the man's home on Overton Park West, shot in what police say was a gunbattle during a robbery that the teen had coordinated.

I saw pictures of her. She looked like she could have been one of my daughter’s friends. I feel very bad for her family and her. She was a sinner, like us all.

However, actions have consequences.

"...and Claudia Hidic, the mastermind of the plot, was killed."

Not a very good 'mastermind', was she?

Wonder if this was her favorite movie?

All the details are in the Arrest Warrant for Curtis Fortenberry http://media.star-telegram.com/smedia/2012/07/10/10/31/x3Rsw.So.58.pdf

She dropped out of high school, wanted to act like a big bad girl and died trying

We live in this area...my kid had seen her around. Evidently she was living with her older sister (19-20 years old).
The movies and TV make it all seem so glamorous...hopefully for some of the 1000+ kids at her former school this will be somewhat of a wake up call to get out of the ‘wrong crowd’.

Wait a minute.

She sold him a pistol, then tried to rob him?

Not too bright was she?

Read some of the comments. Apparently someone mentioned the word gypsy and someone else took offense and said it was hurtful, etc. If I had their address I’d consider sending them a box of Kleenex so they can dry their eyes.

Interesting comments at that link. Dallas isn’t usually associated with a gypsy population, but I guess many big cities have some.

Hmm. A pretty good pistol for $100 and two laptops for $100 more? Sounds like the guy was buying stolen goods - and knew it.

Not going to say anything about a 17 year old with a pistol to sell, since I don’t have a moral problem with that.

“Caught in the crossfire” implies innocence. I’m not seeing it

Dead wigga ho, a shame really; a product of the left’s state sponsored dominant racist criminal thug culture.

And a 43 year old man was just trying to be helpful to the busty teen girl, deperate for money, selling a gun and computers. He sounds like a saint.

Yeah. Forgot about that part.

I guess this is a “red on red” with no net loss for society.

“She sold him a pistol, then tried to rob him?”

From the headline I thought she was an innocent girl riding her bike or something when she got “caught in the crossfire”.

Those look like 1$ bills in hers pants. I guess she had low self esteem.
