An STD rumor may be at the root of the recent murder-suicide deaths of three women and one man in North Carolina, according to relatives of one of the victims.
The bodies of 23-year-old Alexandria Pierce, 24-year-old Amesha Page-Smith, 22-year-old Adrianne Stevens and 23-year-old gunman Brinton Millsap were found Saturday (June 18) on the side of a Durham highway.
Authorities believe Millsap killed the women in the car before taking his own life.
Family members say that a nasty STD rumor may have sparked the deaths. According to Pierce’s mother, her daughter went to Durham along with her friends to talk to Millsap about a rumor that she had given him herpes. According to Pierce’s mother, one of Pierce’s friends had apparently started the false rumor.
