Police: LeFlore Co. Murder Suspect Bragged Killing Wouldn’t Be Solved
The man charged with killing pregnant Kaloni Flynn told a witness that if the 20-year-old woman didn’t end the pregnancy, he would “get rid of it for her,” a police affidavit states.
LeFlore County sheriff’s officials arrested Christopher Kenyon Simpson, 26, on Thursday on two counts of first-degree murder.
“He was believed to be the father of her unborn child,” said LeFlore County Sheriff Bruce Curnutt.
Her body was found in April in her parked car on McGinnis Lane in LeFlore County. She’d been shot in head, police said. Her purse was found in the car, but her cell phone was missing, according to the affidavit.
“She didn’t believe in abortion,” said Flynn’s father Herbert Flynn Jr. “That’s why she would not have an abortion. She just loved life.”
“Basically I believe the reason why she ended up meeting him that night was to get information from him,” said Flynn.
According to the affidavit, investigators tracked a pre-paid cell phone that made multiple calls to Flynn minutes before she died. The report states the phone was traced back to Simpson.
“He lived not even a quarter of a mile from our house,” said Flynn.
A murder weapon hasn’t been found, but with circumstantial evidence, the sheriff says he’s confident they have their killer.
“I will be even more relieved when we have a guilty verdict,” said Flynn.
Kaloni Flynn was excited about having the baby, according to family. She also had plans to return to school and major in nursing. Family say they’ll miss her ’10,000 dollar smile’ the most.
“This was a senseless, needless, cold blooded murder,” said Flynn.
